New News! – Appraisal Systems Development of new Texas teacher standards will be completed by the end of 2013 and put out for view January Principal standards and teacher standards are to be in place by early spring so that we can move forward with development of both teacher and principal appraisal systems. A new rubric will be developed for the pilot along with a teacher reflection/self-assessment too, will those pieces be developed into a system The ESEA waiver ties the new appraisal to a full state rollout in 2015/16, eliminating the possibility of a phased rollout. Teacher and Principal appraisal guidelines will be set by May 2 for the waiver Two districts in each ESC region will participate in a pilot of a new teacher appraisal system in the school year. ESCs will deliver the statewide training to all LEAs for the full roll out in

Under key components of the state's NCLB waiver, Texas schools will no longer be designated as having met or made AYP.
NCLB Waiver Instead of federal designations for all schools in Texas, only the lowest performing 15 percent will be identified as Priority or Focus Schools. Those schools will be subject to a series of federally-prescribed interventions.
NCLB Waiver Additionally, Texas school districts will no longer be required to set aside 20 percent of their Title I federal dollars to provide Supplemental Educational Services (SES). A district will now be free to use those funds on academic intervention programs it deems most effective for its students.
NCLB Waiver To request approval to implement these waivers beyond the 2013–2014 school year, Texas must submit to the Department for review and approval, by May 2, 2014, an amended request incorporating final guidelines for teacher and principal evaluation and support systems that meet the requirements of ESEA flexibility, including the use of student growth, as defined in ESEA Flexibility, as a significant factor in determining a teacher’s or principal’s summative evaluation rating.
PBMAS Staging 27
PBMAS Staging 28 TEA is busy identifying the Priority and Focus Schools (bottom 15%). Even though PBMAS staging is not out, districts know they are going to be staged if they have 4s, 3s, and a bunch of 2s, and should begin incorporating PBMAS activities into their TAIS Targeted Intervention Plan.
