ABILENE – The Abilene ISD will once again host an Ambassador Academy in 2019-20, giving citizens the chance to learn more about what’s going on inside the school district.
The purpose of the program – launched last year – is to develop parents and community members as ambassadors for the school district by familiarizing them with the different facets of operations and programming in the AISD. The district hosted five meetings at One AISD Center (241 Pine St.) last year and will do so again during the 2019-20 school year.
The first meeting is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 16, followed by meetings on Monday, Oct. 21, Monday, Nov. 11, Monday, Feb. 3, and a final meeting on Friday, March 27, when the members of the academy will tour several AISD campuses and facilities during the school day.
“At each meeting, we’ll have a different focus so that we can acquaint people who have a vested interest in our school district with the way the AISD works and the great things going on every day in our district,” AISD superintendent Dr. David Young said. “I believe those who participated last year got a really good glimpse at what’s happening in the AISD, and we’re looking forward to giving that same opportunity to this year’s group.”
Those interested in joining the academy for the 2019-20 school year must complete a short application form found here by Sept. 6. The program is open to the first 25 applicants, and they will be notified of their selection on Sept. 9.
