Who we are

The Texas Comprehensive Center (TXCC) at SEDL is one of 15 regional comprehensive centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The centers provide training and technical assistance to state education agencies (SEAs), enabling them to assist school districts and schools in the implementation and administration of programs authorized under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and using research-based information and strategies. TXCC works closely with the Texas Education Agency, supporting their efforts to implement, scale up, and sustain initiatives statewide as well as lead and support their school districts and schools in improving student outcomes. The TXCC partners with RMC Research.

Project Highlight

Texas Principal Evaluation and Support System

In early 2014, the Agency asked the TXCC to convene a steering committee of principals, administrators, and higher education faculty to provide input into the creation of an evaluative rubric correlated with the principal standards and incorporating weighted components, including student learning outcomes. The committee will meet in February, March, and April and is charged with finalizing the rubric and summative guide that will be piloted in 70 districts during the 2014–2015 school year. The TXCC will support this project in collaboration with TEA's external contractor, which will develop and pilot the instruments and provide professional development to staff of participating districts and ESCs.
