Texas Graduation Requirements and Opportunities – Training Kit

This kit is the fourth in a set of four developed from the Annual IDRA La Semana del Niño Parent Institute in 2017 for use in training and technical assistance for school districts to strengthen family engagement. See overview article, Texas Graduation Requirements and Opportunities – IDRA’s New Parent Involvement Tool for School Districts, by Aurelio M. Montemayor, M.Ed.

This kit is based on a presentation on graduation requirements. While this lesson focuses on Texas policy, the steps can be adapted to other states.
