TEA receives $10 million on high-tech system to improve Texas schools
The Michael & Susan Dell Foundation has contributed $10 million to establish a Texas Student Data System for the Texas Education Agency.
The Texas Education Agency will use the money to improve student achievement statewide. Specifically, the Texas Student Data System will allow teachers and administrators at K-12 schools to better analyze student data. The system will allow educators to make decisions, predict performance levels and graduation rates, change the course of individual students at risk and better prepare students for college, according to the foundation.
