Dozens of East Texas School Districts cited as low-performing

(KYTX) - Nearly 50 East Texas schools are on a final Public Education Grant list released Thursday by the Texas Education Agency indicate a low-performing rating.

The list allows parents to know about a particualr school their child is enrolled in that is deemed underperfoming so they have the option to transfer their student.

Several districts appeared multiple times on the list, including Tyler ISD, Longview ISD, Marshall ISD and Nacogdoches ISD.

The PEG program permits parents whose children attend schools on the PEG list to request that their children transfer to schools in other districts.

A list of PEG-designated schools is provided to districts annually. By February 1, districts must notify each parent of a student in the district assigned to attend a school on the PEG list. Based on the February list, parents may request a transfer for the following school year.
