TO THE ADMINISTRATOR ADDRESSED:
SUBJECT: School Safety Choice Option (SSCO)
Section 9532 of the No Child Left Behind Act requires the Texas
Education Agency (TEA) to identify campuses that demonstrate patterns in
student behavior which warrant a transfer option for students attending
that campus as Persistently Dangerous Schools. Additionally, TEA must
ensure that students who are victims of a violent criminal act in or on
the grounds of school property have the option to transfer to a safe
elementary or secondary school within the local educational agency (LEA).
In Texas, this option is designated as the School Safety Choice Option
The following information and guidance documents are available on the NCLB web site at: http://www.tea.state.tx.us/nclb/ssco.html:
School officials are encouraged to review current-year PEIMS data to identify trends that indicate identification as a campus required to implement the SSCO for future years.
If you have questions regarding this issue, please contact Carolyn
