In the spring of 2016, Texas Education Agency (TEA) named its first recipients of Early College High School (ECHS) Demonstration Site grants. The grants provide financial and technical support to high-performing ECHS campuses that are implementing defined best practices. To be eligible for funding, campuses were required to have been a TEA-designated ECHS for at least four years (with a graduated class), and be at an exemplar level in at least three domains of the ECHS Blueprint.
During the grant period, ECHS demonstration site campuses will provide mentoring, technical assistance, webinars and open house opportunities to new and prospective ECHS school leaders. The ECHS demonstration sites will also share best practices content through regional and statewide conferences. Learn more about the demonstration sites listed here.
