United ISD hosted a luncheon for business partners who participated in this year’s Teacher Externship Program. Coordinated through the District’s Career and Technical Education Department, the Program helps bridge the gap between the classroom and the “real world” by bringing teachers into the workplace for one week. Teachers then have the opportunity to incorporate their new-found knowledge and observations into lesson plans for their students in the upcoming school year. United ISD would like to thank all 2012 Teacher Externship Sponsors

The rules state that only two bands can advance to the area level and then at Area G only two can advance to the State level. The Area G Honor Band audition will be held again
