“Each year we try to give information that is new from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and TEA to help the school districts and build partnerships,” Durrett said. “The response has been excellent. We have great turnout. We hear ideas on how we can better serve those schools.”
Dr. Christine Hubbard, president of the North Texas Community College Consortium, addressed CCMR (College, Career and Military Reediness) and CTE (Career Technical Education) during the general session.
Then, the school district representatives participated in breakout session for counselors, principals and superintendents on dual credit.
“I am extremely impressed with the quality work that our superintendents, principals and counselors are doing throughout the region,” said WC President Dr. Tod Allen Farmer. “Through their collective hard work and the hard work of thousands of dynamic teachers, our region of the great state of Texas is quickly becoming an education destination.”
