University of Houston-Clear Lake’s College of Education received notification that its Success Through Education Programs, known as STEP, is one of six finalists for the Texas Higher Education Star Award. STEP is a collaborative effort between UH-Clear Lake, five school districts, and five community colleges designed to create opportunities for students to explore teaching as a profession and to prepare them to become certified teachers.
A nine-member selection committee of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board will make the final decision. The winner will be announced at the 16th Annual Star Awards Luncheon held in Austin in October.
UH-Clear Lake STEP partners include Goose Creek Consolidated Independent School District and Lee College, Galveston Independent School District and Galveston College, Galena Park Independent School District and San Jacinto-North Community College, Houston Independent School District and Houston Community College-Southeast, and Santa Fe Independent School District and San Jacinto-South Community College.
