As part of Texas Initiatives located at the Region XIII Education Service Center, the TCDSS coordinates and leverages statewide technical assistance services to support districts and schools meeting required performance standards under both state and federal accountability systems. Additionally, the TCDSS leads and manages a number of grants and special projects for the Texas Education Agency focused on building statewide capacity for school improvement to ensure all students graduate career and college ready.
