From Spring of 2020 through Winter 2021, The Texas Learning Exchange (TxLx) project collaborated with Texas educational leaders to develop innovative pre-K-12 learning resources, solutions and models focused on equity, access and overall enhancement of teaching and learning. Working alongside a diverse Steering Committee, TxLx developed and implemented a strategy to elevate and share resources and guides for districts to implement based on local needs and supports.

The Covid-19 pandemic created an opportunity to rethink educational delivery models and how to address the diverse needs of students. Because of his, coupled with increased attention to social justice and support for diversity across the country, we took pause to think about society’s systems for serving all–especially within education. Much was learned about key issues needed for ensuring the delivery of quality teaching and learning, both in person and remotely.

A project of Educate Texas in partnership with Getting Smart and Learner-Centered Collaborative, TxLx was complementary to the work of the Texas Education Agency’s Texas Home Learning Project.

Steering Committee

To help guide the project and resources, we have convened a diverse Steering Committee of district leaders and practitioners to collectively leverage expertise and experience across Texas. Members include large and small districts, as well as urban and rural representatives.

The Steering Committee is sharing experiences, evaluating resources and informing a professional learning framework.

The following district leaders served on the TxLx steering committee and helped inform and inspire content and resources. We are grateful for their time spent on the TxLx project, and their unwavering commitment to Texas learners.
