File Attachment:
The TEA Community Partnerships/Student Success Initiative provides grants and technical support to Texas public school districts and open enrollment charter schools in low income communities by leveraging community, academic, and government support to provide solutions for school and community improvement.

The vision of the Community Partnerships initiative is to support significant improvements in educational and developmental outcomes for children and youth who live in struggling communities by providing access to great schools and access to a system of high-quality community, academic, and resources from birth through college and a career.

TEA has identified four systems of practices for turning around struggling schools and communities.
I. Community Partnerships Program Design
II. Delivering Effective Schools and Academic Programs
III. Ensuring Families are engaged with the schools and have access to partnering agency resources
IV. Developing strong and intentional community partnerships
