Can DMAC help my school meet the requirements of HB4545?
Absolutely! Currently, schools can generate reports in State Assessment to identify a list of students who are in need of accelerated instruction based on their STAAR scores. The Data Export application will also help identify students who were absent or did not take a test in the spring of 2021. Once your groups are identified, Student Portfolio, FormWorks and TEKScore can be used to document and assess growth over time.
You can always give the DMAC Help Desk a call at (866) 988-6777 or email us at support@dmac-solutions.net with any questions.

ESC 7 Accountability team members stand ready and able to support your school improvement efforts. Well before ratings are released, our team is hard at work providing assistance to support everything from data analysis to root cause determination.
 
Upon identification (state or federal), campus teams- consisting of (at a minimum) the Principal and Principal Supervisor- receive training on the Effective Schools Framework (ESF), which includes the following levers. Components of the training are primarily conducted in a Face-2-Face setting, with additional information being provided using virtual venues.
 
1.1.  Effective Leaders
2.1   Effective, Well-Supported Teachers
3.1   Positive School Culture
4.1   High Quality Curriculum
5.1   Objective-driven Daily Lesson Plans with Formative Assessments 
5.3   Data-driven instruction
 
Identified campuses will also participate in an ESF Diagnostic- a collaborative analysis that illustrates the status of campus practices in relation to their alignment with the Framework. Findings are presented as Areas of Strength and Opportunities for Growth, and are used to guide campus decision-making regarding the focus areas for school improvement.
 
Schools are also provided with individualized support to appropriately engage in required accountability interventions. This includes assistance with data analysis, team meeting facilitation, and development of required Targeted Improvement Plans, Turnaround Plans, and School Improvement Grant requirements.
