June 10, 2013 -- SAISD student Cristina Salais introduces Governor Rick Perry today as he prepares to sign House Bill 5 and other education reform bills into law. Salias, who will graduate from Edison High School in 2014 and is interning this summer with the City of San Antonio in Information Technology Services, is an example of the opportunities provided when school districts and higher education work together for career readiness. She participates in the Phoenix Middle College program, a partnership between SAISD, Alamo Colleges and Alamo Academies where our students take classes at St. Phillips College to earn both their high school diploma and up to 32 hours of college credit. This unique program provides the latest technological advances for learning a skilled trade in a demand occupation.
