Texas School Accountability Dashboard



17
Per House Bill 5, the Texas School Accountability Dashboard provides a comparison
reporting system for districts and campuses based on 2014 performance index results
of the fully-implemented state accountability rating system.
Public release of dashboard reports has been changed from Friday, December 19 to
Tuesday, January 13.
Initial release meets the following statutory requirements of TEC § 39.309.
Additional enhancements will be made in future releases.
Public Education Grant (PEG) Program




18
A statutorily mandated program of school choice (TEC Ch. 29, Subchapter
G,§29.201-§29.205) was not affected by changes made by the Texas
Legislature in HB 3 in 2009.
Partially aligned with accountability ratings, but not fully aligned with
the state system.
Districts with campuses on 2015-16 PEG list will be notified via TEASE
Accountability in mid-December 2014.
Statute requires districts to notify parents of the 2015-16 list by
February 1, 2015.
PEG 15-16 Criteria
TAA Letter Dated 11/10:
Double Testing


USDE wants us to double test

8th Grade Math would count for middle school
accountability

Algebra 1 would be “banked” for high school
accountability
TEA continues to stand by statements made in
TAA letter dated March 6


Philosophy: “instructionally inappropriate and an
invalid evaluation”
TEA doesn’t have statutory authority to add a
high school test
TAA Letter Cont’d
“For 2015 state and federal accountability, if a
student takes the STAAR Algebra I assessment and a
STAAR mathematics grade level assessment, only the
results of the Algebra I assessment will be included in
the accountability calculations for the campus and
the district where the student tested.”
Actions and Options

Commissioner Williams has sent a letter to the
legislature informing them of the Federal
requirement for an additional high school math
assessment

Is considering allowing optional Algebra II EOC or
SAT/ACT or other substitute assessments to meet
high school testing requirements

No guarantee Feds will approve

Middle Schools would be accountable for the
Algebra 1 score and High Schools for the substitute
assessments
Looking Forward…

ATAC begins meeting in December

48,000 students will not graduate this year if they
don’t pass their EOC

Legislative Session begins January 15

Index 2 is TBD for Elementary and Middle Schools

STAAR A is TBD for Index 1, 2, 3, and 4

STAAR Alt 2 is TBD for 1 and 3, NA for 2 and 4

2015 Distinction Designations
27
Distinction Designations that were assigned in 2014 will be assigned in 2015
No significant changes are anticipated for the seven distinctions for campuses
and the postsecondary readiness distinction for districts.

Indicators evaluated in 2014 for each distinction designation will likely
continue to be evaluated in 2015, based on recommendations from
accountability advisory groups.

New indicators may be added to certain distinction designations in 2015,
based on recommendations from accountability advisory groups.

Methodology for determining campus comparison groups will likely remain
unchanged.

Methodology for determining postsecondary readiness distinction
designation for districts will likely remain unchanged.
Index 4 and Districts/High
Schools

Statutory Requirements Call for Additional
Indicators to Be Added

CTE, certifications, new graduates under
foundation.

Final level 2 will still be there (required by law).
Should continue to follow 2+ tests.

Grad rates in law won’t change.

BUT…..3 of the 4 indicators we know about are
lagging

Foundation High School Program Issues will need
to be addressed
