Geometry Readiness
The Geometry Path is new for our Rising 6th graders (current 5th grade). If your student would like to pursue the Geometry Path, they need to take the Geometry Readiness Assessment. The assessment results will be combined with 5th grade Math STAAR results to determine placement in the Geometry Math Path. Parents will be informed of placement the week of August 13th.

Online Registration
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.

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).

Social Media and Our Kids

Stay informed about social media issues such as cyber bullying, tips for parents to talk about social media, and how to protect your family from the negative impact of social media. Camera and video capability are powerful tools and require common sense. Let’s talk to our teens about when and where these tools are appropriate and empower them to use good judgment.
