LEWISVILLE, Texas – October 1, 2019 – More than 12,000 Texas students across 60 ResponsiveEd® public charter schools participated in this year’s Character Day. The worldwide initiative, organized by Let it Ripple, took place September 27-28 to recognize the importance of character development from different perspectives. This year, the theme focused on how technology enhances and hinders our character development.

ResponsiveEd students from every grade level took part in character-building activities such as theatrical performances, neighborhood trash clean-ups, citizenship lessons, class service projects, posters design, poem writing, door decorating, canned-food drives, and watching Character Day videos followed by discussion.

“We stress the importance of character development every day at our campuses, so to take part in an event dedicated to having good character falls right in line with our mission to cultivate moral and academic excellence,” says ResponsiveEd Counseling Support Coordinator Don Moore. “To see participation from such a large segment of our students across the state means that our campuses understand the value of having good character along with making good grades.”   

Let it Ripple is the film company that helped begin Character Day in 2014. Its mission is to use film, technology, discussion materials, and events to engage a 21st-century audience in conversation and action around complicated subjects that are shaping our lives. This is the second year in a row that ResponsiveEd schools have participated in the event along with more than four million people across 200,000 groups in all 50 states and 125 countries around the world.

ARLINGTON, Texas, Sept. 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — This week, 25 students at Premier High School – Arlington, a ResponsiveEd® public charter school, committed to pursuing careers in electrical services.  At a pre-apprenticeship induction ceremony, the inaugural class was welcomed into the partnership program between the school’s Career & Technical Education Program and TRIO Electric.

“One of our purposes at TRIO Electric is improving lives, and this is one of the ways we do that,” says TRIO Electric President and CEO Beau Pollock. “We win as a company because we need people and the students win because of the opportunity to earn money and grow after graduation.”

An on-site fabrication lab has been assembled on campus where students will earn high school credits while training for two years alongside TRIO’s electrical service professionals. The program is intended to help dedicated students come away with the experience needed to begin a career as an electrician right after graduation.

“TRIO Electric is very progressive in working toward solving the skilled laborer shortage in this country,” says Premier High School Superintendent Dina Acevedo. “This partnership is perfect for our students that are looking to come out of high school and begin a career with a skill set that is in high demand.”

Since 1999, Premier High Schools® have been providing hope for students looking for an alternative to a traditional direct-teach educational environment.  Comprised of more than 35 campuses within the ResponsiveEd public charter system, this unique tuition-free school model is designed for credit recovery and early graduation for students who thrive in smaller, independent learning environments that emphasize the use of technology and one-on-one teacher interactions.
