High School College Access Action Teams

We believe in the power of campus-based teams using their power, influence, resources, and diverse expertise to strengthen the college and career ready culture for all students. Participating Dallas County Promise high schools each have campus action teams that meet monthly with their Promise staff point person.

The four Promise Learning Community meetings provide opportunities for college access action teams to troubleshoot, plan, and learn from one another. Teams will register to attend one of the two dates offered each month. All meetings will take place from 9am-12pm and links to register will be shared with campus leads. 

2019-2020 Meeting Dates:

  • September 4 & 11, 2019
    November 5 & 7, 2019
  • February 4 & 6, 2020
    April 21 & 23, 2020

The Promise Student Challenge

Student leaders from Promise high schools will have an opportunity to participate in an eight-week Promise Challenge, which will provide students an opportunity to design solutions to student-identified challenges as they navigate high school and prepare for life after high school.

For the 2018-2019 year, a total of ten high schools participated in the Promise Student Challenge. All teams convened at Southern Methodist University on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 to present their solutions and discuss opportunities with a panel of leaders from across the DFW region. Click here to watch their presentations at the 2019 Promise Student Challenge Closing Celebration.
