The consortium will make recommendations in four key areas:
1. Digital learning - Engagement of students in digital learning, including the use of electronic textbooks and instructional materials and courses offered through the Texas Virtual School Network;
2. Learning standards - Standards that a student must master to be successful in a competitive postsecondary environment;
3. Multiple assessments - Various methods of measuring student progress to keep students, parents and schools informed, and the actions consortium participants are taking to improve learning; and
4. Local control - Ways in which reliance on local input and decision-making enable communities and parents to be involved in the important decisions regarding the education of their children.
