7 AYP State Summary Results (cont.) Of those missing AYP, 52% (113) of districts and 6% (22) of campuses missed AYP solely due to the 1% and/or 2% federal caps in compared to 18% of districts and 1% of campuses in A total of 154 campuses missed the Mathematics Performance indicator, the largest category that failed to Meet AYP standards. The Texas Projection Measure (TPM) was used for 2009 AYP evaluations, and allowed 10% (126) of districts to Meet AYP that would have otherwise missed AYP; and 6% (528) of campuses.

8 AYP Final Release Schedule July 30 th August 6 th District and campus AYP results available on TEASE Accountability web application. Public release of Preliminary AYP results. September 4 th Appeals and Federal Cap Exceptions Deadline. Early December Final 2009 AYP Status released. Preview of NCLB School Report Card (SRC) data, Part I only. January, 2010Public release of NCLB SRC.

9 9 General Considerations for AYP Appeals Appeals are not a data correction opportunity. Appeals are not considered for areas where a district/campus Meets AYP or was Not Evaluated. Appeals are considered for areas where AYP was missed, even if the result would mean the district/campus still misses AYP overall. However, appeals for only one component (Performance or Participation) of an subject area indicator (Reading or Math) that would continue to miss AYP for that indicator are not considered. Appeals are considered for data relevant to the 2009 AYP result, and are not considered for data reported in the prior year for Performance, Participation, Graduation Rate measures.

10 10 General Considerations for AYP Appeals (cont.) Appeal of the USDE-approved Texas AYP Workbook requirements, including the performance or participation indicators based on the results of TAKS-Modified (TAKS- M), TAKS-Alternate (TAKS-Alt), or TELPAS Reading are not favorable for appeal. Appeals related to the Federal Cap, Campus Rankings, or to the performance results due to the federal caps are not considered. Graduation Rate Appeals based on the use of the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) dropout definition cannot be considered.

11 11 General Considerations for AYP Appeals (cont.) Appeals to the AYP Graduation Rate indicator include those: Based on recent immigrant students in U.S. schools for one year or less with limited English proficiency (LEP), or Based on students served by special education with individualized education programs (IEPs) indicating 5-year (or longer) graduation plans. Appeal packet must include sufficient documentation for students developed in their earliest years of inclusion in the Class of 2008 cohort. Students served in special education programs with IEPs developed during their fourth year (or Grade 12) of the longitudinal cohort will not be favorable for appeal.

12 12 General Considerations for AYP Appeals (cont.) New Items in 2009 AYP Guide Special Circumstance: Data quality of first time PEIMS collections. (Page 69) Texas Projection Measure (TPM). (Page 70) Students Ineligible for the Linguistically Accommodated Testing (LAT) of TAKS Reading/English Language Arts. (Page 71)

13 13 General Considerations for AYP Appeals (cont.) New Items in 2009 AYP Guide Appeals Related to Hurricane Ike. (Page 75) Hurricane Ike Displaced Students. Districts and Campuses Closed by Hurricane Ike. Appeals Related to the H1N1 Flu Outbreak. (Page 76) Participation Results Performance Results

14 AYP Exceptions Process School districts registered in the RF Tracker system and school districts with RDSPD that are included in the Directory for Services for the Deaf in Texas were automatically applied an exception to the 1% cap. The federal cap applied to proficient TAKS-Alt results was extended to include an additional number of students up to the statewide 1% cap limit. The statewide 1% cap limit was sufficient to allow every school districts with an exception to include all TAKS-Alt passing students as proficient for AYP (in effect, remove the 1% cap).

15 AYP Exceptions Process AYP 1% Exception and 2% Spill Over 1% Cap Limit on TAKS–Alt passing results… 1% Exception?2% Spill Over? Exceeds (Greater than) 1% Limit Exceptions applied to increase 1% cap No spill over is possible Does Not Exceed (Less than) the 1% Limit Exception is not necessary Spill over beyond the 2% limit may occur Is Equal to the 1% Limit Exception is not necessary No spill over is possible

16 AYP Other Circumstance Exceptions Other circumstance exceptions are allowable and can be submitted as a regular appeal through the online system. The approval of school district requests for exceptions to the federal cap is based on the availability of statewide slots within the cap that allow the state to maintain a 1% cap limit on proficient results from TAKS-Alt. Based on 2009 statewide participation data, the statewide 1% cap limit can allow requests for exceptions based on other circumstances to include all TAKS-Alt passing students as proficient for AYP (in effect, remove the 1% cap).

