Canutillo ISD to Participate in College Signing Day
Posted on 04/19/2016
Superintendent of schools Dr. Pedro Galaviz challenges all CISD staff, students and teachers to wear their favorite college gear on Tuesday, April 26, 2016. Using the hashtags #ReachHigher and #CISDReachesHigher, upload your photos to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Tag @CanutilloISD for sharing.

"This initiative, College Signing Day, is an excellent way for CISD to show solidarity as a district and to share our stories with the nation," Galaviz said. "The CISD Vision Statement says our graduates will be ready to excel in college, their careers, their community and in life – let's share these stories."

Reach Higher, an initiative from First Lady Michelle Obama, is centered around providing encouragement and activating educators, counselors and other adults to help young people see college as an option, whether at a traditional 4-year college, a 2-year community college or through an industry-recognized training program. Reach Higher focuses on four components: college affordability, exposing students to college, academic and summer planning, and supporting school counselors.​
Created as part of the First Lady’s Reach Higher initiative, this movement is a way for educators, counselors and parents to encourage those heading to college, but as part of Better Make Room it’s also a way for students to inspire and encourage others, too.​
