


English I (reading and writing on a single test and given one score)
English II (reading and writing on a single test and given one score)
Algebra I
Biology
U.S History
44
Other Tests That Can Satisfy EOC Score
Requirements
 Requires the TEA commissioner to determine a method by
which satisfactory performance on an AP, IB, SAT Subject
Test, the SAT or the ACT, or any nationally recognized norm‐referenced tests used by institutions of higher education
to award course credit based on satisfactory performance
to satisfy the EOC requirements for an equivalent course.

commissioner discretion to determine if any of these tests
are “at least as rigorous as an EOC.”

Other Tests That Can Satisfy EOC Score
Requirements
 Allows a student who fails to perform satisfactorily on one
of these tests, other than the PSAT or the ACT-‐Plan, to
retake the test or another test, including the EOC, for the
purpose of satisfying the EOC requirements.

on the PSAT or the ACT-‐Plan must take the appropriate
EOC. Permits the commissioner to adopt rules for these
particular provisions.

Accountability
This presentation is for initial planning purposes only as we
await implementation details and transition plans.
New Index System
This presentation is for initial planning purposes only as we
await implementation details and transition plans.
2013 Ratings Criteria
To receive a Met Standard Rating all campuses and districts must meet
the following accountability targets:
Each of the four indexes will have a score of 0 to 100 to represent the campus or district
performance:
Targets
Index 1: Student Achievement
Index 2: Student Progress
Districts and Campuses
50
5th percentile*
Index 3: Closing Performance Gaps
55
Index 4: Postsecondary Readiness
75
*Target will be set at about the fifth percentile of campus performance and will be applied to
both campuses and districts.
Campus Performance Rating from HB5
 Requires the commissioner to also assign each campus a
performance rating of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or
unacceptable.
 A campus rating of exemplary, recognized, or acceptable
reflects “acceptable” performance, and a rating of
unacceptable is deemed “unacceptable.”
 Requires the rating to be made public not later than August 8
of each year.
 Applies beginning with the 2016–2017 school year.
This presentation is for initial planning purposes only as we
await implementation details and transition plans.
What does this report tell
you about a campus?
NEW Community and Student
Engagement Accountability System
 Introduces a new component to the state
accountability system that requires each district to
report to TEA and make publically available a self-‐evaluation of the district and each campus in the area
of community and student engagement.
53
NEW Community and Student
Engagement Accountability System
 Requires a local committee to establish criteria that will be used to issue a
rating to the district and each campus of exemplary, recognized,
acceptable, or unacceptable for both overall performance and on individual
factors that include: (1) fine arts; (2) wellness and P.E.; (3) community and
parental involvement, i.e. tutoring programs or participation in community
service projects; (4) 21st Century Workforce Development program; (5)
second language acquisition program; (6) digital learning environment; (7)
dropout prevention strategies; (8) educational programs for gifted and
talented students; and (9) record of district and campus compliance with
statutory reporting and policy requirements.
 Requires the rating to be made public not later than August 8 of each year.
 Applies beginning with the 2013–201454school year.
NEW Texas School Accountability
Dashboard
 Creates a new dashboard that requires TEA to develop and
maintain a website separate from its own for the public to be able
to access campus and district accountability information.
 Requires the commissioner to adopt a performance index for the
dashboard in four areas: (1) student achievement, (2) student
progress, (3) closing performance gaps, and, (4) postsecondary
readiness.
THIS GUARANTEES USAGE OF INDEX SYSTEM IN FUTURE AS IT IS
NOW IN STATUTE!
This presentation is for initial planning purposes only as we
await implementation details and transition plans.
Pressing Issues…
 The achievement gap is bigger than it ever was in TAKS for most districts. It
is falling along lines of poverty and economically disadvantaged.
 Staffing for the future of this new endorsement world. What courses is
your district going to offer?
 High School Counselors now have less testing, but more responsibility and
“career and college” counseling with students and parents. HB5 places
tremendous responsibility on the sophistication of your counseling services.
 The Index system places great emphasis on high performing students.
Systems will have to acclimate to the rigor needs of these students.
