Texans Can Academies (Texans Can) is a network of 13 charter schools, serving students in ninth through 12th grade in five large Texas cities: Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio. All 13 Texans Can schools are high-need charter schools. Ten participating campuses have received priority school designation. All receive Title I funding to serve a total student body of which 4,446 are categorized as low-income and 90 percent are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. Texans Can will leverage lessons learned from a 2-year state grant implementation. Project READY-2ExCel will establish an effective human capital management system (HCMS) and performance-based compensation system (PBCS) at each target school.
