The military Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) has brought thousands of military families to Texas. To assist area school districts and military families in transition, the Texas Education Agency has provided a grant for those Education Service Centers in the state that are most significantly affected by BRAC. The purpose of the grant is to provide assistance in transitioning the children of relocating military and the associated civilian personnel into the Texas Public Schools.
Since the inception of regional education service centers in Texas in 1965, the Region 19 Education Service Center has played an integral role in the provision of essential services to school districts and charter schools in the implementation of school improvement and reform. As a non-regulatory entity, the Education Service Center is here to assist schools in maximizing student achievement as well as to support efficiency and economy in school operations.
The Education Service Center – Region 19 supports the following goals:
- Collaborate with all stakeholders in the Region 19 school districts impacted by military Base Realignment and Closure
- Enhance existing communication channels between Region 19 public schools and Fort Bliss families
- Serve as liaison between Region 19 school districts and Fort Bliss to assure successful transitions for military families
For additional information or assistance, please contact the Region 19 BRAC liaison:
