Building pathways
from education
to workplace.

The P-20 Central Texas Regional Council supports the State’s mission of increasing the participation and success of all Texans in career and college readiness.

The Council was formed in 2008 to serve students in the Central Texas College and Temple College service areas. After completing a strategic plan, the Council received recognition status from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board in 2009. The P-20 Central Texas Regional Council is committed to increase success rates from pre-kindergarten through college, with a focus on low-income and minority students. The Council works collaboratively to foster an integrated education system while addressing such issues as college readiness standards, teacher education, education and school-to-work resource development.

P20 Central Texas Regional Council is a school-to-work initiative building pathways from education to workplace to provide a skilled workforce. We want to recognize the communities, institutions and business organizations that are committed to preparing their students for the workplace.
