The Office of School Improvement assists school districts and campuses with every aspect of School Improvement. The staff of the school improvement office represents programs of Title I, Bilingual/ESL, Special Education, Migrant, Career and Technology, and Parental Involvement. The staff is dedicated to assisting school districts in meeting state and federal accountability requirements under the No Child Left Behind Act. Assistance is provided to campuses rated academically unacceptable, or failing to meet AYP through on site technical assistance and coordination of all services of Region One ESC.
The Texas Center for District and School Support (TCDSS) serves as a coordinating point for statewide school improvement initiatives of the Texas Education Agency. As part of Texas Initiatives located at the Region XIII Education Service Center, the TCDSS coordinates and leverages statewide technical assistance services to support districts and schools meeting required performance standards under both state and federal accountability systems. Additionally, the TCDSS leads and manages a number of grants and special projects for the Texas Education Agency focused on building statewide capacity for school improvement to ensure all students graduate career and college ready.
