AUSTIN – The Texas Education Agency today released a study regarding the impact of potential school district consolidation in the state’s five largest counties: Bexar, Dallas, Harris, Tarrant and Travis.The analysis reveals creation of such mega-districts would increase costs and would not improve student performance as a result of consolidation.New Jersey’s auditor is hardly alone in his thinking.
Although the trend slowed down over the years, there appear to be a growing number of states revisiting this managerial move -- and with good reason.
This is a list of school districts in Texas, sorted alphabetically.
All districts come under the jurisdiction of the Texas Education Agency (TEA).
Extracurricular activities involving competitions between schools typically come under the jurisdiction of the University Interscholastic League (UIL), which is not part of TEA.
