FAQs – Funding

Who will pay for the TSDS development costs?

Funding for projects that are under way will come from several sources, including TEA, current and pending statewide longitudinal grants from the US Department of Education, and support from other outside sources, including funding from the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation (MSDF).

Additional funding will be required to implement the full TSDS vision; however, the system is being designed to produce sustainable and positive outcomes based on the funding that has been committed.
