State Farm's 'Choice Bus' to visit HISD schools
State Farm's "Choice Bus" program will be visiting various Houston ISD schools from Tuesday, May 22 to Friday, May 25 to help reduce the school dropout rate and increase the graduation rate.
Students will enter the bus to receive a unique educational experience. The first half of the bus is designed to look like a classroom, and the second half is designed to look like a prison cell. The purpose is to get the students' attention and stress the importance of education and the possible consequences of dropping out.
The "Choice Bus" will visit the following schools in the Houston ISD from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.:
Fondren Middle School, located at 6333 S. Braeswood Blvd., on Tuesday, May 22.
Long Middle School, located at 6501 Bellaire Blvd., on Wednesday, May 23.
Key Middle School, located at 4000 Kelley St., on Thursday, May 24.
Cullen Middle School, located at 6900 Scott St., on Friday, May 25.
The "Choice Bus" has been traveling to Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina for the past two years. This will be the first year that it will visit Texas.
The program is possible through a partnership between State Farm Insurance and the Mattie C. Stewart Foundation.
