Parents: Talk to Your Child's School About Post-Secondary Readiness
This month, parents of most children in grades 3-9 will receive results from STAAR and End of Course exams that Texas students took this spring. Visit ismychildready.org to learn how these STAAR parent reports can be used to begin a conversation about where your child is on the path to post-secondary readiness, and how your family and the school can join forces to ensure the best outcomes for your child.
How You Can Help
Houston A+ Challenge invites you to join our movement to help Houston's public schools transform into places where every student graduates high school ready to achieve post-secondary success. Read more.
Houston A+ Challenge serves as a catalyst for change in the public schools that educate nine of every ten children in our region, teaming with principals and teachers in targeted schools to ensure that every student is prepared for post-secondary success.
We are committed to ensuring that all public school students, no matter what their background, graduate high school prepared to achieve their maximum potential for success in college, career and civic life.
These students are educated by thousands of A+- trained administrators and teachers in schools and classrooms throughout Houston, each provided with the training and tools necessary to ensure that these students achieve.
Students, administrators, and teachers are supported by families that provide encouragement, and community leaders and benefactors who provide expertise and resources to make an excellent education possible for all students.
