Applications are now available for AISD’s 10th incoming UpClose class for the 2017-2018 school year.
Eight sessions will take place from November 2017 to May 2018. Participants will learn about the District’s infrastructure, programs, services and understand the challenges and opportunities inside AISD.
AISD UpClose classes meet at various district sites to have an ‘inside look’ at key programs. Meetings are held from 11:30am-1:00pm. In addition to the meetings, participants create an impact project that is school-based. The timeline for this project is as follows:
November 29, 2017
December 13, 2017
January 17. 2018
January 31, 2018
February 28, 2018
March 28, 2018
April 11, 2018
April 25, 2018
Graduation: May 23, 2018
To date, more than 310 participants have gone through the program. AISD UpClose graduates are challenged to become leaders and advocates for the District, to volunteer for service on committees and task forces, to speak up when misinformation is circulating, and to encourage other parents and community members to get informed and involved.
Please note: Program is available for parents and communities members only. Not available to district staff.
