To meet the needs of Texas students and prepare them for success in the 21st century, Texas must devote significant time and resources for professional development for all educators. High quality professional learning on an ongoing basis can leverage improvement in professional practice and increased student achievement. The STAR Grant provided funding to districts to establish and implement a program that includes strong, supportive, and sustained Professional Development at the district and campus level.
The STAR Grant funding was distributed in March 2007 and the grant was completed in July 2009.
