ACC and PTECH are all diving right into their courses. Cosmetology is almost ready to start taking clients. Automotive classes are changing oil for our teachers and staff.

Crockett ECHS Back to School Night

Thursday, Sep. 8th, 5:30-7pm

5601 Menchaca Road

Austin, TX

  • We are so excited for Back to School Night so you can chat with your student's teachers about their learning this year.
  • This year, we will have an 'open house' style Back to School Night. Parents will visit the teachers they want in any order; parents can choose to go to whichever classrooms they wish; and, lastly, parents will visit each classroom for less than 15 minutes.
  • Parents will view student schedules on the Portal (there will be a table on the Red Walk around the Courtyard to assist parents with viewing schedules).
  • Student volunteers will be around the building to assist parents with finding classrooms.
  • There will also be some clubs and organizations set up for you to visit around the Red Walk courtyard.

RSVPs are enabled for this event.

Learning Science & DNA!

If you have a chance to talk to one of our Principles of Biomedical Science students, ask them what their current going theory is for how "Anna Garcia" died. They will be spending the next few weeks working through DNA, blood spatter, social media, cell tower pings and more types of evidence to determine if this was a homicide, accidental death or natural causes.
