Texas Education Agency (TEA) must identify for school improvement any campus that fails to make adequate yearly progress (AYP) for two consecutive years for the same indicator; math, reading, attendance and/or graduation rate.
The School Improvement Program (SIP) provides supplemental funds to Title I campuses identified for school improvement. A student attending a Title I low-performing school must be provided the option to transfer to another public school within the local education agency (LEA), unless the LEA lacks the capacity to do so, and eligible students must be oferred Supplemental Educational Services (SES).
The current list of campuses identified in SIP, the requirements for each Stage of SIP, and Guidance for SIP are found on this site.
