Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS)
14 November 10 TEASE release District and campus AEIS reports were posted to TEASE on Thursday, November 10, notifications were sent to district superintendents and ESC directors. The TEASE release provides the information that districts need to fulfill publishing and notification requirements for the AEIS. The AEIS Guidelines (available on TEASE) provide details about district responsibilities.
15 District Responsibilities PUBLISHING MUST publish: Performance and profile sections of district and campus AEIS reports MAY publish: Glossary (English Glossary will be available November 17, Spanish translation will be available in January 2012.) MUST ADD and publish: o Campus performance objectives o Report of violent or criminal incidents o Information from THECB about performance of students in postsecondary institutions

17 District Responsibilities AEIS AND THE DISTRICT WEBSITE TEC requires districts with websites to post the most current accountability ratings, AEIS reports, and School Report Cards (SRC) not later than the 10th day after the first day of instruction of each school year. There is no requirement in this statute that district websites must be updated with new AEIS reports after the 10th instructional day. However, districts are encouraged to do so. See our FAQ about this requirement at:

Changes to AEIS Preview indicators removed Since there will be no ratings in 2012, there are no preview indicators in the AEIS report. Male/Female columns removed In order to accommodate additional columns for race and ethnicity, two columns, Male and Female are no longer included on the printed AEIS reports; however, the data for these two categories of students are still available through the data download. 25
Changes to AEIS Section III Additions The third section of the AEIS reports has an additional column, LEP with Services to complement the column LEP with No Services. The ELL Progress Indicator was also added to this section. State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF) State revenue (under Total Revenues) includes amounts received from the SFSF which are distributed under the Federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of The SFSF amount for each district is shown in the footnote block found on the last page of the districts report.

School Report Cards
29 Overview The School Report Card (SRC) contains a subset of the performance, staff, and financial data in the AEIS reports. SRCs are accessible through the AEIS public website. There is no separate TEASE release of the SRCs. Target release date is Wednesday, December 7, Superintendents and principals will be notified of availability via .
30 District Responsibilities As required by statute, these report cards must be disseminated to the parent, guardian, conservator, or other person having lawful control of each student at the campus. Must be disseminated to parents within six weeks after districts are notified by TEA. (Winter break does not count.) There are various ways to achieve the distribution requirements (see TAC ). Supplemental materials are provided by TEA o Sample cover letters to parents (English and Spanish) o Definitions (English and, as soon as available, Spanish)
Campuses With Additional Campus Improvement Plan (CIP) Requirements 31
32 Additional CIP Requirements For 2011 and 2012 there will be no additional CIP requirements of a campus rated Academically Acceptable. In prior years, campuses rated Academically Acceptable that would be rated Academically Unacceptable using accountability standards for the subsequent year were subject to additional CIP requirements. Since no state accountability ratings will be issued in 2012, the identification of 2011 campuses at risk of a 2012 low rating cannot be determined. Similarly, since there will be no campuses identified as Academically Acceptable in 2012, the pool of campuses to screen for low ratings in 2013 cannot be determined.
33 Public Education Grant (PEG) Program
34 Overview A statutorily-mandated program of school choice (TEC Ch. 29, Subchapter G, §§ ) Partially aligned with accountability ratings, but not fully aligned with the state system or AYP. Statute requires districts to notify parents of the list by February 1, The PEG list is based on 2009, 2010, and 2011 performance, but is effective for the school year only.
