• Road To College and Career

    Welcome to RTCC Counselors' Corner!

    District Closure for COVID-19:

    During this unprecedented time in our society, Uplift has determined for the safety and wellbeing of our scholars, their families, faculty and staff that our campuses will be closed indefinitely.  Please be aware that your RTCC Team is working for you during our transition. We will respond to emails as soon as possible during the typical work week.

    Academic Counselors are awaiting guidance from TEA and the Uplift CMO to determine how credit recovery will occur for the remainder of the year. We will communicate new test dates and credit recovery procedures as soon as they become available. Please email your counselor with any questions or concerns.

    Update 3/24/2020 - DP and AP Testing

    • DP Exams (12th Grade):  The IBO is canceling the May, 2020 examination session; there will be no external DP exams this year.  The attached letter was sent to schools for distribution to families today.  It states that students “will be awarded a Diploma or a Course Certificate which reflects their standard of work. This is based on student’s coursework and the established assessment expertise, rigor, and quality control already built into the programmes.”  We don’t know exactly what this means yet and don’t want to speculate; more specific information will be released this week and we will communicate it in our next update. 
    • AP Exams (9th – 12th Grade):  College Board has announced changes that will affect all AP Classes. Specifically:
      • Traditional face-to-face AP exam administrations will not take place this year.  For the 2019–20 exam administration only, students can take a 45-minute online exam at home.
      • For each AP subject, there will be 2 different testing dates. The full exam schedule, specific free-response question types that will be on each AP Exam, and additional testing details will be available by April 3.
      • Beginning on Wednesday, March 25, students and schools will have access to free, live AP review lessons, delivered by AP teachers from across the country on the College Board’s website. The lessons will focus on reviewing the skills and concepts from the first 75% of the course.

    A note about homework:

    Many scholars are struggling with low grades and a large majority of those students would not be failing if they would turn in their work.  Parents, please check PowerSchool and help remind your children to turn in all their assignments!  This can keep them from failing, or change a B to an A. It is a very important step in maintaining a healthy GPA (Grade-Point Average).  

    I am aware, as I have a son that does not believe in homework, that scholars can get busy and prioritize other things over school.  However, as I told my son, in all jobs, even ones you love, there will be times you have to do something you prefer not to in order to get that paycheck! Homework is there to reinforce what scholars learn in school and to meet state requirements. Please stay in contact with your child's Teacher or Academic Counselor when you see missing assignments or low grades.  

    We appreciate your partnership as we collectively encourage your scholars to the finish line!
