Campus Turnaround Guidance and Resources

House Bill (HB) 1842 is comprehensive legislation related to districts, charter schools, and campuses, specifically campus turnaround plans. After a campus has been identified as unacceptable for two consecutive years, the campus must develop and submit to the agency a turnaround plan explaining the campus’ systemic approach to producing significant and sustainable gains in achievement and a Met Standard rating within two years. Campuses not meeting this standard in two years are subject to further sanctions, including campus closure or placement of a board of managers over the district. Texas Education Code §39.107 and the guidance and resources below will provide further details and support around turnaround planning requirements.
