What is the T3 Partnership?

This newly formed local partnership of school districts, colleges, universities, employers, and organizations, is anchored by a dedicated backbone staff focused on serving students and families in Tarrant County. Launching in Fall 2020, the T3 Partnership provides a variety of programs designed to inform and engage students and families about college and career pathways. Learn more in this overview video.

We are dedicated to improving student outcomes in 3 primary areas:

  • Graduating more students from high school who are College, Career, and Military Ready (CCMR)
  • Helping more students enroll in a postsecondary pathway with confidence
  • Empowering more students to persist and earn a degree or credential and enter the workforce prepared for a successful career

Fort Worth ISD Students: What’s your next step?

In year one (2020-2021), all Fort Worth ISD juniors and seniors are eligible to complete the T3 Partnership Pledge. By taking the pledge, the T3 team will help you build a customized plan focused on life after high school. Effective Fall 2021, eligible students will receive a “last dollar” tuition-free scholarship to Tarrant County College (TCC) for up to eight (8) consecutive semesters or the completion of a certificate or associate degree.
