Preparing for College

Parents & Students:

With the costs of college going up and up, it is never to soon to start academic and financial planning.  In my personal  and professional opinion, it is a must to start now if you haven't already.  The Texas initiative http://www.achievetexas.org/ will inform you of the measures being taken by the state and school districts to encourage and facilitate action on the part of the student in preparation for high school, college and the workforce. www.texasgearup.org and www.GenTx.org
Your 8th grade student will be involved in activities that follow the Achieve Texas guidelines.  Please don't hesitate to contact me bhardy@nisdtx.org or 817-215-0604 for any questions you may have about your child's academic or emotional growth.  I will gladly spend as much time as you need to assist with your child's planning.
