Progress in the General Curriculum (PGC)

The PGC Network works in collaboration with the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to determine, establish, and maintain a Texas PGC Initiative as applicable to grades kindergarten through twelve. Education Service Center, Region 20 coordinates the 20-region PGC Network, which provides professional development and technical assistance to school districts, schools, and charter schools focused on all students with disabilities being involved in and showing progress in the general curriculum through curricular and instructional adaptations in the least restrictive environment.

For information on the other statewide networks, visit Statewide Leadership Functions and Projects on TEA's website. 

PGC Network Goal

The goal of the PGC Network is to increase results for students with disabilities. This includes:

  • An increase in state assessment proficiency rates in reading and mathematics for students with disabilities;
  • An increase of students with disabilities served in general education; and
  • A decrease of students with disabilities served outside of general education classrooms.


The PGC Network develops resources to support teachers and administrators who work with students receiving special education services.  Please view the short videos below for on overview on specific resources.
