JOIN THE "REACH OUT TO DROPOUTS" WALK
Mayor Bill and Andrea White invite you to participate in the 6th annual "Reach Out to Dropouts" walk. The event is part of the citywide initiative "Expectation Graduation," a collaborative effort founded by Houston Independent School District, Houston A+ Challenge, and the City of Houston. The walk has brought thousands of students back to class to continue their educations and now is being replicated in districts and cities across Texas.
This year, participating Houston-area school districts include: Aldine, Alief, Channelview, Cleveland, Dickinson, Fort Bend, Galena Park, Goose Creek Consolidated, Houston, Klein, La Marque, Lamar Consolidated, North Forest, Sheldon, Spring, Spring Branch and Stafford.
To volunteer for the Walk in your community visit the Expectation Graduation website.
