• Purpose of Funds
    Funding was granted to Houston ISD high schools to provide tutorial support for the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), American College Test (ACT), and Texas Success Initiative (TSI) assessment. Campuses used the money to hire third-party tutors, provide extra-duty compensation for teachers (who served as tutors), and purchase testing materials (e.g., textbooks).

    Dashboard Descriptions
    The SAT/ACT/TSI Preparation dashboards display results of Houston ISD students during the 2018–2019, 2020–2021, and 2021–2022 school years by campus. The 2018–2019 and 2020–2021 results pertain to the Classes of 2019 and 2021, while the 2021–2022 results reflect all Houston ISD students who tested that year. Budget data (e.g., funds allocated, percentage of funds spent, dollar amount of funds spent, and funds available), related to SAT/ ACT/TSI Preparation, are also shown in the bottom right corner of the homepage. A series of secondary pages display test results (e.g., number of students tested, percentage of students meeting college-ready benchmark, and average composite scores) disaggregated by ethnicity, gender, and economically-disadvantaged status. Caution should be applied while comparing SAT/ACT data across the 2018–2019, 2020–2021, and 2021–2022 school years. The number of students tested in 2020 was negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. While SAT data in 2018–2019 and 2020–2021 pertained only to the senior classes of those years, SAT data from 2021–2022 included all testers across the district. Additionally, the 2022 ACT scores were not available at the time of this report.
