Crockett Entrepreneurship Program
I am very proud to announce that Crockett High School, Covington Middle School, Bedichek Middle School and Cunningham Elementary School and Bazaarvoice Foundation have entered into a partnership to develop and implement a K-12 entrepreneur program. The desired outcome of this first in the nation collaborative is for a student to open a for-profit business or start a non-profit organization by the senior year in high school.
The program mission is to give students an opportunity to learn about the business world, effectively communicate, and fully develop an idea from inception to market. Students would also be exposed to the world of business, including meeting CEO’s of small companies, visiting start-up companies and learning how to raise capital to start a venture. Since 40% of the jobs will require workers to possess entrepreneurial skills by 2020, it is imperative that we provide our students with the means to compete in the global marketplace.
In order to prepare students, we will be creating many blended courses that will both prepare students for college and the world of business. We are in the process of forming two advisory boards to help shape the structure and curriculum of this program.
I hope that you can join us and provide your expertise, so we can create a model educational program that prepares students for the 21st century job market. If you are interested in being on an advisory board, please contact me at craig.shapiro@austinisd.org. If you want more information about Crockett and the program itself, please visit crocketths.org.
I look forward to working with you.

The date for the public announcement of the Entrepreneur Program is on April 30, 2015 at 10:00am in Crockett's Library.
