“Generation TX Week”
Fort Bend ISD encourages students and parents to focus on planning for life after graduation during “Generation TX Week” from now to December 2. A webpage with helpful links, as well as a course selection calendar for the 2012-2013 school year, can be found on the FBISD website at www.fortbendisd.com/generationtexas/.
This statewide, grassroots movement is focused on creating a culture of college and career readiness leading to the most successful generation in Texas history. The District is also focused on helping students and parents by offering special programs, such as our annual Community Conference, which featured a session on college readiness, as well as our College Nights, Career Days, SAT prep classes and various other campus-based programs and events.
“Generation TX” is the new name for the previous higher education campaign entitled “Education: Go Get It.” The campaign is aimed at increasing awareness and building support for the new college and career readiness standards, preparing students for all postsecondary career options, and clarifying the application process for admissions and financial aid. Helpful information on higher education options, college admissions testing, and financial aid deadlines are available on the College for All Texans website at www.collegeforalltexans.com, and the Generation TX website at http://gentx.org/. Counselors on each campus also have a variety of college readiness information for students and parents.
More information on college and career readiness can be found on the FBISD website at www.fortbendisd.com.
