In January of last year, the Joint Committee of the Austin City Council, Austin Independent School District Board of Trustees and Travis County
Commissioner’s Court created the School and Family work group. This group was created to generate policy recommendations that supported schools and retained families in the central city of Austin. Pursuant to its charge, the Work Group examined existing reports and materials, gathered insights from subject matter experts within the City of Austin and AISD, and conducted substantial additional research. While the Work Group’s charge was specifically targeted to Central Austin, many of its proposed policies may have wider application throughout Austin and Travis County.
