Connections After School Program

It is our mission to assist Pasadena ISD in meeting the needs of ALL 21st learners by providing affordable supervised after school care for elementary students with autism, intellectual disabilities or other significant developmental delays. The Connections Afterschool program is designed specifically for this population of students who exhibit severe behavior and/or have limited communication skills and have not been successful or not been admitted in traditional afterschool programs or daycares. The program is housed at Teague Elementary but is available for students who attend other PISD elementary schools. If you are interested in learning more about other program contact Karen Mintsioulis, Executive Director, Special Programs at (713) 740-0220 or click on  “Enrolling your Child” to review the application process.
