Share Your SXSWedu 2015 Stories!


Each year hundreds of educators gather to focus on education reform. College and career readiness (CCR) is often a key part of discussions, and critical partners share their success with others to further the CCR vision. 

This year, Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) and Jobs for the Future were among such partners. TXCCRN looks forward to bringing recaps of SXSWedu 2015 and welcomes the Network to participate! If you would like to share your SXSWedu 2015 experience, please contact Amy Williams, Senior Communications Officer, so that your story can be featured in the next TXCCRN Digest.
