The Texas Education Agency (TEA), in collaboration with the Texas Center for District and School Improvement (TCDSS) has released a research-based framework for continuous district and school improvement. This framework will direct the development of both district and campus improvement plans. Additionally, this unified system of intervention provides a common language and process for addressing the school improvement challenge. The long-term goal is a unified state and federal accountability system that avoids unnecessary duplication of efforts.
