A Principal on Supporting Teachers for Student College Readiness – Podcast Episode 128 | Classnotes Podcast Episode 128
Classnotes Podcast (September 6, 2013) School transformation doesn’t just happen by decree from a superintendent or principal. Systems and support for teachers and other staff must be deliberate and sustainable. This is how, the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo school district has become a leader in connecting high school students to college. For example, at the district’s College, Career & Technology Academy, two-thirds of high school students last year were in college credit-bearing classes. And the school is aiming for 100 percent.
In this third and final part of our interview, Linda Carrillo, CCTA principal, describes types of college credit students are earning, teacher support and how the teachers feel about what they are doing. Linda is interviewed by Hector Bojorquez, an IDRA education associate.
