Community & student engagement ratings

As outlined by House Bill 5 passed in 2013 by the 83rd Texas Legislature, TEC §39.0545 requires districts to evaluate the performance of the district and each campus in regard to community and student engagement. The district and each campus must be assigned one of four performance ratings - Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable or Unacceptable - in overall performance, as well as the following categories:

  • Fine arts,
  • Wellness and physical education,
  • Community and parental involvement,
  • 21st Century Workforce Development program,
  • Second language acquisition program,
  • Digital learning environment,
  • Dropout prevention strategies, and
  • Educational programs for gifted and talented students.

Criteria used in the self-evaluation was determined by a local committee, but also provided the flexibility for campuses to identify and evaluate additional criteria.
