Grand Prairie ISD recognizes that the transition after high school is a critical time for all students regardless of whether they plan to go to college, university, technical school, enter the military, or work.
For this reason, we are excited to support GPISD graduates as they transition from high school to their next stop their chosen post-secondary journey. Understanding that every graduate’s journey is unique, our team of college advisors, counselors and higher education partners are committed to providing support, resources and information and empowerment for graduates through the GPISD Beat the Heat summer program!
To “Beat the Heat” of Summer Melt, we are here to offer a full circle of support through text messaging, one-on-one virtual meetings, email, phone calls and social media to:
- Inform students of college-related tasks and deadlines that they may not be aware of.
- Remind graduates of time sensitive tasks and deadlines.
- Help graduates complete matriculation tasks like Dallas County Promise, financial aid, meningitis information, career exploration and/or guide them to the appropriate contacts.
One of our primary ways of communicating with graduates is through text messaging. The text messaging campaign will serve as a valuable resource for getting answers to questions that may come up, and to stay informed with information specific to your graduate’s plan (whether that be college, military, workforce, etc.).
