If you or someone you know is looking for support for basic needs like food, utilities, assistance with technology, academic resources to support at-home-learning, or resources to support students on a social-emotional level, we have provided links to community and online resources on our website.

The links are in three categories: Basic Needs (including internet service), Academic Resources, and Social-Emotional Resources. Please visit our website for more information.

Communities In Schools programs surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Our evidence-based approach, adapted to meet each community’s unique needs, is the basis for our success. Basic Needs: A student cannot focus in the classroom if he or she is hungry, cold or tired, or cannot see the board. Site coordinators see to it that students’ basic needs are met each day. Enrichment: Our Site coordinators enroll students in a wide variety of after school and summer programs, field trips and youth conferences to help them gain experience that is essential to meeting college and career goals. Academic Assistance: Our site coordinators work hard to ensure that students have the resources to progress academically. From providing students with tutors to finding and creating quiet spaces where students can study, we do whatever it takes to create an optimal learning environment for our students. Life Skills: Through one-on-one workshops, team building and guest speakers, we work with students to develop social-emotional learning, character education, social skills building, and conflict resolution. Behavioral Interventions: Many of our students face and overcome difficult obstacles in their lives. However, their survival skills aren’t always effective in the classroom or in the workplace. Our program teaches students positive ways to cope with anger, conflict resolution and other strategies to keep them focused on school. Family Engagement: Site coordinators connect families with counselors and social workers to make sure that home is a healthy, nurturing environment where a student can feel safe.

This adult education program provides each parent with a comprehensive math education starting with the parent’s current abilities and ending with standardized Algebra 1 competency. This education takes place in a familiar and safe environment, one-on-one by one of their peers that has been through the program. These parents then learn how to teach their children math from pre-kindergarten and onward. PC Math is a two generational program impacting both mother and children. Children are better prepared to enter Pre-K and parents are better prepared to get their High school diploma, GED, or enter college.

If you or someone you know is looking for support for basic needs like food, utilities, assistance with technology, academic resources to support at-home-learning, or resources to support students on a social-emotional level, we have provided links to community and online resources on our website.

The links are in three categories: Basic Needs (including internet service), Academic Resources, and Social-Emotional Resources. Please visit our website for more information.

Communities In Schools programs surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Our evidence-based approach, adapted to meet each community’s unique needs, is the basis for our success. Basic Needs: A student cannot focus in the classroom if he or she is hungry, cold or tired, or cannot see the board. Site coordinators see to it that students’ basic needs are met each day. Enrichment: Our Site coordinators enroll students in a wide variety of after school and summer programs, field trips and youth conferences to help them gain experience that is essential to meeting college and career goals. Academic Assistance: Our site coordinators work hard to ensure that students have the resources to progress academically. From providing students with tutors to finding and creating quiet spaces where students can study, we do whatever it takes to create an optimal learning environment for our students. Life Skills: Through one-on-one workshops, team building and guest speakers, we work with students to develop social-emotional learning, character education, social skills building, and conflict resolution. Behavioral Interventions: Many of our students face and overcome difficult obstacles in their lives. However, their survival skills aren’t always effective in the classroom or in the workplace. Our program teaches students positive ways to cope with anger, conflict resolution and other strategies to keep them focused on school. Family Engagement: Site coordinators connect families with counselors and social workers to make sure that home is a healthy, nurturing environment where a student can feel safe.
This program is for students at Poe Middle School.

2020 Fall Classes are available in four formats:

Option 1: Enhanced In-Person Plan - This is the traditional adult education class provided on site/in-person with enhanced SAISD safety precautions such as following CDC social distancing guidelines with a smaller teacher-student class ratio, increased hand sanitizer availability, increased frequency of sanitation of high touch areas etc.

Option 2: Enhanced In-Person & Remote Class Instruction Plan - This hybrid class combines in-person instruction with remote class instruction (join via Zoom) concurrently with increased safety and disinfecting measures as listed in Option 1.

Option 3: Scheduled remote Class Instruction Plan - Students don't come to any site to attend class. Instead, they join an online class via Zoom at a specified scheduled time to participate in remote/online learning. Enrollment, testing, and instruction would be offered 100% online. Students must meet technology requirements to participate in this plan. 

Option 4: Distance Learning Plan -Students use web-based program to access learning curriculum aligned to the Texas Workforce Commission Content Standards designed to fill-in learning gaps the students need to achieve educational goals. Students must meet technology requirements to participate in this plan. 

We have an open admissions policy for most classes that will provide you with the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills to be successful in today's technological and global economy. SAISD Adult and Community Education is proud to be a leader in innovation and student diversity.
