CALALLEN, TEXAS (Dec. 3, 2012) — Texas School Business magazine announced that Calallen ISD’s Northwest Center for Advanced Studies was one of 12 initiatives to be honored in the magazine’s Sixth Annual Bragging Rights 2012-2013 special issue. Bragging Rights recognizes school districts that have implemented programs that are bettering the lives of students, schools and communities. The special issue, which accepts nominations and selects 12 stories to highlight, was distributed to more than 8,000 readers with a vested interest in Texas public education. With pass-along readership, this annual issue will reach at least 25,000 readers.
Calallen ISD, in partnership with Del Mar College and the Craft Training Center, provides opportunities for students to attend dual enrollment classes. Students are taught by professors who come to the campus for morning classes, starting at 7:30 a.m. Numerous courses are offered to students who can earn college credits. Credits will transfer to any state college or university in Texas. The program is open to all students who meet college-entry requirements, with courses offered at a reduced rate.
Since 1954, Texas School Business has served as the independent voice for public education in Texas. The magazine, which is distributed 10 times a year, is read by educators and school administrators across Texas. To read Bragging Rights online, visit www.texasschoolbusiness.com.
