Students in the San Antonio and Judson Independent School Districts are on notice that warrants could be issued if they have been skipping school. Parents and kids have just two weeks to clear up any truancy issues before pick-up orders are activated.
Judge Rogelio Lopez of the Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace court said he sees hundreds of students from Judson and SAISD each year, and students missing school has a dramatic effect on the drop-out rate.
Together with the nation's leading expert on college and career readiness, Generation TX San Antonio and Dr. David Conley launched SA Ready, a website to offer teachers a targeted curriculum to prepare students for college.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Texas is expanding into the workplace with its Inspire U program which places ‘Littles’ with “Bigs’ on the job.
Inspire U isn’t new, but it is growing. Part of the SA2020 Initiative, the program enhances the little brother and sister experience by taking middle and high school students paring them with someone in the working world.
