The board has approved Resolution 8.2 Graduation Requirements and Grading.
Seniors: If passed, class rank would not be calculated at the end of the 6th six-week grading period. Rather, class rank would be calculated based on the semester average at the end of the 3rd six-weeks of the 2019-20 school-year, which has already been calculated and reported.
This resolution is not pass or fail. It's pass or incomplete, meaning students will be monitored for extra supports this summer or next year.

Mental well-being for our students is our #1 job. Learning standards are still in place and we have great teachers still in place to support students.
Chromebooks on AISD systems, Windows 10, iPad, generally a device that's less than 3 years old should work for continuous learning.
Middle school device delivery should be substantially complete by mid-next week. Devices will be delivered to elementary students in grades 3-5.
Device delivery will take abour four weeks with 1,300 deliveries per day. Deliveries were paused today to source masks/gloves for delivery employees.
Device delivery began with online and paper surveys that were provided to parents at food service sites. Deliveries were prioritized by highest-need.
AISD will announce bus locations in multiple ways - online, working with apartment complexes, visuals of a bus. Students do not need to congregate around the bus to access wifi.
Wifi hotspot buses will be deployed during a pilot this week to a few high-density areas. Testing will begin this week and a list of sites will be announced before next week.
Learning standards will be the same. How we get there will be different based on each campus.
There will be flexibility on the staff level as continuing learning. As further supports are needed, district-level staff can be re-deployed to support students directly.
Teachers will be documenting interactions with students and student progress throughout continuous learning. We will progress monitor for all students.
How can parents navigate learning for multiple kids? Cruz: Goal is to use Blend as home base with opportunities to expand opportunities with other platforms.
As our devices are rolled out to students, we'll also be providing some troubleshooting/contactless repairs as needed. More info to be shared.
The Board has reconvened. Watch live on AISD.tv.
The Board has recessed open meeting at 6:10 p.m. and moved to Executive Session. Board will convene privately in a separate video meeting the come back to the current video conference. #AISDBoard

- Official letter/email from school that shows children as enrolled - Individual student report cards - Attendance record from Parent Portal of school website - Birth certificate for children not in school - Student ID cards
Meals may still be provided to parents or caregivers, even when the child is not present, provided they have one of the following forms of documentation at the point of meal service:
Starting Monday, April 6th, we will no longer be distributing meals to parents or caregivers. Individuals age 19 and older are encouraged to reach out to the Central Texas Food Bank for food assistance at this time.
Our meal distribution program during campus closures has seen a tremendous response, with tens of thousands of meals served daily. We're thrilled that the community is using the program, ​and we need to focus our resources on serving students (age 19 and younger).
