School Improvement Program

ESF Framework

The goal of the Effective Schools Framework (ESF) is to provide a clear vision for what districts and schools across the state do to ensure an excellent education for all Texas students. The ESF provides the basis for school diagnostics and for aligning resources and support to the needs of each school. The ESF was developed in conjunction with school and district leaders and included a national review of research about what makes high-performing schools excellent.
