What is the Texas Partnership Opportunity?
What is a Texas Partnership?
Under a Texas Partnership, the district authorizes a carefully selected partner to operate a school under a performance contract. The partner has responsibility for staff, curriculum, calendar, assessments, and other school-level decision-making while the district holds the partner accountable for academic and financial performance.
What are the Texas Partnership Benefits?
SB 1882 provides two benefits in order to encourage districts to use Texas Partnerships as an action to improve student outcomes.
Approved partnerships may receive additional state funding for the partnership school, and schools with an unacceptable state accountability rating are eligible to receive a two-year exemption from specific accountability interventions.
- Additional Funding
- Accountability Exemption
