Early College High School Blueprint
Purpose of the ECHS Blueprint
The Early College High School (ECHS) Blueprint provides foundational principles and standards for innovative partnerships with colleges and universities. All Early College High Schools are required to meet all the design elements for each benchmark annually. Phase-in of the ECHS Blueprint will be complete upon the conclusion of the 2021-2022 school year. All Early College High Schools are required to meet Outcomes-Based Measures (OBMs) on student performance indicators related to access, attainment, and achievement. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) provides technical assistance to promote implementation of the ECHS model with fidelity.
