Improvement Required Resources
ESC Region 20 provides a variety of services to support schools and districts implementing state and/or federal accountability interventions.  
ESC-20 School Support Team
The Region 20 School Support Team is here to assist local school districts and campuses in improving student performance, operating efficiently and effectively and carrying out mandates from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the Texas Legislature. The School Support Team mission is to reduce the number of campuses rated "Improvement Required" by enhancing capacity statewide for supporting comprehensive, ongoing improvement of under-performing districts and schools.

Required Trainings for Campuses Receiving an Overall F Rating and/or Comprehensive Improvement Support 2019-2020

Campuses receiving an overall F rating and/or Comprehensive Improvement Support for 2019-2020 will be required to attend Effective Schools Framework (ESF) Training at ESC-20 in August or September, 2019.

At the core of effective schools is effective instruction: interactions between students, teachers, and content determine learning outcomes. This instructional core is strengthened and supported by effective, well-supported teachers, high-quality curriculum, and positive school culture. Strong school leadership and careful planning encompass and ensure each of these prioritized levers.

The Effective Schools Framework consists of a set of district commitments and, for schools, essential actions. District Commitments describe what local education agencies do to ensure that schools are set up for success. The Essential Actions describe what the most effective schools do to support powerful teaching and learning.

*This session is required for the DCSI, supervisor of the principal (if not the DCSI) and Principal of the campuses receiving an overall F rating, and/or Comprehensive - per the state and federal accountability rating systems.
