Title I Focus School Support Grant (Texas)
B - Readily funds technology as part of an award
Texas Education Agency (TEA)
The purpose of this grant is to increase the capacity of Education Service Centers (ESCs) to facilitate work with identified Focus schools in their region. Specific to this grant, œfocus schools are the identified Title I serving schools with the widest gaps in reading and math performance, as compared to safeguard targets examined across seven federal student groups.
This project is a component of Texas initiatives designed to meet the desired outcomes established in the approved ESEA flexibility waiver. The following target outcomes are established with the objective that schools currently identified would not meet the criteria and thresholds to be identified as focus schools in the future:
- Participating schools will decrease the gaps existing within all seven federal student groups between actual performance and Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) targets in Reading/ELA and Mathematics, as compared to baseline 2014 gaps;
- Participating schools will meet or exceed current year AMOs established in the waiver for state proficiency rates. Current, operational AMOs can be reviewed here: Texas NCLBESEA Waiver Information; and
- Participating schools will not rank in the lowest performing schools in the state when measuring gaps in performance between actual performance and AMO target within the seven federal student groups. In essence, they would no longer be identified as focus schools in Texas, using the same methodology for identification used at the project onset.
