State Compensatory Education (SCE)What it is… State financial special allotment funding for programs and/or services designed to supplement the regular education programs for students identified as at-risk of dropping out of school (TEC29.081.) The purpose of SCE is to increase academic achievement and reduce the drop-out rate of students identified as at-risk. The goal is to provide a challenging and meaningful instructional program to close the achievement gap between students identified as at-risk of dropping out of school and their peers.
The Texas Transition and Employment Guide provides youth, young adults, parents, and professionals with secondary transition resources to facilitate a young person’s progress towards post-secondary goals to education, employment, and community living.
