ARRA - Texas Guidance
Texas Guidance offers information about the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF) and other ARRA grant funds.
TEA has identified four overarching goals for making ARRA funding opportunities as efficacious as possible throughout the state:
- Increasing efforts to institute rigorous post secondary standards and high quality (valid, reliable) assessments
- Ensure continuing to improve teacher effectiveness and supporting the equitable distribution of qualified teachers across the state
- Enhancing pre-kindergarten to post-secondary data systems that track progress and foster continuous improvement
- Expand the state’s support and effective interventions for the lowest-performing schools
