Endorsements have been around for a few years now, but they can still be a challenging concept to explain to students and their families. Fortunately, there are lots of resources on endorsements and academic planning to help you!
We’re excited to let you know that the Texas OnCourse Academy Reward Program will continue through the 2020–21 school year. This program awards up to $480 to professional school counselors who complete modules in the Academy.
We are super excited this week for the launch of Future Focused TX, a campaign to help ensure that our students stay on track for college enrollment despite the effects of COVID-19.
Future Focused TX was created for counselors by leaders in college and career advising and experts in deep student engagement. By signing on to the campaign, you’ll receive monthly digital packages of free, compelling, research-based content to help your students graduate from high school and successfully matriculate into college.
In 2018, 121,000 Texas students graduated without demonstrating college, career, or military readiness. That number will likely be even higher in 2020 due to the effects of COVID-19. Students have been unable to take the ACT, SAT, or TSIA, or they may not have finished college prep courses given the limited ability of these courses to deliver remote instruction.
