At the district level, exceptions were used most often for science and mathematics.

10 Ratings Highlights (cont.) About Exceptions - Districts In 2008, 19 of the Recognized districts are large (10,000 or more enrolled) compared to only 2 districts of this size earning Recognized in Only 1 of the 19 large Recognized districts used an exception to achieve the Recognized rating. The Exceptions Provision will be examined by the accountability advisory groups in spring 2009 to determine whether modifications are needed for the 2009 ratings.

11 Ratings Highlights (cont.) School Leaver Provision (SLP) – District Impact (Standard Procedures) 3 districts used the SLP for Dropout Rate only. 80 districts used the SLP for Completion rate only. 6 districts used the SLP for both Dropout and Completion Rates. 6 districts used the SLP for excessive underreported students.

12 Ratings Highlights (cont.) School Leaver Provision – District Impact (Standard Procedures) By using SLP 95 districts were able to achieve a higher rating: 76 districts went from Academically Unacceptable to Academically Acceptable. 3 districts went from Academically Unacceptable to Recognized. 15 districts went from Academically Acceptable to Recognized. 1 district went from Academically Acceptable to Exemplary.

13 Ratings Highlights (cont.) School Leaver Provision – Campus Impact (Standard Procedures) 27 campuses used the SLP for Dropout Rate only. 115 campuses used the SLP for Completion rate only. 0 campuses used the SLP for both Dropout and Completion Rates.

14 Ratings Highlights (cont.) School Leaver Provision – Campus Impact (Standard Procedures) By using SLP 142 campuses were able to achieve a higher rating: 133 campuses went from Academically Unacceptable to Academically Acceptable. 4 campuses went from Academically Unacceptable to Recognized. 4 campuses went from Academically Acceptable to Recognized. 1 campus went from Recognized to Exemplary.

15 Ratings Highlights (cont.) School Leaver Provision – Charter District Impact (AEA Procedures) 9 charters used the SLP for Dropout Rate only. 6 charters used the SLP for Completion Rate II only. 15 charters used the SLP for both Dropout and Completion Rates.

16 Ratings Highlights (cont.) School Leaver Provision – Campus Impact (AEA Procedures) 19 AECs used the SLP for Dropout Rate only. 26 AECs used the SLP for Completion Rate II only. 20 AECs used the SLP for both Dropout and Completion Rates.

17 Ratings Highlights (cont.) Completion Rate I Trends Completion Rate I, used for Standard Procedures, declined for all students and for each student group between the class of 2007 and the class of All Students rate declined by 2.2% African American rate declined by 3.8% Hispanic rate declined by 3.0% White rate declined by 0.9% Economically Disadvantaged rate declined by 3.4%

18 17 School Leaver Provision in 2009 This provision will no longer apply in 2009 and may be the cause for lower district and campus ratings for: Completion Rate I Annual Dropout Rate (Gr. 7-8) (Standard Procedures) Completion Rate II Underreported students Based on final decisions released in April 2008, this provision will apply to the Annual Dropout Rate (Gr. 7-12) indicator under AEA Procedures, but will be reviewed in spring 2009 by the advisory groups.

19 18 School Leaver Provision in 2009 (cont.) Districts that used the School Leaver Provision need to pay special attention to the quality of leaver data that will be submitted in fall This information will be the basis for dropout and completer indicators used in 2009 ratings.

20 19 TAT and the School Leaver Provision Campuses that avoid being rated Academically Unacceptable in 2008 due to the application of the School Leaver Provision will be subject to technical assistance team (TAT) intervention requirements in the school year. This is because campuses rated Academically Acceptable in 2008 are identified for technical assistance teams (TATs) if their 2008 accountability results do not meet the 2009 accountability standards.

30 29 AEA Decisions for 2009 and Beyond TAKS Progress Indicator The TAKS Progress Indicator continues to include grade 8 science and the TAKS (Accommodated) results described on slide 27. The AEA: Academically Acceptable standard will increase by five percentage points to 50% in 2009 and will remain at 50% for 2010.

31 30 AEA Decisions for 2009 and Beyond (cont.) Annual Dropout Rate (Grades 7-12) and Completion Rate II In spring 2009, the accountability advisory groups will review various options and make recommendations to the commissioner about the leaver indicators evaluated under AEA procedures for 2009 and beyond.

32 AEA Campus Registration Process In 2009, the AEA campus registration process will be conducted online using the Texas Education Agency Secure Environment (TEASE) Accountability website. The AEA campus registration process opens September 10, An notification will be sent to all superintendents stating that alternative education campuses (AECs) rated under 2008 AEA procedures will be re-registered automatically in 2009 subject to the 75% at-risk registration criterion.

33 AEA Campus Registration Process (cont.) AECs wishing to rescind AEA registration must complete an electronic AEA Campus Rescission Form. AECs requesting AEA registration must complete an electronic AEA Campus Registration Form. AECs for which 2008 AEA registration was rescinded due to not meeting the at-risk registration criterion must submit an electronic AEA Campus Registration Form if the AEC wishes to request AEA campus registration in AEA rescission and registration forms submitted via TEASE Accountability must be printed and maintained locally as official documentation of AEA campus registration requests.

34 AEA Campus Registration Process (cont.) The AEA registration process closes September 24, 2008, at 1:00 p.m. C.D.T. AEA rescissions and registrations will not be processed after this time. When finalized, the list of 2009 Registered AECs will be available on the AEA website at:

35 34 AEA At-Risk Registration Criterion Each registered AEC must have a minimum percentage of at-risk students enrolled on the AEC verified through current-year PEIMS fall enrollment data in order to be evaluated under AEA procedures and receive an AEA rating. Two safeguards have been incorporated for those AECs that are below the at-risk requirement. 1. Prior-Year PEIMS At-Risk Data Safeguard: If a registered AEC does not meet the at-risk criterion in 2009, then it remains under AEA if the AEC had at least 75% at-risk enrollment in New Campus Safeguard: If a new campus is registered for evaluation under AEA procedures, then the AEC is not required to meet the at-risk criterion in its first year of operation. This safeguard provides an accommodation for new campuses with no prior-year data.

36 35 AEA At-Risk Registration Criterion (cont.) The AEA at-risk registration criterion was 65% in 2006, 70% in 2007, and 75% in 2008 and beyond. AEA registration is rescinded for AECs that do not meet the at-risk registration criterion or utilize the safeguards. As a result, the AECs are evaluated under standard accountability procedures. Below is a history of the number of campuses not meeting the at-risk registration criterion that were shifted to standard accountability procedures. Rescinding AEA registration also impacts the number of charters evaluated under AEA – 17 AECs and 8 charters 2007 – 24 AECs and 12 charters 2008 – 17 AECs and 5 charters

37 36 AEA At-Risk Registration Criterion (cont.) The PEIMS Edit+ reports below may be helpful when analyzing at-risk student enrollment data. These reports may be run at the district and campus levels. PRF5D003 – Student Roster. Lists all students enrolled by grade. The AT RS column indicates whether a student is at-risk. PRF5D018 – At-Risk Students by Sex, Ethnicity, and Grade. One-page report of at-risk students by sex, ethnicity, and grade. PRF5D025 – At-Risk Roster by Grade. Lists at-risk students by grade. Other student demographics are included on this report.
