High School Completion and Success Grant Program
Texas Education Agency (TEA) is pleased to inform you that the
following applications have been preliminarily selected
to receive a grant for the Texas High School Completion and Success
Grant Program. This preliminary selection was made after
evaluation by a review panel composed of educators, parents, and members of the business community.
This purpose of this program is to support the
establishment and implementation of comprehensive high school
completion and success initiatives. The grant program will
target low-performing and under performing high schools through
student-focused competitive intervention grants that will
provide direct and indirect (support) services to students
in grades 9-12.
Grants will be awarded to programs that demonstrate the
most potential to improve high school success and completion
and encourage students toward post-secondary education and
training, including basic skills grants to districts implementing
special programs for high school students who have not earned
sufficient credit to advance to the next grade; after-school
programs designed to prevent high school dropouts; and middle-college
programs that encourage at-risk students and students who
wish to accelerate their education by undertaking courses
of study that allow both high school and college level work.
February 1, 2004 - August 31, 2005.
