2017-18 Promise High Schools Selection Criteria

Dallas County Community College District is committed to equity in outcomes. Based on the commitment that has been demonstrated in leadership and results for its Early College and Collegiate Academy sites, DCCCD desired to add value for ALL students and provide a clear pathway to college completion that removes the key barrier to college for many Dallas County families (cost).

Invited campuses are either a TEA-approved 2017-18 Early College High school that is co-sponsored by a DCCCD College or be a co-sponsor of a collegiate academy that has produced graduates with a degree from a DCCCD college by Spring 2017.
