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.

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.
