Is it really bragging when someone else does it for you?
Port Neches-Groves High School's Practicum in Education and Training, more commonly known as the Peer Tutor program, was recently recognized in the Texas School Business' 15th Annual Bragging Rights edition.
Twelve districts across the state were featured for their outstanding programs. Bragging Rights, which calls for nominations and is published every December, recognizes school districts that have implemented programs that are bettering the lives of Texas’ students, schools and communities.
This year’s 12 honored districts include:
Athens ISD, Middle School Momentum
Burkburnett ISD, 18+ Transition Program
Flour Bluff ISD, Sports Information & Marketing
Humble ISD, Students Helping Veterans: Big Heroes, Tiny Homes
Longview ISD, Lobo Live
Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD, Migrant Education Program
Sunray Collegiate ISD, One Vote Responsible for Creating a Major Educational Shift in a Rural District
Weatherford ISD, Behavior, Emotional, Social Support Team
Willis ISD, Wildcat Resource Center
“School districts across Texas sent in their nominations this year, and each one deserves to be noticed,” says Texas School Business Editorial Director Dacia Rivers. “It’s our hope that the 12 districts we chose inspire others to follow in their footsteps. The mission of Texas School Business is to share the good news happening in Texas public schools, and there’s never a shortage of news-worthy school programs for us to cover.”
For 47 years, Texas School Business has served as the news magazine for public education in Texas. Since 2014, it has been produced by the Texas Association of School Administrators (www.tasanet.org). To read the 15th AnnualBragging Rights issue online, CLICK HERE.
