Legislative update received by PJC regents at Monday meeting

Published or Revised April 01, 2019

Paris Junior College regents received an update on the Texas Legislative session at their Monday, March 25, 2019 meeting, including hopes by the college that TC3 and NETnet will continue to be funded. Progress on those issues will be known later this week.

TC3 is a technology consortium for PJC’s financial and student information systems allowing multiple colleges to implement the same software system, receive reduced prices and have the opportunity to bring reduced costs by sharing services. PJC is joined in the consortium by Angelina College, Kilgore College, Texarkana College, Northeast Texas Community College, Hill College, and Midland College.

NETnet is the Northeast Texas Consortium and the Center for Educational Technologies, the collaborative effort of 13 higher education institutions bringing a wide range of instruction to 50 rural Northeast Texas counties containing 46 percent of the rural Texas population. Among many important services, NETnet provides affordable broadband internet to PJC in Paris, Greenville and Sulphur Springs.

“Losing either of these would be a huge fiscal hit to PJC,” said PJC President Dr. Pam Anglin.
