BISD reaching out to drop out students through telethon
BISD counselors, principals and staff manned the phones Wednesday.
The district is reaching out to dropout students in a telethon they call
"Mission Possible: Expectation Graduation." the district's superintendent calls it a last ditch effort to get students back in school.
More than 140 students did not return to school and BISD wants them back. Counselors calling offered different options to complete high school or earn a GED and get students enrolled again.
The superintendent says he wants 100 percent graduation, so much so, he even made a house call. He says the effort isn't about the district getting more funding for more students, it's about helping kids succeed in life.
The supervisor of guidance and counseling also tells us she is proud of last year's 95 percent graduation rate. But this year they want every student to walk across the stage.
