Austin ISD granted three early college high schools

Thursday, April 27, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Next year three Austin Independent School District high schools – Crockett, Eastside Memorial and Lanier – will be early college high schools, meaning students that attend those campuses can earn up to 60 hours of credit and the opportunity to earn an associate’s degree. The Texas Education Agency gave the OK for the three schools to participate in the partnership with Austin Community College, and the schools will each have a year to implement the plan. LBJ, Reagan and Travis high schools already went through that process, and were approved to continue on with the program.
