HISD Releases Independent Program Report on TEACH’s Impact

The Houston Independent School District’s Department of Research and Accountability recently conducted an independent, multi-year program evaluation of TEACH’s impact in several schools across the district. The study found significant decreases in the number of excused, unexcused, and total absences from these students; decreases in the percentage of out-of-school suspensions; and significant increases in STAAR reading and math scores.

TEACH by the Numbers

TEACH is serving 1,100 educators and 16,000 students in the Houston Independent School District in the 2019-2020 school year, working in a total of twenty-five schools.

TEACH works exclusively with low-income students in HISD, as measured by the percentage of students on the federally funded free and reduced lunch program. On average, 90 percent of students in TEACH schools are considered “low-income” and receive free or reduced lunch prices.

In 2017, the last year for which data is currently available, TEACH schools reported decreases in suspension rates ranging between 39% to 81%. Notably, two of our seven TEACH schools reported an 81% decrease in suspension rates.

HISD’s Research and Accountability studies have found that:

97.9% of teachers believe TEACH strategies have made a difference in their classrooms.

95% of teachers agree that it is easier to gain and maintain student attention using TEACH strategies.

92% of teachers believe they can more easily handle small student incidents without escalating into major disciplinary problems.
