Partners for the ELL Linguistic Accommodations Research Summit

The Texas Comprehensive Center (TXCC) partnered with the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the Center on Instruction (COI) to offer the ELL Linguistic Accommodations Research Summit. Funding was provided by the U.S. Department of Education.

The TXCC is one of 16 regional comprehensive centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) to help low-performing schools and districts close achievement gaps and meet the goals of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act. The TXCC assists in building the capacity of the state and its school improvement infrastructure to support districts and schools in implementing the programs of NCLB. The TXCC is located at SEDL in Austin, Texas.

The mission of TEA is to provide leadership, guidance, and resources to help schools in Texas meet the educational needs of all students. Along with the State Board of Education, TEA oversees and guides public education programs in Texas, including curriculum, assessment, and accountability; educator certification; distribution of state and federal funds; compliance with federal guidelines; and data collection and maintenance. It also houses the Division of Regional Services, under which the regional education service centers (ESCs) are located. The main office of the TEA is located in Austin, Texas.

COI is one of the five content centers, funded by the USDE that support the regional comprehensive centers in their work of helping schools and districts meet the goals of NCLB, closing the achievement gap, and improving teaching and learning for all students. The center offers information on NCLB and best practices in reading, math, science, special education, and English language learning; syntheses of recent scientific research on instruction; and opportunities for professional development. Located at the RMC Research Corporation, COI is a partnership of five organizations, including the Texas Institute for Measurement, Evaluation and Statistics, which leads the center’s ELL strand.
