Community & Student Engagement Accountability Rating

(TEC 39.0545-Section 46 of HB 5)

10.1.2014 Statewide Results for Community & Student Engagement
One of the major changes made to the accountability portion of House Bill 5 was the creation of the Community and Student Engagement Accountability Rating, which requires each district to evaluate the district's performance and the performance of each campus within the district on community and student engagement (8 factors) and in policy compliance (1 factor). Each district will now be required to assign itself and each of its campuses a rating of exemplary, recognized, acceptable or unacceptable for both overall performance and for each of the 9 evaluation factors. This new accountability rating allows for an evaluation of the level and quality of engagement between the community and its students and for districts, campuses and charter schools to showcase where they are excelling and where there is room for improvement. The Community and Student Engagement rating also provides an opportunity to highlight the values within each district/campus/charter as well as to tell the story of what is happening in districts and on campuses throughout the school year. This rating must be submitted to the TEA and made publicly available by August 8 of each year. 

Nine Factors to be Evaluated
Districts/campuses/charters will be required to evaluate performance under the following 9 factors:

  • Fine Arts
  • Wellness & Physical Education
  • Community & Parent Involvement
  • 21st Workforce Development Program
  • 2nd Language Acquisition 
  • Digital Language Acquisition Program
  • Dropout Prevention Strategies
  • Educational Programs for GT Students
  • Compliance with Statutory Reporting & Policy Requirements
