The first report the campus sends home is not a report card but a status report. Does the accountability information need to be provided at that time? The statutory language is: The first report sent that applies to all students and contains an evaluation of their academic performance in all subjects should be used.
Does TEA have a sample letter with a brief and clear explanation that we can use?
No, however a complete explanation of all aspects of the system is contained in the Accountability Manualin other explanatory documents posted on the Accountability Rating System site, and on the Frequently Asked Questions site. Districts are also free to prepare their own simplified explanatory materials.
My district has submitted an appeal for the state accountability rating for my campus. Do I have to include the accountability rating in the notification if there is a chance that it will be updated following the appeals process?
The statute requires that districts provide the most recent performance rating in the notification. For the —19 school year, the state accountability rating released publicly on August 15,is the most recent performance rating.
The district can include the information that the rating has been appealed in the notification. If the appeal is granted, the district may wish to provide a follow-up notification. Notice on District Web Site Q: What specifically is " This is the 10th school day, or actual instructional day.
It does not include weekends, holidays, or other non-instructional days. I have the accountability ratings for this year which I can post, but the school report cards aren't available yet. How can I post them? Statute specifically requires that the district post " The posting should be revised later in the year as more current information becomes available.
Districts are free to note the date of a posted report and the approximate date of future revisions. Which reports need to be posted on our website at the beginning of the —19 school year?
For —19, districts must post the —17 TAPR for the district, the —17 SRC for each campus, the current accountability rating and distinction designations, as of August 15,for each campus, and an explanation of the school accountability ratings such as the one page overview of the state accountability system.
