Welcome to ACET
Over the past 40 years, the Association for Compensatory Educators of Texas has helped thousands of educators provide programs for educationally disadvantaged children in Texas. ACET is committed to insure that all children from Texas reach the pinnacle of success.
Congratulations to Dr. Robert Meaux, ACET President, for his recent nomination to receive the National Association of Federal Education Program Administrators (NAFEPA) State Leadership Award which will be presented at the NAFEPA Conference March 22-25, 2015 in Washington, DC.

Wow! What a great turnout for the ACET 2014 Fall Conference. Thank you ACET members for making this fall conference a big success and memorable experience! Members from all 20 regions were in attendance and helped push the attendance figure to 350. The Corpus Christi Omni Hotel was a great host and everyone seemed to enjoy the meeting room spaces as well as the downtown/seawall location. A big “THANK YOU” goes out to all of our presenters, general, focus and best practices concurrent session speakers who presented useful and interesting topics. As usual, all of the sessions were well attended and no big surprise was the New Directors Academy turnout which was over 150 – that’s a lot of new directors in the state! Keynotes by Ervin Knezek and Steven Spillan were very well received and of course we really appreciate TEA for sending their best headed up by Anita Villarreal and Nora Hancock and Cory Green as well as some new faces to the ACET Conference scene. We also appreciate our exhibitors and sponsors TECS, Educational Technology, Pearson and Thinking Maps who make the special effort to attend our conferences and make their products and services available to our members.
