Welcome to TRUCE Learning Center!
"Teaching with a growth mindset, one student at a time."

The Real Understanding of Completing an Education

The purpose of TRUCE Learning Center is to provide an educational environment for students who violate certain standards of conduct.  TRUCE provides a combination of academics and behavioral intervention strategies to meet the needs of at-risk students. 

From the Director

Chris McGrath, DirectorAs the school year comes to a close, this is an excellent time to examine your child’s progress this school year.  I would recommend you take this opportunity to closely examine their report cards, STAAR, EOC scores, and credits this school year. 

Many times there are items that are incorrect or incomplete on your child’s report cards.  These grades can be easily corrected if the school is made aware of the situation before the staff leaves for the summer.  However, the more time that elapses, the harder it is to correct any inconsistencies or errors.

I am very proud of everyone’s progress this school year, and I hope everyone has a safe summer break.  After June 13, 2016, please contact Wanda Byther at 817-252-2390 with any questions concerning TRUCE Learning Center.

Chris McGrath, Director of TRUCE Learning Center
