This Houston Education Research Consortium report assesses college advising needs in Pasadena, Galena Park, Sheldon, Humble, Aldine, Cypress-Fairbanks, Spring Branch, Alief and Katy ISD. 

From the assessments, three primary conclusions arose: (1) districts struggle with limited documentation and/or accessibility of college application and enrollment rates, (2) there is a strong need for increased post-secondary advising services and (3) there is a strong need for more equitable distribution of services across high school campuses. 

Findings are based on publicly available information from district and state sources, data from state agencies, and additional information gathered from phone interviews with district personnel.
