Texas NCLB Report Cards
Section 1111(h)(2) of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires each local education agency (LEA) that receives Title I, Part A funding to disseminate specific LEA- and campus-level data to 1) all LEA campuses, 2) parents of all enrolled students, and 3) to make the information widely available through public means such as posting on the internet, distribution to the media, or distribution through public agencies.
To meet this requirement the Texas Education Agency (TEA) provides these statistics at the state level and for each district or campus that is required.
Evaluation of District and Campus Community and Student Engagement Performance
House Bill 5 included a local evaluation requirement or the community engagement component. The community engagement requirement is an opportunity for districts to showcase areas of excellence and success as well as recognize areas in need of improvement and set future goals valued in the community.
TEC 39.0545 requires each district to evaluate and designate a performance rating for the district and each of its campuses in the district based on criteria set by a local committee. The law requires that each district and each campus be assigned a rating of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable in each of the eight factors areas, an overall rating and a rating of compliant or non-compliant regarding this statute.
In PISD we used the previously established Campus and District Site Based Committees to evaluate each campus and the district based on rubrics, modified to reflect our district, provided by Region 10.
