13 2008 Accountability Manual

14 13 Exceptions Provision What Has Changed for 2008 Campuses and districts may now use the provision to achieve a Recognized or an Exemplary rating. Districts and campuses will be eligible to receive four possible exceptions in order to achieve the Academically Acceptable rating or four possible exceptions in order to achieve the Recognized rating. The minimum performance floor values are altered for mathematics and science for the Academically Acceptable rating.

15 14 Exceptions Provision (continued) What Remains Unchanged The Exceptions Provision will continue to be applied to only the 25 TAKS measures (5 subjects multiplied by 5 groups: All Students, African American, Hispanic, White, and Economically Disadvantaged). The Exceptions Provision will not be applicable to either Completion Rate I or Annual Dropout Rate indicators. The Exception Provision cannot elevate a rating more than one rating category. An exception cannot be used for the same measure for two consecutive years.

16 15 Exceptions Provision (continued) Use for Academically Acceptable or Recognized The campus or district must meet a minimum performance floor to be eligible to use this provision. The floors vary by subject and rating category, as shown in the following table.

17 16 Exceptions Provision (continued) Minimum Performance Floors Academically AcceptableRecognized Mathematics and Science No more than 10 percentage points below standards All Subjects No more than 5 percentage points below standard Reading/ELA, Writing, and Social Studies No more than 5 percentage points below standards

A minimum of 10 assessment measures must be evaluated in order to be eligible to use the one exception. The campus or district must meet a minimum performance floor that is 5 points below the Exemplary standard. Because the Exemplary standard is 90% for all subjects for 2008 and beyond, the floor is 85%.
