Dallas ISD parents who attended the Family Literacy Project workshops that promoted college awareness took a trip to Southern Methodist University for an up-close tour of the campus.
The Latino Family Literacy Project is a series of workshops initiated by the Office of Family & Community Engagement. The purpose of the workshops is to increase college awareness and to help parents and students became exposed to the opportunities of schools (Magnets, Choice and Collegiate Academies) that Dallas ISD currently offers.
The sessions were held at Zan Wesley Holmes Middle School, Piedmont GLOBAL Academy and W.W. Samuell High School. Each family that completed the workshop received an invitation to tour and participate in a STEM presentation by Dario Villarreal, a distinguished director of NeuroMechatronics at Southern Methodist University.
