School Climate Matters

In the 2013–14 school year, 148 Title 1 schools in the state of Texas received both the High Performing and High Progress distinctions. These campuses, better known as Reward Schools, reported best practices that aligned with Department of Education’s Critical Success Factors (CSFs) that are a part of the Department’s school turnaround principles. During Reward Schools walkthroughs, TXCC and TEA staff focused on the School Climate CSF and observed that all Reward Schools’ campuses created a positive learning environment for students.
