Real Estate P-TECH Students at Akins ECHS Visit Local AISD Construction Site

अकिंस अर्ली कॉलेज हाई स्कूल P-TECH students in the Real Estate pathway recently had an exciting opportunity to attend an active Austin ISD construction site at Marshall Middle School. This event was facilitated in partnership with AISD’s own internal real estate department, where students met with the architect, engineering staff, construction management leadership, and more. Students asked insightful questions about school design, future expansion plans, urban school planning, and community input on school design. APIE has been supporting P-TECH students at Akins ECHS for the past three years, with funding support from the ग्रेटर टेक्सास फाउंडेशन. We’re excited that our students experienced this on-site, work-based learning opportunity, where they could visualize themselves as working professionals in the real estate field.

2021 – 2022 Annual Program Evaluation Published Online

Our annual program evaluation for the 2021-2022 school year is live! APIE’s Math Classroom Coaching, College Readiness, GEAR UP, and P-TECH programs served approximately 2,838 students, and the Mentoring Program recruited and trained 106 mentors to support students through regular mentoring relationships. In addition to providing planned programming, APIE staff and volunteers expanded services to include generalized tutoring in all subject areas for students struggling academically due to circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many APIE program participants experienced positive outcomes on the TSIA and outperformed students in matched comparison groups. Check out the full 2021-2022 Program Evaluation to learn more!
