Ensuring that all students are career and college ready stands at the heart of the mission of Pasadena ISD. Our students have big dreams and we must help make their dreams come true.
Plans developed by the Pasadena ISD Strategic Planning Committee in 2012 and by the Future Facilities Committee in 20011 are on the verge of becoming reality. In the next few days, you will see bulldozers clearing land near the intersection of Genoa-Red Bluff and Beltway 8, the first phase of construction for the new Career and Technology High School. Scheduled for completion in 2014, the new campus will serve 1,700 students in six different career academies with dozens of pathways from which our students can choose. Most students who graduate from this campus will earn a high school diploma and career certifications. Some students may even earn an associate’s degree from San Jacinto College by the time they complete the 12th grade.
In the end, the new campus will meet the needs of a growing number of our students while meeting the work force needs of area businesses and industries.
I love it when a plan comes together and this plan will be an incredible opportunity for our community.
