The vision of the Community Partnerships initiative is to support significant improvements in educational and developmental outcomes for children and youth who live in struggling communities by providing access to great schools and access to a system of high-quality community, academic, and government resources from birth through college and a career. 



The Texas Education Agency’s (TEA), Student Success Initiative provides Community Partnership grants to local school districts to implement a comprehensive support program that increases the number of students performing on grade level by leveraging academic, community, and governmental supports. The initiative supports schools in creating a continuum of resources to provide wrap-around and holistic services for students and families.  

The Community Partnerships Grant supports school districts in addressing the needs of the whole child, expanding family engagement, and building strong relationships to improve academic and developmental outcomes for students."
