AISD INTENT TO APPLY OPENS
Required for Application. This tool indicates for the district what programs you are intending to apply. In addition, MAC FAA accesses your teacher recommendations as well as AISD student grade reports through this system. Once you know which teachers will be completing recommendations for you, please complete this online form asap.
Go to Parent Cloud (my.austinisd.org) - new parents to AISD will go through a registration process to set up the account. Search for the "Online Registration" tile and complete for your student. All parents will then search for the "AISD Intent to Apply" to complete the form.
Once complete, you will be able to return at any time to the tool to monitor the progress of teacher recommendation submissions.
These zoom events are arranged with staff at specific schools. If you do not see your school listed, please ask your counselor to contact our office. If you do see your school and would like to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and/or contact your counselor.