17 AYP Preview 2010 AYP Performance Standards increase to: 73% in Reading/English language arts 67% in Mathematics Participation Rate and Other Indicator standards remain unchanged. No changes in state assessments used for 2010 AYP. TPM will continue to be used for AYP Annual review of the 2% Federal Cap on TAKS-M.

20 Preview: Use of TPM in AYP Review of AYP Performance Calculation Three steps for AYP Performance calculation: 1.AYP Proficiency Rate (without Growth) 2.Performance Improvement/Safe Harbor (without Growth) 3.AYP Performance Rate with Growth. AYP Performance Rate with Growth: (Students who Met the Passing Standard + Students predicted to meet the Standard) Total Number of Students Tested

21 Preview: Use of TPM in AYP Phase-in for the TAKS–M projection equations (TPM) TPM projections are expected to be reported for TAKS–M tests in school year for Grade 4, 7, and 10 The Federal Cap process will be reviewed to determine the application of 2% Federal Cap on student results that are projected to meet the passing standard based on the TPM.

22 Preview: AYP Federal Caps (cont.) Review of the 1% Federal Cap Students are selected randomly from TAKS-Alt proficient results. Exceptions to the 1% cap will be processed prior to the Preliminary AYP Release in August 2010 for: School districts registered with the TEA Special Education Residential Facilities Tracking System (RF Tracker) for school year School districts included in the Directory for Services for the Deaf in Texas, Regional Day School Programs for the Deaf (RDSPD).

23 Preview: AYP Federal Caps (cont.) Review of the 2% Federal Cap Step 1) TEA prioritizes campuses by grades served and proportion of students with disabilities enrolled. School districts have the opportunity to review and/or modify the campus rankings. Step 2) Student results are selected in order to maximize the number of campuses that Meet AYP beginning with the campuses assigned the highest priority.

24 Preview: AYP Federal Caps (cont.) Reminder: The federal cap relates to counting students as proficient for AYP purposes only and does not limit the number of students that may take an alternate assessment. State policies and procedures related to assessment decision-making are detailed in the TEA publication titled Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) Committee Decision-Making Process for the Texas Assessment Program. A review of the federal cap process will be provided through a Texas Education Telecommunications Network (TETN) session accessible by ESC and school district staff in spring 2010.

25 25 On Oct 28, 2008, final Title I regulations were issued to strengthen the NCLB Act. The regulations were subsequently reviewed by US Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan. On April 1, 2009, the Secretary announced his intent to repeal the requirement that a State revise its Accountability Workbook with respect to its definition of adequate yearly progress (AYP) and submit those revisions for peer review. The Secretary supports the provisions in the October 2008 Title I regulations regarding graduation rate. No other information has been provided by the USDE at this time. AYP Preview: Final Title I Regulations

26 26 AYP Preview: Final Title I Regulations (cont.) Regulations directly related to AYP: A Uniform, Comparable Graduation Rate Timeline to Implement the Four-year Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate Report the Four-year Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate by 2011 AYP; Use for AYP decisions in 2012 AYP. Option to Use an Extended-Year Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate or Rates Permit states to propose one or more extended-year adjusted cohort graduation rates.

29 29 AYP Preview: 2010 Texas AYP Workbook As required by federal regulation, Texas will develop a graduation rate goal and requirements for continuous improvement, i.e. annual targets, for the 2010 AYP Workbook. Texas does not plan to request any further changes to the AYP calculation. The Federal Cap process will be reviewed to determine the application of 2% Federal Cap on student results that are projected to meet the passing standard based on the TPM. Any additional changes related to the Federal Cap process will be detailed in the 2010 AYP Guide.
