What Are Community Learning Spaces?
Austin ISD defines a Community Learning Space as a place in the community where a student’s legal guardian takes the student to receive in-person supervision and access to the digital resources and other learning supports.
Community Learning Spaces are facilitated by community organizations, groups of parents, faith-based organizations, or public entities that provide in-person support to students during times of remote off-campus instruction. You may hear the term “learning pod” to refer to a similar concept; however, we prefer Community Learning Space because it represents the broad spectrum of ways our community has stepped up to support our students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
*Community Learning Spaces are not monitored or managed by Austin ISD staff*
*Community Learning Space programs are not run, sponsored or endorsed by AISD*
