System of Great Schools




Supporting district leaders to ensure that every student has access to a high-quality learning environment. 


TEA launched the System of Great Schools (SGS) Technical Assistance Network to support school districts across Texas that are interested in exploring and pursuing the System of Great Schools strategy for system-wide reform. This is an optional technical support program designed with a cohort model allowing interested districts to apply and participate. Check out the new System of Great Schools (SGS) website

What is the goal of the System of Great Schools Network?

The System of Great Schools Network supports districts to develop a locally designed system-level innovation and problem-solving approach with the goal of: 

Increasing the # and % of students in top-rated schools and reducing the # and % of students in low-rated schools.

Districts that pursue the SGS strategy will design and implement a continuous improvement process that annually evaluates school quality, parent demand, and neighborhood needs to take strategic action to both improve schools and provide parents with the schools and programs they desire.

Districts pursuing SGS related work will likely engage the levers in varying ways and at different times.
