Is your school expanding? Or, are you part of a team that hopes to open a charter school in Texas?  TCSA’s new market identification service can help your team identify a target location that aligns to your school’s needs.

The TCSA team works, on an ongoing basis, to develop tools and services that provide value to charter leaders and their boards. We are pleased to announce the launch of our latest offering — the statewide heat mapping tool and its related market identification service. 

The tool accesses TCSA’s rich repository of historical data related to charter school and ISD performance across the state and merges key school performance and composition data points with community-level census data. The data analysis renders a map with “heat’ showing areas of density of need across the state.

The tool enables the TCSA Growth and Development Team to identify locations aligned with your goals using a variety of filtering options. Additionally, the tool provides location markers for existing charter school and ISD campus locations across the state.  A few of the variables available in the location analysis include:

  • Academic ratings
  • Campus-level, student enrollment composition data (Economically Disadvantaged, English Language Learners, At-Risk students and additional student demographic options available)
  • School type
  • Grade levels served
  • Community Poverty rates
  • Community educational attainment levels
  • Community-level limited English language use
  • Geographic options include: state, region, county, city and district level

As you consider where to locate your new school site, we encourage you to let TCSA assist you in your expansion and new school development efforts.  Feel free to contact the TCSA Quality Service and Growth Team for additional information – quality@txcharterschools.org or by calling 512-584-8272.
