Summer Math & Reading Academies
Training developed by TEA for priority schools

Reading & Math Achievement Academies

These academies are provided based on Senate Bill 925, Senate Bill 934, and Senate Bill 972 of the 84th Texas Legislature, 2015. In accordance with these bills and available funds, registration will be prioritized in order to serve as many of the identified eligible campuses.

We are excited to bring the state developed Reading Achievement Academies and Math Achievement Academies to Region 12. 

Summer 2019

Kindergarten and 1st Grade Math Academies

2nd and 3rd Grade Math Academies

K-5 Reading Excellence Achievement Academies Grants

Eligible Campuses

  • The academies are provided at no cost for qualified attendees from eligible campuses. 
  • Eligible campuses can be found at this link.

Qualified Attendees

  • In order to qualify, participating teachers must provide instruction directly to students in the appropriate grade level and content area. For example, to attend the Grade K-1 Math Academy the teacher should be a classroom teacher or interventionist who directly provides math instruction to kindergarten or 1st grade students.
  • Teachers who provide "direct instruction" include classroom teachers, special education teachers, and interventionists.
  • Curriculum specialists, instructional coaches, or other staff positions who work with teachers but do not regularly provide direct instruction to students may only attend if no one else from the campus is able to attend.

 

Attendees must have an ESC Works profile at Region 12 in order to register. Profiles can be created at ESC Works.

The state is providing stipends for eligible attendees.
