Bertha Sadler Means Young Women's Leadership Academy


Sadler Means Young Women’s Leadership Academy kicked off Black History Month this past week with a virtual presentation by guest speaker Mikaila Ulmer, CEO of Me and the Bees Lemonade. 

AISD will partner with the Central Texas Food Bank to provide access to healthy food while campuses are closed for the winter break.

Because #AttendanceMatters you are invited to join Austin ISD in knocking out the flu!

To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, students at Sadler Means Young Women’s Leadership Academy participated in an inspiring virtual conversation with award-winning broadcast journalist Olga Campos Benz.

Your voice is always valuable to us, and especially now as the district continues working through reopening campuses for the 2020–21 school year.

It is important that our families understand the many security practices we have implemented to prepare to resume some in-person instruction starting October 5.

Students can submit entries through Oct. 12. Awards Ceremony will be broadcast Oct. 15.


Dear Austin ISD Family, 

Early this morning, the Austin ISD Board of Trustees approved a revised school calendar which reflects students’ first day as September 8. 

Austin ISD is happy to announce the launch of our mobile app—a new way to stay connected.

The app will allow all AISD students, staff and families to receive notifications from the district and campuses for which they wish to subscribe.

At-Home Distance Teaching and Learning:

Austin ISD will host two virtual information sessions to help give students, families and staff a stronger sense of what the return to school will look and feel like in August. 

The health and safety of our students and staff are at the forefront of all of our decisions. Even though the first day of school is August 18, we know that our teachers and staff need to report to school weeks before that date.

At Austin ISD, we are actively preparing for the 2020-21 school year and the return of students and staff on Aug. 18.

Dear Austin ISD student,


We hope you are doing well and staying healthy.

Did you know that today is El Dia Del Niño (Children's Day)?

It's time to complete your choice sheets for the 2020-2021 school year!  For all incoming 6th, 7th, and 8th graders, young leaders have the opportunity to voice which classes they'd like to participate in for the upcoming school year.  This ownership on your learning creates an academic passport

At this week’s Business Professionals of America State Leadership Conference in Dallas, eight out of nine Sadler Means students placed on stage. Four will be heading to the National Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. in May.
