2009 At-Risk Registration Criterion and Charters evaluated under Alternative Education Accountability (AEA) Procedures
2009 At-Risk Registration Criterion Each registered Alternative Education Campus (AEC) must have at least 75% at-risk student enrollment verified through 2008-09 PEIMS fall enrollment data in order to be evaluated under 2009 AEA procedures and receive an AEA rating on July 31, 2009. Two safeguards have been incorporated for 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 2008. 2. 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.
2009 At-Risk Registration Criterion (continued) In April, letters will be mailed to the registered AECs that do not meet the 2009 at-risk registration criterion informing them that AEA registration has been rescinded and the AEC will be evaluated under 2009 standard accountability procedures. The Final 2009 Registered AEC list will be posted on the AEA website in May 2009. This list will contain the AECs that will receive a 2009 AEA rating. A list of the charter operators that will be rated under 2009 AEA procedures will also be posted on the AEA website in May 2009.
Charters evaluated under AEA Procedures Charters that operate only registered AECs are evaluated automatically under AEA procedures. Charters that operate both standard campuses and registered AECs have the option to be evaluated under AEA procedures if at least 50% of the charters students are enrolled at registered AECs. TEA contacts the charter to obtain its preference. Charters submits preference via TEASE Accountability. If a preference cannot be obtained, then the charter is evaluated under standard accountability procedures. If fewer than 50% of the charters students are enrolled at registered AECs, then the charter is evaluated under standard accountability procedures
