Educators from across the US learning from PSJA ISD

Local News

PHARR, Texas – Over 500 educators from across the country are in the Rio Grande Valley. They are learning about PSJA ISD programs that have increased student success and decreased drop out rates. During a two-day conference, districts around the U.S. will learn skills on how to replicate PSJA ISD programs that have proven to prepare students for life after high school.

Dr. Jorge L. Arredondo, PSJA ISD Superintendent, “The students are now able to get their dual credit courses. Meaning they get high school courses as well as college courses. In many cases, they finish with an Associate Degree. They save time and money as they get ready to go into a college education.”

The conference aims to close gaps and provide teachers with necessary tools to help more students graduate.
