TO THE SUPERINTENDENT ADDRESSED:
Subject: Updated Public Education Grant (PEG) list for the 2018-19 school year
The Public Education Grant (PEG) list for the 2018–19 school year has been updated following the resolution of accountability ratings appeals. The PEG list identifies campuses with passing rates on STAAR that are less than or equal to 50 percent for any subject in any two of the preceding three years or were rated ImprovementRequired by the state accountability system in 2015, 2016, or 2017. For more information about the PEG program or to see the preliminary PEG list for the 2018–19 school year, please see the To The Administrator Addressed letter released on August 15, 2017.
Three campuses were removed from the preliminary 2018–19 PEG list: Cater Elementary School in Temple ISD (014909102), Liberty-Eylau C K Bender Elementary School in Liberty-Eylau ISD (019908103), and Short Elementary School in Arlington ISD (220901123) because the appeals of their academic accountability ratings were granted. Please note that while academic accountability ratings can be appealed, placement on the PEG list cannot.

Please direct questions about either the PEG program or the methodology used to determine PEG-listed campuses to the Performance Reporting Department at (512) 463-9704. Questions about funding implications should be directed to the State Funding Division at (512) 463-9238.
