Board president Stipeche’s broadcast answers questions on new high school pathways

Board of Trustees President Juliet Stipeche’s premiere broadcast on HISD-TV is streaming online, and she tackles the complex and looming issue of major changes to high school, starting with this year’s eighth-graders who are now planning their educational pathways.

Stipeche interviews Lupita Hinojosa and Mark White about what HISD is doing to implement the package of state education legislation known as House Bill 5.

Among the topics are creating personal graduation plans that include “endorsements” – specialized areas of study, such as business, arts, and STEM, that will prepare students for higher education and the workforce.
