Hutto ISD recognized for expanding college access to students

Hutto ISD was recently recognized as one of 130 school districts throughout the U.S. that reached success in creating educational opportunities for traditionally underrepresented students.

The district was placed on the College Board’s Gaston Caperton Opportunity Honor Roll for Expanding Access to College.

The honor roll featured districts that have expanded higher education accessibility by providing students with innovative college-preparation programs and rigorous academics.

“I am so excited and proud to see that all the work that the district and our staff have been doing over the last several years is bearing fruit for our students in both college readiness and college attendance,” Hutto ISD Superintendent Douglas Killian said in a statement. “It's also a testament to our students who have stepped up their efforts and belief in their abilities, as well. It's inspiring to think that students that may never have thought of college as an option are now believers.”
