Crockett High School Becomes A Legacy of Giving School
The mission of A Legacy of Giving is to empower children through philanthropy education and youth philanthropy programs to become more engaged in improving their communities and world.

We believe empowering children through philanthropy education to become more engaged in improving their communities and world will grow a generation of givers. If we help children learn to be compassionate at their earliest ages, they will continue to be engaged in their communities and offer their gifts of time, talent and treasure as adults.

Supported by community leaders donating their time, talent and treasure, A Legacy of Giving is emerging as a critical piece of school curriculum.

Today, A Legacy of Giving provides philanthropy education, service learning and civic engagement in a school-based setting in both public and private schools in Central Texas with TEKS-compliant curricula (i.e. curricula meeting or exceeding all state and local public school standards).

In the future, A Legacy of Giving will expand its youth philanthropy program to engage children and their families in philanthropy through opportunities beyond classroom-based learning.

Attendance Rules and Grading Policy
Based on House Bill 5, students must maintain a 90% attendance rate in each of their classes for the year in order to receive credit. Students with 75%-89% attendance in classes must meet with the attendance committee in order to determine if the missed time can be made up via Twilight or Saturday School. Therefore, Community Service Hours will no longer be accepted.

If attendance drops below 75%, then the student can not receive credit and must repeat the course. Click on this news story for details.

The goal of GMS is to promote academic excellence and to provide an opportunity for outstanding minority students with significant financial need to reach their highest potential by:

•Reducing financial barriers for African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian Pacific Islander American and Hispanic American students with high academic and leadership promise who have significant financial need;
•Increasing the representation of these target groups in the disciplines of computer science, education, engineering, library science, mathematics, public health and the sciences, where these groups are severely underrepresented;
•Developing a diversified cadre of future leaders for America by facilitating successful completion of bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees; and
•Providing seamless support from undergraduate through doctoral programs, for students selected as Gates Millennium Scholars entering target disciplines.
The Gates Millennium Scholars Program, established in 1999, was initially funded by a $1 billion grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The GMS Scholarship Award Provides:

•Support for the cost of education by covering unmet need and self-help aid;
•Renewable awards for Gates Millennium Scholars maintaining satisfactory academic progress;
•Graduate school funding for continuing Gates Millennium Scholars in the areas of computer science, education, engineering, library science, mathematics, public health or science;
•Leadership development programs with distinctive personal, academic and professional growth opportunities.
