2009-10 Academic Excellence
   Indicator System (AEIS)

November 17 TEASE release

 District and campus AEIS reports were posted to TEASE
  on November 17, 2010.

 Email notifications were sent to district superintendents and
  ESC directors.

 The TEASE release provides the materials districts need to
  fulfill publishing and notification requirements for the AEIS.

 The AEIS Guidelines (available on TEASE) provide details
  about district responsibilities.

District Responsibilities

 MUST publish: performance and profile sections of district
  and campus AEIS reports

 MAY publish: Glossary
  (English Glossary will be available December 2, 2010.
  Spanish translation will be available in January 2011.)

 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               14
District Responsibilities (cont.)

 Must be held within 90 calendar days after the November
  17th TEASE release. District winter break days do not
  count towards the 90 days.

 Within 2 weeks after the hearing, the AEIS report must be

District Responsibilities (cont.)

 TEC 39.362 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 2009-10 AEIS
    TAKS (Accommodated )

    Vertical Scale Growth

    Student Success Initiative

    TAKS 2011 Preview

    TAKS Commended 2011 Preview

    4-Year Completion Rate

    5-Year Completion Rate

 Changes to 2009-10 AEIS (cont.)
 TAKS (Accommodated): The 2010 accountability system includes
  performance on TAKS (Accommodated) assessments for all grades and
  subjects. The prior year (2009) results were recalculated to include all
  TAKS (Accommodated) performance. This affects all TAKS indicators,
  for most subjects and grades.
    TAKS by grade:
         Reading/ELA (English and Spanish) grades 3-10

         Mathematics (English and Spanish) grades 3-10

         Writing (English, grades 4 & 7 and Spanish, grade 4)

    TAKS Met 2010 Standard with TPM (Sum of All Grades Tested)
    TAKS Commended Performance (Sum of All Grades Tested)
    Progress of Prior-Year TAKS Failers
    Student Success Initiative
    English Language Learners Progress Indicator
    Texas Success Initiative                                              18
 Changes to 2009-10 AEIS (cont.)
 Vertical Scale Growth:
    TGI continues to be used with the TAKS Progress Indicator,

     but for both CI and the Progress of Prior Year Failers, the TGI
     has been replaced with Vertical Scale Growth (VSG).
    The vertical scale is only available for reading and
     mathematics in grades 3-8, so both CI and the Progress of
     Prior Year Failers can only represent average growth for
     these grades and subjects.
    This means that CI calculations and CI acknowledgment
     under the GPA system only apply to campuses that serve
     grades 4-8.
    Most high schools are no longer eligible for CI
     acknowledgment due to this change from TGI to VSG.
Changes to 2009-10 AEIS (cont.)

 Student Success Initiative: Beginning in 2010, students are no longer
   required to pass grade 3 TAKS reading to be promoted to the next
   grade. Only grades 5 and 8 (reading and mathematics) are shown
   under the student success initiative on the AEIS reports.

 TAKS 2011 Preview: This indicator presents 2010 and 2009
   performance built to reflect the changes that will be implemented for the
   TAKS base indicator in 2011. These are: a) the inclusion of all TAKS-
   M results; b) the inclusion of all TAKS-Alt results; and c) use of TAKS-
   M and TAKS-Alt results for the second administration of reading and
   mathematics in grades 5 and 8.

Changes to 2009-10 AEIS (cont.)

 TAKS Commended 2011 Preview: This new indicator presents 2010
   and 2009 performance of students who met the commended
   performance on reading/ELA and mathematics. It includes all TAKS-M
   and TAKS-Alt results. It has been added because commended
   performance on TAKS reading and mathematics will be evaluated in
   2011 as a requirement for a Recognized or Exemplary rating.

 4-Year Completion Rate: This indicator, formerly known as
   Completion/Student Status Rate was renamed in the 2010 AEIS
   reports. Values are shown for the class of 2009 and 2008. No other
   change was made to this indicator.

Changes to 2009-10 AEIS (cont.)

 5-Year Completion Rate: This is a new indicator. The 5-year
   completion rate for the class of 2008 is the percentage of students from
   a class of beginning 9th graders (from 2004-05) who graduated,
   received a GED, continued in high school, or dropped out within 5
   years or by August 31, 2009. The methodology used to calculate 5-year
   rates is similar to the methodology used to calculate 4-year rates, with
   the exception that students are tracked for an additional year. Thus,
   whereas the 4-year rates for the class of 2008 are based on the
   tracking of students into the fall of 2008, the 5-year rates are based on
   tracking those students into the fall of 2009.

