We are currently trying to fund the development of a student portal to support our college advising efforts, which will include appropriate college and financial aid information.
In addition, we are raising funds to bring back our ASP Academic Signing Day event to celebrate the accomplishments of all our Dallas area students while encouraging underclassmen to dream big. While budget constraints have limited us to celebrating these on a campus level, we believe that bringing together 17 DallasISD high schools for one event will allow to us to show students that it doesn't matter where in Dallas you come from, college is a real and attainable goal for all DallasISD students.
Lastly, we would like to bring back our Symposium for Multicultural Recruitment, a premier conference for college admissions officers and college counselors to receive professional development in recruiting first-generation and minority students, educating Dallas area high school counselors in how to effectively teach students to be strong college applicants, and lastly, introducing our high school students to the very admissions officers who will be reading their applications and allowing them to receive valuable advice in the college application process. This conference is designed to help level the playing field for students who come from less resourced backgrounds and schools.
