TxNSI


The TxNSI Resource Library has been developed to support teachers, coaches, campus, and district leaders as they implement continuous improvement and effective math teaching practices in pursuit of equity and an increased percentage of Black, Latino/x, and students experiencing poverty who are on-track by the end of 8th grade. The resources shared have been developed and compiled by the TxNSI Hub, made up of Educate Texas, Learning Forward, and the Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas at Austin, and are aligned to the network’s goals and priorities through 2023.
