From Missouri to China, Dallas ISD’s P-TECH program hosted educational leaders from across the globe.
Dallas ISD’s P-TECH program offers students to earn up to 60 hours of college credit, for free, while they’re in high school. Students benefit as they gain real-world experience through industry partners and earn an associate degree by the end of their high school career. There are 18 P-TECHs in Dallas ISD, which is the most any school district has in the world.
“The great work we are doing in Dallas ISD is not only getting attention here in the United States, but also across the world,” Assistant Superintendent Usamah Rodgers said. “We are proud to showcase our district and discuss the great things happening every day here in Dallas ISD.”
The Jiangsu International Forum for School Principals, which is composed of 30 principals from across China, visited Hillcrest High School’s E-TECH on Nov. 7 to understand how Dallas ISD has scaled the program.
On Nov. 4, a group of school district leaders from the Kansas City metropolitan area visited the Conrad High School H-TECH to learn about Dallas ISD’s successful implementation of the program. The Kansas City-area principals also heard from district leaders about Dallas ISD’s other fantastic choice programs and initiatives.
Students interested in attending a Dallas ISD P-TECH can apply here, the deadline is Jan. 31.
