Adult Education in Aldine ISD: Why the Family and Community University?

About This Session


This presentation tells the story of this new initiative in the Aldine school district in Houston, in how we build families’ capacity by addressing their needs and recognizing their expertise and potential.

What we'll cover:

Aldine ISD is located in the Northeast of Houston downtown. The district serves about 62,000 students on 84 campuses from PK – HS.

In 2021, the Family and Community Engagement department at Aldine ISD inaugurated a novel initiative to enhance our families’ proficiency. This project is titled The Family and Community University and is being executed in collaboration with various organizations and departments within our district. The prime objective of this project is to augment capacity and generate awareness of the community’s potential through education and leadership opportunities in four distinct categories.

  1. Academic Life,
  2. Well-Being and Social Interactions,
  3. Community, and
  4. Continuing Education.

Come and learn our story, how in one year, we have increased our enrollment by 200%+, and how parents are now taking leadership roles in our district.
