Advocacy for Hispanic Students in Howard County
CONEXIONES has been an advocate for changes in policies, practices and personnel of the Howard County Public School System, that improve the performance and educational outcomes for Hispanic students. These efforts directly resulted in the establishment of the Hispanic Achievement Specialist position within the HCPSS and the addition of Hispanic Achievement Liaisons in all schools with a substantial Hispanic population. This approach promises to serve as a national model.
Conexiones Presents to the Board of Education
On December 3, 2012, Feli Solá-Carter, President of Conexiones, presented the goals of Conexiones for School Year 2012-2013. Also present were Conexiones Board Members, Ted Martinez, Mike Muñoz and Maryann Maher. See text of her remarks...
We support our mission by providing assistance and support to encourage students to complete high school, consider higher education opportunities and to be successful in their career choices.
On October 13, 2012, friends of Conexiones gathered for "A Celebration of Hispanic Youth in Howard County."
On May 16, 2012, nine schools (Middle and High) participated with a total of 200 students for a fun filled day of soccer, football, frisbees, table games, face painting, and tug-of-war! I am proud to report that Wilde Lake High School won the tug-of-war game 4 times in a row! The weather was picture perfect!
In order to nurture a positive ethnic identity and strengthen a sense of belonging, we support Hispanic youth clubs organized within the Howard County Public School System (HCPSS). These clubs build community, celebrate Hispanic heritage, foster academic achievement, and provide leadership experiences.
