**Senior Salute is a special LASA tradition for graduating LASA seniors. Every year, PFLASA hosts Senior Salute the night before the official LASA graduation. Seniors receive their magnet endorsements from the administration, senior students perform a skit about life at LASA, the faculty give book awards and typically make a video for the students, and the seniors are given a memory book that contains each senior’s picture, quote and future plans. It's a very LASA-esque event and the seniors run the whole event. This event is for immediate family only. Dress is Dressy Casual (e.g. Pants, Ties, Dresses, etc). Typically, the event is 2 1/2 to 3 hours, not including the time that students need to be there early to line up.

***Graduation 2023: The district schedules all AISD graduations. Graduation is typically 2 hours after it starts. https://www.austinisd.org/graduation; There are no tickets required, no RSVP, guest number is not limited. Burger Activity Center is an indoor facility.

****Project Graduation - all night lock-in for graduates only; Agreement that must be signed and Tickets will be available on the PFLASA website mid-May.

DIPLOMAS & FINAL TRANSCRIPTS

Seniors will receive a diploma cover at graduation, not the actual diploma. Diplomas will be available for pick up from the LASA main office over the summer. The LASA main office is open during the summer from 9-3, Mon-Th and we are closed the week of July 4th. Final transcripts will be processed over the summer. Remember once you graduate you will not have access to Naviance after graduation so ordering transcripts must be done through the Registrar’s office.

Cords are addressed by the supervisor of that program and will be handed out before graduation practice or at graduation practice.

BEFORE GRADUATION, SAVE YOUR GOOGLE DRIVE DATA FROM AUSTINISD

Seniors should transfer content on their AISD student account:

Login to the AISD Portal at portal.austinisd.org and open your Google Drive. Make sure you see your @stu.austinisd.org or @austinisd.org Google ID.

In a new tab, go to https://www.google.com/settings/takeout . Select the Google products that you wish to archive. You can use the ^ option next to the checkbox to select subsets of data from that product. Click Next.

You can try different settings, but leaving File type as .zip and Delivery method as email will have an email sent to your AISD email account when the archive is completed and ready to be downloaded. This could take several minutes, hours or days depending on how much you are archiving. Click Create Archive.

If your archive becomes ready while the window is open, you will be able to click the Download button to download the zipped archive to your computer. Clicking the link from the email notification will show you the archives you have created and download buttons for each. The zipped archive can be opened and uploaded to another Cloud service or stored on an external device.
