Recently, the Joint Subcommittees of the Austin City Council, AISD, and Travis
County School and Family Work Group released a report with some recommendations for these three governmental entities.
Those recommendations include using the CodeNext Project to promote
family-friendly housing; creating a Families with Children Commission; creating
a Homes and Schools Temporary Rental Assistance Program; developing a Long-Range Affordable Housing Plan; exploring partnerships for family-friend developments; enhancing safe routes to schools, parks and public libraries; identifying and promoting signature academic programs; investing in school facilities; enhancing communication between Campus Advisory Councils and the school communities they serve; and creating a strong marketing campaign for public schools.
