On Tuesday, the Rockwall ISD approved a three-year partnership with Texas Tech that allows students to take online classes towards a college degree.
According to a statement on the ISD website, the program will be run through Rockwall’s Dr. Gene Burton College & Career Academy. District officials say the partnership will be a vital part of the STEM program for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
The Academy will host more than 50 for students in both district high schools. The building is set to open this fall.
