1 System Safeguards and Campus Improvement Ty Duncan@instructionalle
2 Intervention Requirements for all Campuses rated Met Standard that Failed to Meet One or More System Safeguard Measures or Targets Campuses rated Met Standard or Met Alternative Standard that failed to meet one or more system safeguard measures or targets are required to utilize the campus leadership team to engage in the Texas Accountability Intervention System (TAIS) continuous improvement process of data analysis, needs assessment, and development, implementation, and monitoring of an improvement plan designed to address the low performance identified by the system safeguards. The campus will include the improvement initiatives and strategies it will employ in the campus improvement plan (CIP) required by Texas Education Code (TEC) § The CIP will be retained on the campus, but is subject to a request for submission of the sections of the CIP that include the improvement initiatives and strategies that address low performance on the system safeguard measures and targets missed. The agency will notify the campus if the CIP is chosen for submission.
3 Intervention Requirements for all Districts rated Met Standard that Failed to Meet One or More System Safeguard Measures or TargetsDistricts rated Met Standard or Met Alternative Standard that failed to meet one or more system safeguard measures or targets are required to utilize the district leadership team to engage in the TAIS continuous improvement process referred to above to develop, implement, and monitor an improvement plan that addresses the low performance identified by the system safeguards. If the district is staged for interventions in the Performance-Based Monitoring (PBM) system, the improvement initiatives and strategies addressing missed system safeguards will be included in the targeted improvement plan that is required to address low performance on PBM indicators. If the district is not staged for PBM interventions, the improvement initiatives and strategies addressing missed system safeguards will be included in the district improvement plan required by TEC § The district improvement plan will be retained locally, subject to a request for submission of the sections of the DIP that include the improvement initiatives and strategies that address low performance on the system safeguard measures and targets missed.
4 Intervention Requirements for all Districts rated Met Standard that Failed to Meet One or More System Safeguard Measures or TargetsAlthough submission and progress reporting are not required due to failing to meet standard for system safeguards only, campuses and districts missing multiple system safeguards may be contacted by the TEA and/or the Texas Center for District and School Support (TCDSS) regarding implementation of actions addressing low performance and for reports on the effectiveness of improvement initiatives and strategies.
5 System SafeguardsWith the PI framework, poor performance in one subject or one student group does not result in an Improvement Required Rating.System safeguards are added to ensure that poor performance in one area or one student group is not masked in the performance index.Texas Accountability Intervention System (TAIS)
7 PurposeEnsure system disaggregates performance by student group, performance level, subject area, and gradeTarget for disaggregated results meet and exceed federal requirementsPerformance TargetParticipation RateGraduation rate targets and improvementLimit on Alternative Assessments
8 ImpactResults are reported for any cell that meets minimum size criteria.Failure to meet the safeguard target for any reported cell must be addressedPerformance on the safeguard indicators are incorporated into the Texas Accountability Intervention System (TAIS)
9 There is no “death by single cell” but there is “paperwork by single cell.”
13 Share slide and read quote. This is a visual reminder that the purpose of the comprehensive needs assessment and campus improvement plans is to focus efforts on the identified needs and priorities in order to really target school improvement efforts.It is really about moving from random acts to focused acts and closing achievement gaps.“We want to gather and analyze data that will help us understand the system that produces the results we are getting…from random acts of improvement to focused improvement that centers on… improving results for students.” Victoria BernhardtNo Child Left Behind Program Series: Improvement Plans
14 To this! No Child Left Behind Program Series: Improvement Plans This is what is expected…. The district, campuses, staff, initiatives, strategies, resources, etc. all focused in the same direction…. Driving towards excellence and focused with clear purpose.No Child Left Behind Program Series: Improvement Plans
15 No Child Left Behind Program Series: Improvement Plans When we look at this graphic, we clearly see that ‘Planning’ is a process. It begins and ends, in each cycle, with the comprehensive needs assessment, yet because the needs assessment process continues all year long, the needs drive the planning as it begins, the periodic review of plans throughout the year, and the evaluation of the plan at the end of the year to determine needs and begin the cycle again.We will examine this graphic in more detail later.No Child Left Behind Program Series: Improvement Plans
16 State Federal Texas Education Code No Child Left Behind State planning is mandated through Texas Education Code, Section which charges the principal and site-based decision making team with an annual improvement process, including the development, review and revision of the improvement plan focused on increasing academic achievement. Statute emphasizes the need to address all students, all student groups, and special programs. Section (f) requires LEAs to ensure that all federal planning requirements are addressed.Federal planning requirements are embedded in each of the programs as outlined in No Child Left Behind and hold us accountable for each program’s intended beneficiaries to make sure that these student groups are successful.No Child Left Behind Program Series: Improvement Plans

It begins with #1 forming the planning team, #2 conducting the CNA, #3 developing/revising the improvement plan, #4 linking the plan to funding sources, #5 implementing the plan, and #6 using formative and summative measure to evaluate the plan as part of the needs assessment.Link the Plan toFederal, State, and LocalFunding SourcesNo Child Left Behind Program Series: Improvement Plans
18 State: Improvement Plan Requirements Quiz Me…Q. Who’s responsible for the CIP?Campus Principal and SBDMQ. Each campus is required to have a policy and administrative procedures?No, each district must do so.Q. Who must serve on the committee?Professional staff, parents, community members, business/industry representatives.Q. How many public meetings must be held per year?A. At least oneUse this slide to debrief with a Q and A format.No Child Left Behind Program Series: Improvement Plans

24 No Child Left Behind Program Series: Improvement Plans Tables need a chart paper and marker.We talked earlier about the CNA in this cycle.We will start by looking at each of the nine part of the planning cycle in broad terms. Please turn to page 13 in your book. Remember that the context for this page is ‘developing an improvement plan.’We’re going to begin by ‘A-pointing’ someone at your table to be the first spokesperson. Ready…fingers in the air…. On the count of three you will ‘a-point’! 1,2,3.This person will read from page 13, #1 CNA and the bullets. Anyone at the table may ask for clarification from the table team. If clarity is still needed, write it on the chart. We will clarify all chart notes at the end.You will have 15 minutes to process the page.When table are finished, clarify chart notes. Have other tables provide clarification, before doing so as the trainer.No Child Left Behind Program Series: Improvement Plans
