Cedar Hill Businesses Help Families Choose Seats at CHISD
(Cedar Hill, TX) You don’t expect to see a school desk at a bank or restaurant, but now through Jan. 10, nearly a dozen Cedar Hill businesses are showcasing decorated student desks to help promote academic choice programs available at Cedar Hill ISD.
Through the district’s “Choose Your Seat” campaign, families can learn more about the academic programs available by application. CHISD is an open enrollment district; students living in the Cedar Hill ISD attendance boundaries and those outside of the district can apply to any program by Jan. 10 for the 2020-21 school year.
“There is a seat for every student at CHISD. Scholars can immerse themselves in a collegiate setting, earn an associate degree, solve real-world problems in our middle school STEAM academies and more,” said Tierney Tinnin, chief of communications and marketing. “It is wonderful to have the support of the Cedar Hill business community during this campaign. Families can learn about the programs available to their children while they enjoy dinner or take care of business at their local bank.”
