We know that many students last year watched the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. With the second season being released May 18, we wanted to take this opportunity to share some information with you.
Talk to your children:
We care deeply about the well-being of all our students and we know that you care about the well-being of your child. By working together, we can make a difference for all students at AISD. Thank for your support.

If you haven’t yet registered your student online for school next year, you may do so at any time. You will need to have or sign up for a Parent Cloud account in order to register online. For instructions on how to set up a Parent Cloud account, please visit www.austinisd.org/technology/parents-guardians/cloud
The Parent Cloud also allows you to access Parent Self-Serve to check your student’s grades, assignments, and attendance.
Please remember to write down your password for future reference.
To access Online Registration, click on the Student Registration icon on the Cloud Desktop. If you have students at other AISD schools, you should see them and can register all of your students at once. If you have any problems with online registration, please call your child’s campus or the Parent Technology Support Help Line at 512-414-9187. For more information, please visit www.austinisd.org/enroll.
If you prefer not to register your student online, you may complete the paper registration forms, which will be sent home with your student during the first week of school (August 20-24).
