As school nears, AISD ensures students are prepared

AISD back to school

AUSTIN (KXAN) – Students will return to Austin Independent School District classrooms Monday, August 25. On Saturday, the district made sure families who can’t afford supplies are ready for the school year.

Saturday marked AISD’s 10th annual Back to School Bash. District officials gave away 3,000 backpacks filled with school supplies.

“I think it’s an amazing thing that they do this every year because there’s so many kids out there that don’t have a way of getting this,” AISD parent Mindy Robinson said.

There were also stations where students could get up to date on their immunizations and vision exams. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
