IDEA Public Schools to provide technology to all students

IDEA Public Schools officials announced Monday their program providing personal technology devices, including computers or tablets, to all scholars enrolled at IDEA this year.

“Every IDEA scholar will be better prepared for college through the integration of one-to-one technology across our academic programs,” says Dolores Gonzalez, Chief Program Officer for IDEA Public Schools.

By providing each scholar with a personal technology option, IDEA Public School is reaffirming its commitment to academic rigor for all children to support their success to and through college.  

“We are committed to ensuring that our personalized technology program does not mean simply giving scholars a device, but rather ensuring continuity of rigorous learning opportunities despite the uncertainty of our current environment,”   Gonzalez added.

School officials say that their one-to-one personal technology creates “opportunities to meet the needs of every student with an intentional focus on structure and rigor to keep all scholars on track regardless of where the learning itself is taking place. Technology allows for uninterrupted learning, regardless of possible restrictions placed on in-person schooling.”  

Officials add that the program also allows schools to extend the learning window, create new opportunities and learning models for students, and boost the home to school connection.  

“One to one will ensure our scholars develop strong technology literacy and  increase the volume of reading and writing while fostering student agency and accountability for learning,” says Gonzalez.

IDEA Public Schools El Paso hosts discussion on State of Education in El Paso

IDEA Public Schools will celebrated its second year in El Paso and honor the support and achievements of  founding students, teachers, community supporters and school leadership at a Pan con Café brunch event.

Hosted by Ernesto Cantu, Executive Director of IDEA Schools El Paso, the event aimed to thank members of the community for their support.

At the luncheon, attendees heard from IDEA’s CEO and Founder, Tom Torkelson, and learn more about the IDEA Public Schools’ partnership with the El Paso community to serve students and families.

Richard A. Castro, Board Chair, Council on Regional Economic Expansion and Educational Development (CREEED), the region’s education advocacy and grantmaking organization dedicated to improving educational attainment for all students, issued the following statement on today’s education event:

“Preparing all students in our region to pursue and complete a college degree requires us to have a bold vision and to invest in more high quality seats, so students leave high school with the skills and training they need in higher education.

For over two decades, IDEA Public Schools has been working in communities across Texas with large Hispanic student populations like our own to increase educational attainment. Not only are students and their families benefiting from IDEA’s college for all motto – because 100 percent of their students go on to college after high school – but entire communities are shifting because they are recognizing the power that high academic standards, with robust students supports, can have on their education system in general.”

Eddie Rodriguez and other board members from the Council on Regional Economic Expansion and Educational Development (CREEED) were on hand to speak at the event.

Over the last two years, IDEA has opened three campuses in El Paso serving nearly 1,800 students. In 2020, IDEA will also open IDEA Horizon Vista with grades Pre-K through first and sixth grade.

This year, IDEA Public Schoolscelebrates 20 years of impact for students, families, staff and communities. Over the past 20 years, IDEA has grown to a family of 96 tuition-free public schools that serve more than 53,000 students across Texas and Louisiana.
