Welcome to the Texas Title I Priority Schools (TTIPS) Grant website! The purpose of this website is to provide you information about the TTIPS Grant options, requirements, resources, and contacts. TTIPS is Texas' version of the School Improvement Grant (SIG).

The TTIPS grant was established to assist the lowest-achieving schools across the state of Texas. Campuses are eligible if identified as "persistently lowest-achieving" or have met other eligibility criteria defined in the federal guidelines.

With the TTIPS Grant, TEA is committed to assisting local education agencies (LEAs) in turning around low-performing campuses and to improving the academic performance of all campuses that are eligible for Title I funding. This program offers LEAs an unprecedented opportunity to make "bold choices for a bright future."
