Public Education Grant

In 1995, the Texas Legislature created the Public Education Grant (PEG) program. It permits parents of children assigned to attend schools that meet certain criteria to request that their children transfer to other schools or other districts. 

    Campuses that receive an F rating in both the Student Achievement domain and the School Progress domain are on the PEG List. Because all campuses received a label of Not Rated: Declared State of Disaster in 2020, 2019 ratings were used to determine the 2021–22 PEG List. On or before February 1 of each year, every district must notify the parents of students assigned to a campus on the PEG list of their eligibility to request a transfer. Districts that accept these transfer students (known as PEG transfers) receive weighted funding for each PEG transfer.

    An extensive frequently asked questions document provides details of the PEG program.
