Texas Network for School Improvement



The Texas Network for School Improvement (TxNSI) Collaborative is a networked improvement community designed to increase the percentage of Black, Latino/a, and students experiencing poverty who are on track to college and career success by the end of 8th grade, using math as the entry point. We strive to achieve this through a set of braided supports: tailored professional learning; coaching to help campus teams (e.g., PLCs) test change ideas to address specific challenges they are experiencing; and a facilitated network approach to learn from one another.

Uniting improvement science with the power of a networked community to innovate and learn together, the TxNSI Collaborative spans districts in Texas Education Service Center Regions 10 and 11. TxNSI is one of more than 30 networks in more than 20 states using continuous improvement methods to change middle school and high school outcomes – a total of $240 million in grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
