Welcome to ACET
Over the past 40 years, the Association for Compensatory Educators of Texas has helped thousands of educators provide programs for educationally disadvantaged children in Texas. ACET is committed to insure that all children from Texas reach the pinnacle of success.
Do you have a school where students and parents are really engaged? Do you have a program or process that leads to school improvement and student success? Do you have interventions that result in improvement in your graduation rates? Have you developed teacher training that leads to highly effective teachers and super effective classrooms? Have you had an audit that you passed with flying colors? Do you have processes in place that effectively meet and exceed compliance requirements. If you can say yes to these questions then ACET would like you to join our presenter corps for the upcoming Fall Conference. We have presenter opportunities in the following topic areas so step up to the plate and share what you do with your ACET colleagues.
We know you're proud of your schools and community. What better way to recognize the outstanding things you are doing in your department, schools and community than to share what you do at the ACET Fall Conference in Corpus Christi.

The ACET Fall Conference web pages will be activated beginning the week of July 14. The Fall Conference, scheduled for Wednesday, October 8 thru Friday, October 10, will be located at the Omni Bayfront Hotel. The city of Corpus Christi and the Omni Bayfront Hotel have played hosts to our fall conference on multiple occasions with the last conference there occurring in 2011. The Omni Bayfront is considered a downtown hotel but it is also just across the street from the seawall harbor area with restaurants and recreation activities. The conference is sure to be a great one and new directors will be happy to know that the New Director’s Academy will be back by popular demand! See you in Corpus Christi.
If you are one of the 20 ACET 2014 Scholarship winners this is the time to begin working with your college or university so that you can access your scholarship award for the fall semester. Two important items to remember are that in order for ACET to disburse a check to your institution of higher learning we must have an enrollment verification and the address of the department that works with your scholarship funding (usually the college’s financial aid office).
Thanks to the continued support of the ACET membership and our conference exhibitors, the ACET 2014 40th Anniversary Spring Conference was very well attended and an all-around success! All 20 regions in the state were well represented. In all, 650 members attended the conference and we had over 35 vendors with exhibit booths. We want to thank all of our members who attended this conference; we appreciate you continued support! A big “THANK YOU!” goes out to our concurrent session presenters who really did an awesome job! We also want to thank the TEA staff who was there in support of our member’s continuous improvement and professional learning efforts. Their knowledge base and leadership are integral in the continued, successful implementation of federal and state educational programs in schools throughout the state! Another big “THANK YOU!” goes out to Anita Villarreal for her coordination efforts to bring TEA staff to this conference. It’s so great that our members are able to hear the latest information about their federal and state programs directly from the source!
