TEA Seeks Input on College, Career and Military Prep with Listening Tour
The Texas Education Agency announced 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 schools to career and college, and ensure all students are prepared for success.
According to a letter from Education Commissioner Mike Morath’s office, 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.
In addition, the organization 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.
The face-to-face parent meeting for Spring ISD parents and guardians will be from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 29 at the Region 4 Education Service Center, 7200 Northwest 100 Drive, Houston, TX 77092.
