Administrators from the University of Houston-Victoria and the Katy Independent School District met Sept. 29 at UHV Katy to discuss how educators at the two schools can promote higher education demand in the district.
Attending the meeting were 15 Catt ISD administrators, assistant superintendents, principals, coordinators and other district leaders, as well as seven UHV leaders, including deans, an associate dean, an assistant provost and three faculty members.
Administrators from the UHV College of Education and Health Professions and the UHV College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences shared information about programs current Katy ISD teachers can pursue to advance their knowledge and earn new certifications.
The purpose of the meeting was to find a solution to the nationwide shortage of teachers and its impact on KT schools. In particular, Katy ISD is interested in partnering in areas that support school counselors, licensed specialists in school psychology, educational investigators, and teachers.