 December 2nd Public Release
 Includes TEASE products such as district and campus AEIS
  reports, Comparable Improvement (CI) reports, and Guidelines.

      Region reports
      State report
      A separate report of how mobile students performed (state-
       level only)
      Data download (includes a masking explanation)
      Additional CI information
      Multi-Year data
      Links to prior-year reports
      Links to grade level Progress of Prior Year Failers
      Glossary

2009-10 School Report Cards

 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 December 7th.

 Superintendents and principals will be notified of availability
  via email.

 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 61.1021).

 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)
Additional CIP Requirements
(formerly known as Technical Assistance Teams)

   A campus is included on the 2010-11 list of campuses
    with Additional CIP requirements if the following
    conditions occur:

    o The campus was rated Academically Acceptable
      (under standard procedures) or AEA: Academically
      Acceptable (under AEA procedures);
    o The 2009-10 performance does not meet the 2011
      AA or AEA: AA accountability standards.

Additional CIP Requirements

 Analyses use 2008-09 and 2009-10 TAKS results; Class of
  2008 and Class of 2009 completion rates, and 2007-08 and
  2008-09 annual dropout rates.

 TAKS performance for both years is built to reflect the
  changes that will be implemented for the TAKS base
  indicator in 2011. These are:
   a)   the inclusion of all TAKS-M results; and
   b)   the inclusion of all TAKS-ALT results.

     Additional CIP Requirements
 Campuses that meet the 2011 accountability standards
  using the Exceptions Provision, or Required Improvement
  are not included on the CIP list. (Campuses that used
  exceptions in 2010 cannot use the same exceptions to
  avoid identification for 2010-11.)

 The Texas Projection Measure (TPM) equations used for
  2010 accountability are not applied to the 2010-11 CIP
  identification process.

Additional CIP Requirements

    Annual dropout rates and completion rates are evaluated as
     they were reported in the 2009 and 2010 accountability cycles.
     No substitution of district completion rates for secondary
     campuses without their own completion data was done.

    English Language Learners (ELL) Progress Indicator is not
     evaluated under standard procedures for CIP campus
     determinations, because in 2011 this indicator is a
     requirement for earning Recognized or Exemplary ratings; it is
     not a requirement for achieving an Academically Acceptable
     rating. Under 2011 AEA procedures, the ELL Progress
     Indicator is used in the determination of AEA: Academically
     Acceptable ratings, however, it cannot be the sole reason for
     an AEA: Academically Unacceptable rating.
      Additional CIP Requirements
 Districts with identified campuses were notified on November
  17th through TEASE following the posting of AEIS reports are
  on TEASE.

 Links are provided from the CIP Campus list to the AEIS reports.

 If the campus was rated by the Standard Accountability System,
  the campus name will link the user to the 2010 AEIS Report for
  that campus. The 2011 Preview of the TAKS base indicator,
  "TAKS Met 2010 Standard including TAKS-M and TAKS-Alt," is
  the data that was used to determine if the campus was placed
  on the 2010-11 List of Campuses with Additional Campus
  Improvement Plan (CIP) Requirements.

 Contact Performance Reporting at (512) 463-9704 or
  performance.reporting@tea.state.tx.us for questions
  regarding methodology for identifying campuses with
  additional CIP requirements.
 Contact Program Monitoring and Interventions (PMI) at
  (512) 463-5226 or pmidivision@tea.state.tx.us for
  questions regarding intervention requirements for these

Public Education Grant (PEG) Program

 A statutorily-mandated program of school choice
  (TEC Ch. 29, Subchapter G, 29.201-29.205)

 Partially aligned with accountability ratings, but not fully
  aligned with the state system, AYP, or the Campuses with
  Additional CIP requirements.

 Statute requires districts to notify parents of the
  2011-12 list by February 1, 2011.

 The PEG list is based on 2008-2010 performance, but is
  effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

 Schools are included on the list if:

  (1) 50 percent or fewer of students* passed:
      (a) Any TAKS reading/English language arts, writing,
          mathematics, science, or social studies test,
          summed across the grades tested at the school;
      (b) In any two of the three years: 2008, 2009, or 2010
(2) The school was rated Academically Unacceptable in
  2008, 2009, or 2010.

