Campus Turnaround Plan Guidance

After a campus has been identified as unacceptable for two consecutive years, the campus must develop and submit a turnaround plan to the agency explaining the campus’ systemic approach to producing significant and sustainable gains in achievement. Turnaround implementation guidance may be found on the Campus Turnaround Plan Guidance web page.

New 2021 Reflective Prioritization Activity Guidance and Tools

The Reflective Prioritization Activity (RPA) is a process to provide a structured opportunity for campuses to thoughtfully reflect on the implementation and progress made on prioritized Essential Actions of their 2020-2021 Targeted Improvement plan.

The RPA is designed for campuses and districts who have not yet engaged in the ESF Diagnostic process. Although the self-reflection does not replace a true ESF Diagnostic visit conducted by an outside facilitator, it allows campus leadership teams an opportunity to reflect on stakeholder feedback and current practices to identify action steps toward continuous improvement efforts.

Campuses engaging in the RPA are required to complete their TIP submission for Cycle 3, but they are exempt from completing Cycle 4. ESC staff and TEA School Improvement specialists are available to offer support and guidance with this process. Note: Campuses that are required to complete the RPA have been contacted by their TEA Specialist.
