LOCAL EFFORTS

  • Austin Community College works with area school districts to create stronger connections between high school and college. ACC Tech, Early College Start, and Early College High School ease the transition to post-secondary education by providing opportunities for high school students to complete college credit while still in high school
  • Pathways of Promise (POP) is an initiative designed to strengthen career and math pathways to help students succeed in college and careers. By partnering with school districts and colleges, E3 Alliance is working to place minority and low-income students in Algebra I by 8th grade, increasing their chances of earning a post-secondary degree. E3 plans to expand POP in the region through 2018.
  • Students who attend school regularly and who do not change schools during the school year are more likely to graduate on time. “Missing School Matters” is a partnership of multiple partners focused on improving school attendance. The goal is to increase attendance by an average of three school days per student. The State of Texas funds schools based their Average Daily Attendance, so this increase in attendance would increase state funding to Central Texas schools by $34 million.
