This year I will be putting together a scholarship packet of all of our local scholarships so that it will be easier to access this information at one time.  When I get this information put together, I will let you know.

College and Career and Military Prep Listening Tour

The Texas Education Agency is excited to announce that the College and Career and Military Preparation (CCMP) Division will be conducting a statewide listening tour to receive parent feedback about the development of statewide goals and guidelines for a variety of programs that help connect high school to career and college, and ensure all students are prepared for success. In particular, the team will be looking for input on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Education, Work-Based Learning opportunities across grade levels, and the new state plan for the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act.

The TEA is looking to increase access to high-quality college and career preparatory programming for all students in Texas. In order to do this, the TEA is looking to gather feedback from regions across the state on what is working well and where additional support and guidance is needed. Parents are an essential voice in the development of education policy and practice and thus the TEA would like to invite parents to join a discussion with TEA staff around current and future educational experiences.

All meetings will be held at the Regional Education Service Center, located at 4300 S. Treadaway, Abilene, TX.

The face-to-face parent meeting in your region will be January 22nd,  from 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM.  A staff member will be at the front door to greet you.
