The P16Plus Council of Greater Bexar County, an SA2020 Lead Partner in Education, and various city leaders and partners from our school districts and nonprofits celebrated the first-ever national Attendance Awareness Month last Fall. Since the launch, we have partnered with more than 30 partners and 5 ISDs who are working to make daily school attendance a priority in our community. P16Plus continues to communicate the importance of attendance in Pre-K through 12th grade and is working with schools and nonprofit organizations to focus on improving attendance habits for chronic non-attending students (those missing 10% or more of expected school days – excused or unexcused).

The mission of Generation TX San Antonio is to make San Antonio a college-going and career-ready community in one generation. The group is composed of GenTXperts, students who support the mission in our local high schools and proactively engage in creating a dynamic college-going culture in their schools. We utilize targeted community events and social media to share the value of higher education and preparedness for a future in the workforce.
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math, an educational pathway designed to prepare our students for careers in these fields, shown to be abundant and very relevant to our economy in the 21st century.
P16Plus is dedicated to improving educational outcomes for students from cradle to career. One of our focuses is in the area of College and Career Readiness, where we aim to prepare students for post-secondary education and workforce opportunities. Our initiatives are critical because by 2018, 63% of our jobs will require post-secondary education, yet less than 50% of graduating high school seniors enroll in college following graduation. The San Antonio Youth Commission is a group of city-council appointed youth whose mission is to provide an outlet for the youth to share their voice through advocacy, community service, and social media. They team up with Generation TX San Antonio, a student-led program designed to make SA a college-going and career-ready culture in one generation. We also collaborate with Education Service Center 20 in order to spread the word on House Bill 5 and new statewide graduation requirements, preparing our students for jobs in the workforce.
