||As part of this work, Safal Partners will support the following school districts with the planning and implementation of a community school model that can support the various needs of their students:
Pharr-San Juan Alamo
East Austin College Prep
Houston Independent School District (HISD)
Each of these districts has unique needs. We will support Pharr-San Juan Alamo increase the quality of all early childhood learning centers in their region. We’re working with East Austin College Prep to create a trauma-informed community school model, and supporting HISD’s efforts to create feeder patterns that set up young boys of color for success.
Eight grantees were awarded $350,000 planning phase grants to implement the community partnerships initiative.
Grantees will be required to spend a portion of the grant award to hire a vender on the TEA state- approved vendor list. Beyond this required amount, the grantee has the flexibility to choose how it spends its funds to achieve the predetermined outcomes.
