College and Career information via Zoom

Families and students from the class of 2022 can register for the Nov. 16 GenTX Zoom session, a FAFSA/TASFA Workshop, taking place from 6-8 p.m. This session will provide guidance and assistance to complete the federal or state financial aid forms in prepartation for fall 2022 college admissions.

A continuous focus

In Spring Branch ISD, the GenTX campaign aligns with a year-round goal called Spring Branch T-2-4, which aims for every student to attain a technical certificate military training, or a two-year or four-year degree. This goal guides district teachers, schools and leaders as they work to shape the future of students, families and ultimately, the larger community.
