Background and Discussion:
The Texas Juvenile Justice Department (TJJD) has awarded funds for the Harris County Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program (JJAEP) to purchase online IOWA testing vouchers for students. TJJD requires the JJAEP to administer the test to students enrolled in the program. The grant pays for the cost of these testing vouchers.



Expected Impact:
The grant funds keep the program in compliance with TJJD requirements for operating the JJAEP and align with the objective to ensure all youth have equal access to educational opportunities and resources to help them thrive (SO 3).




Alternative Options:
Without the grant, other funds would have to be used to pay for the IOWA test vouchers.
