Help AISD reconnect with the community

Wednesday, March 24, 2021 by Tai Moses

Austin ISD is launching a door-to-door campaign on Saturday, April 10, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., “to reconnect Austin families with AISD program offerings” like free prekindergarten, before- and after-school enrichment, free career preparation programs and early college high schools. Operation Reconnect, as the effort is dubbed, involves teachers, staff members and community volunteers working in teams, walking blocks and sharing information about the district’s programs with the community. The event is focused on schools in the district’s northeast corridor, including Andrews, Harris, Pecan Springs and Winn elementary schools; Garcia Young Men’s Leadership Academy and Sadler Means Young Women’s Leadership Academy; and Northeast ECHS. Volunteers will receive breakfast, PPE and an Operation Reconnect T-shirt. Sign up to volunteer on the event page or email Operation Reconnect leads Katrina Bailey at or José M.A. Velásquez at
