The Teach for America Austin Alumni Board Invites you to Neighborhood Policy Forums
Rather than hosting our 8th Annual Policy Forum this year, we decided to offer six corresponding to the AISD School Board Trustees’ districts.
Our goal is to engage and empower our neighborhood and community to support initiatives that expand access to high quality education for all kids in Austin. We hope you will come join us and participate in a conversation with YOUR local School Board Trustee (or one+ of your choosing) as we discuss their goals for Austin children, share our concerns regarding education, and brainstorm ideas on how we can support educational excellence. Bring a friend, a neighbor, or a co-worker for good conversation and refreshments.
Here are the details for each district. Check out this link to determine your district.
