    Greetings from our President:

    Welcome to the Association for Compensatory Educators of Texas (ACET) and thank you for visiting our website!  It is my privilege to serve as President of ACET, a trusted organization whose leadership has been committed to meeting the needs of at risk students since 1974.  During our conferences ACET provides opportunities for federal program professionals to learn from each other, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) staff, and experts in our field about EDGAR, compliance, federal programs, and all things ESSA. 

    Our ACET Executive Council is a dedicated and esteemed group of accomplished education professionals from throughout Texas who represent all aspects of federal programs.  I am proud to serve on an Executive Council that works hard in service of educators to ensure they are current on best practices, federal and state legislation and guidelines, and a resource for new and veteran federal program professionals.  I am very excited about the upcoming year and the opportunity to continue to learn and grow within the organization. 

    I would also like to personally invite you to learn more about ACET by participating in and volunteering at our spring or fall conference. As educators, we are all life-long learners. Please consider expanding your role in ACET by joining a committee. It is a great way to grow professionally and network with some of the nicest and most knowledgeable federal program professionals from across the state.  To learn more about our organization, follow us on Twitter @ACETXorg or like us on Facebook @ACET.  

    I look forward to working for you this year and hope to see you in San Marcos at our spring 2020 conference. If you are a current or former ACET member, presenter, or sponsor - thank you for your part in promoting success among at risk students and families. Together we can achieve more!

    Sharon Sanchez
    ACET President

    Greetings from our Executive Director:

    Greetings ACET Members!

    I was so excited that so many of you attended the October conference in San Antonio.  We had 485 members registered and a large number of you also attended the Pre-conference Academy.  

    The sessions were great and I am sure you learned a great deal from each one.  Please remember that you can download the handouts from the sessions from the ACET website.  If there is not a presentation for a session you attended, it is because that presenter did not give us a presentation to post.  These presentations will be up on the site for one year and then they are removed.

    We are looking forward to our Spring conference in San Marcos in April.  We hope to see you and many others at that conference.   Shortly,  Mark Ybarra, President-Elect, and his program planning committee will begin working on what we know will be another great conference.  If you have any topic you would like to see included, email me or Mark and let us know so it can be considered.

    Be looking for a new look for the ACET Website.  We are in the process of refreshing our site and we hope you will enjoy the new look.  There will also be a new registration protocol for the Spring conference.  It will look more like the protocols you use when ordering on-line.  Everything should go live the middle of January. 

    Registration for the Spring conference will open on January 31st.  That is when the housing will also open.  The call for proposals will be on the site in early January so be sure to watch for that if you are interested in presenting. 

    I will be looking forward to seeing you at the Spring Conference!

    Shirley Coleman,
    Executive Director
