    AISD Launches New Support Web Pages

    Austin ISD has launched new web pages full of resources, FAQs, and instructions to support Community Learning Spaces and caregivers as students begin learning remotely for the first four weeks of school. Community Learning Spaces are facilitated by community organizations, groups of parents, faith-based organizations, or public entities that provide in-person support to students during times of remote off-campus instruction, and you can find one online if needed.
    Beginning Sept. 8
