FWISD To Kick Off a Week of Activities and Programing Focusing on Success After High School

Fort Worth ISD is encouraging all campuses to offer students and their families activities and programming focused on success after high school, not only college but also careers, and military service during Education: Go Get It Week, Sept. 12-16.

Education: Go Get It Week, also known as Generation TX Week, is a time to highlight the benefits of post-secondary education and provide information on how to prepare academically and financially, and how to access available resources and services. Texas House Bill 2909 requires each school district to designate one week per academic year as Generation TX Week.

FWISD's Education: Go Get It Week culminates with the District's annual College Night, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 19. More than 250 colleges, universities, and military branches from across the United States are expected to participate and discuss college, career, and military options with attendees. For more details, visit www.fwisd.org/college or call 817-814-1564.

The District's Student Support Services Division has prepared a suggested list of activities and programs for campuses to consider, Sept. 12-16:
