Five University of Texas colleges and programs of education have responded to a call to action from the Texas Education Agency to help low-performing schools in their region improve student outcomes and achievement.

UT Austin, UT Dallas, UT Rio Grande Valley, UT San Antonio and UT Tyler have all joined the UT System PreK-12 School Turnaround Partnership, which connects colleges of education with “improvement required” (IR) public schools across the state. The goal is to transform low-performing schools into successful and sustainable learning environments for all students.

The UT System Board of Regents is providing funding to support the participation of the five UT institutions.