* Student groups are not evaluated.
 Calendar and Notification
 Planned release date is December 9 via TEASE to all
  districts with one or more campuses on the list.

 List will be posted to agency correspondence website on
  December 16.

 An online FAQ is available through the Division of
  Performance Reporting Resources link

2011 AEA Campus Registration Process,
       Registered AEC List, and
   AEA At-Risk Registration Criterion

2011 AEA Campus Registration Process
      and Registered AEC List
   The 2011 AEA campus registration process was
    conducted September 8-22, 2010, via the TEASE
    Accountability website.
   By September 24, 2010, response emails were sent to
    campuses that submitted rescission and/or registration
    forms. All 2011 AEA campus registration forms
    submitted were approved.
   The 2011 Registered AEC List is available on the AEA
    website at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/aea.

    2011 AEA At-Risk Registration
   Each registered AEC must have at least 75% at-risk student
    enrollment or be eligible to use either the Prior-Year PEIMS
    At-Risk Data or New Campus safeguard to be evaluated
    under 2011 AEA procedures and receive an AEA rating on
    July 29, 2011. At-risk enrollment is verified through
    2010-11 PEIMS fall enrollment data.
   In April after the at-risk registration criterion is applied, the
    Final 2011 Registered AEC List will be developed and
    posted on the AEA website in May 2011. This list will
    contain the AECs that will receive a 2011 AEA rating.
   After the Final 2011 Registered AEC List is developed, the
    list of charter operators that will be rated under 2011 AEA
    procedures will be posted on the AEA website in May 2011.
  2011 AEA At-Risk Registration
        Criterion (cont.)
 The PEIMS Edit+ reports below may be helpful when
  analyzing at-risk student enrollment data. These reports may
  be run at the district and campus levels.
    PRF5D003 – Student Roster. Lists all students enrolled
     by grade. The ‘AT RS’ column indicates whether a
     student is at-risk.
    PRF5D018 – At-Risk Students by Sex, Ethnicity, and
     Grade. One-page report of at-risk students by sex,
     ethnicity, and grade.

   Commended Performance Indicator Requirements

In 2011, Commended Performance on TAKS reading/ELA and mathematics
    will be an additional indicator.

 Recognized Standard. 15% commended on Reading/ELA
                        15% commended on mathematics

 Exemplary Standard.     25% commended on Reading/ELA
                         25% commended on mathematics

 Student Groups.        All Students (regardless of size)
                Economically Disadvantaged

Standard Accountability Decisions
    for 2010 and 2011 (cont.)
Use of TPM in 2011

As stated in a July 8, 2010 letter from the commissioner to all district superintendents,
proposals to be considered regarding the use of TPM in 2011 accountability include:

Suspension of the use of TPM for accountability ratings.
Continued use of TPM in state accountability, but only for districts that elect
  to use it.

Modifications to the calculation of TPM and/or its use to include additional
  safeguards, such as:

     •applying performance floors,
     •counting each student who fails but is projected to pass as a fraction of a passer,
     •prohibiting TPM to be used for the same measure in a subsequent year,
     •limiting the number of measures for which TPM can be used in a given year, and
     •limiting which rating categories can use it.                                    47

December 1, 2010      Transition plan for the new assessment and
                      accountability/accreditation system is submitted
                      to the governor, lieutenant governor, other key
                      legislative staff and the Legislative Budget
                      Board (LBB).

July 29, 2011         2011 ratings are the last issued under the current
                      accountability system.

2011-2012             Assignment of performance ratings are suspended

                      New academic accountability system is developed
                      with input from the educator advisory groups on the
                      timelines specified in the transition plan.
        HB 3 Implementation (cont.)
          Exclusions to the NCES Dropout Definition

HB3 defined certain exclusions that the TEA must make when
  evaluating dropout and completion rates for accreditation and
  performance ratings. The exclusions can be grouped into five
      Previous dropouts;
      ADA ineligible dropouts;
      Court-ordered GEDs, not earned;
      Incarcerated in facilities not served by Texas public
       schools; and
      Refugees and asylees.

        HB 3 Implementation (cont.)
         Exclusions to the NCES Dropout Definition
 HB3 explicitly requires use of the current NCES dropout definition
   until 2011-12. TEA is interpreting the 2011-12 effective date to
   mean the 2010-11 dropouts collected in the 2011-12 year.

 The 2009-10 dropouts collected in the 2010-11 year (2011 ratings)
   will be processed using current definitions with no new exclusions
