College Preparatory Course ESC-20

College Preparatory Course ESC-20 House Bill 5 created an opportunity for Alamo Colleges, UTSA, TAMUSA, and several independent school districts within ESC-20, to build a partnership. Together, we have designed the College Preparatory courses for English and Math, which is offered to 12th grade students. In the partnership, professors and K-12 educators collaborated to determine standards, assessments, resources, and professional development to offer the College Preparatory courses in the fall of 2014. If you are interested in building a partnership with Alamo Colleges, UTSA, and TAMUSA, please use the following process:
  1. Download Memorandum of Understanding, add your district logo, then sign and return it to Kristi Booth KBooth@alamo.edu. Ms. Booth will route the MOU through the Alamo Colleges, to TAMUSA, then to UTSA, and back to Alamo Colleges, who will return a fully executed document to you.
     2. Download the syllabus for College Preparatory English and College Preparatory Math, to guide instruction. (Be sure to attend professional development offered through Connect20.)
    3. Partnership discussions will take place quarterly each school year. Please choose district representation for the following partnership teams:
    1. Operational Team = District Level Decision Maker to negotiate MOU and partnership agreements
    2. English Vertical Alignment Team = District or Campus English content specialist to maintain focus on professional development, calibration, and curriculum/instruction collaboration with secondary and postsecondary faculty
    3. Math Vertical Alignment Team = District or Campus Math content specialist to maintain focus on professional development, calibration, and curriculum/instruction collaboration with secondary and postsecondary faculty

We want to ensure we have current contacts for all College Prep teams so we communicate updates effectively. Please use this survey to update your district's College Prep contacts.
