Learning Acceleration Support Opportunities (LASO) Grants

The Learning Acceleration Support Opportunities (LASO) is the next iteration of a universal consolidated application cycle from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) that strategically batches grant funding opportunities to support continued learning acceleration and innovation opportunities among Texas public schools.

Strong Foundations Planning

This grant supports school systems in creating a strong math and/or literacy framework based on research about how students learn best. Strong Foundations Planning Support helps LEAs develop a clear, research-based system of values and guidance; ensure alignment of curriculum and instruction systems; and build the "why" behind instructional changes for all stakeholders.

Strong Foundations Implementation

TEA's Strong Foundations Implementation provides grant funds to Texas public school districts for technical assistance to support high-fidelity implementation of the instructional materials, as well as high-quality professional learning for teachers, coaches, and administrators.

School Action Fund

e2L supports public schools in customizing, implementing, and measuring the success of a learning framework and an actionable, long-term strategic plan aligned to district priorities and community expectations.

Continuous/Targeted School Improvement

Effective Schools Framework Support
