Texas Impact Network

The Texas Impact Network, a joint venture between Educate Texas and the Commit Partnership, works with state and regional partners to help school districts make the most of Texas House Bill 3’s (HB 3) funding for evidence-backed programs.

HB 3 transformed public school finance in Texas. Passed by the Texas Legislature in 2019, HB 3 not only added $3.25 billion annually to fund public schools, but also created equitable, innovative funding opportunities that target our state’s highest-need students with up to $4 billion in additional investments.

To achieve broad, diverse and effective implementation of the core impact areas of Texas’ school finance reform legislation, the Texas Impact Network works with seven regional partners and three statewide programs to provide direct technical support to school systems across Texas:
  • Teacher Incentive Allotment: Funding for school systems that identify and reward their most effective educators to help keep them in the classroom and further incentivize them to teach at rural campuses and/or campuses with high levels of economic instability.

  • Additional Day School Year: Funding to provide up to 30 additional days of instruction to enhance teacher pay, mitigate pandemic-related learning loss, and prevent summer slide for students who tend to lose some of the achievement gains they made during the previous school year.

  • College, Career, & Military Readiness: Equitable funding granted to school systems for each student that both graduates from high school demonstrating college/career readiness, and completes a successful postsecondary transition to college, career, or the military.
