Travis Unified School District is pleased to announce that we have received a DoDEA (Department of Defense Educational Activity) grant. This is a five year grant with 2017-18 being the planning year and Years 2-5 for implementation. With a focus on college and career readiness, this grant intends to provide students and families with support and activities to help students develop a 10-year plan for college/career readiness. Here are the major goals:
- Increase the number of military dependent students completing courses required for college admission with a grade of C or better
- Use Naviance, a college and career planning program, and college entrance exams to help students map out plans for their future
- Enhance the JROTC program at the high school through virtual learning and the use of computer technology
- Expand student horizons through extracurricular activities where students experience elements of various careers. Provide work-based learning experiences for high school students.
Watch for updates as we start the implementation plan in 2018-19. If you would like more information, contact Connie Green at 707.437.4604, ext. 1202 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
