Parents, business owners, teachers and others are invited to attend the breakfast at 7:30 a.m on Nov. 12th and 13th. The breakfast is intended to start a community conversation and will feature an informational session. The event is at One AISD Center which is located at 241 Pine St. in the Jefferson Room.
