Community and Student Engagement

Texas Education Code §39.0545, as added by House Bill 5, 83rd Texas Legislature, requires all districts to evaluate the district’s performance and the performance of each campus in community and student engagement. All school districts and charters are required to assign a performance rating of Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, or Unacceptable to the district and each campus for overall performance and the following categories:

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

Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) Reports

from the TEA website:

The Division of Performance Reporting is responsible for developing the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) reports, which pull together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas every year. These reports also provide extensive information on staff, finances, programs, and demographics for each school and district.

Accountability Ratings

From the information contained in the AEIS, the division also develops and implements the state Accountability Rating system used to rate Texas public schools and school districts. The state accountability rating system includes campuses and districts rated under standard and Alternative Education Accountability (AEA)procedures.

Texas defines performance ratings as:

  • Met Standard: Assigned to districts and campuses that meet performance index targets on all indexes for which they have performance data in an academic year.
  • Met Alternative Standard: Assigned to charter operators and alternative education campuses (AECs) evaluated under alternative education accountability (AEA) provisions that meet modified performance index targets on all indexes for which they have performance data in an academic year.
  • Improvement Required: Assigned to a district or campus that did not meet one or more performance index targets in an academic year.

School Report Card

This is a report required by the Texas Legislature and prepared by the Texas Education Agency. It is to be sent to the parent or guardian of every child enrolled in the public schools. The report provides information concerning student performance as well as information concerning expenditures, average class size, and student/teacher ratios.State law requires that the information be provided for the state, the district, the school, and a group of schools similar to our school. Where possible, the information must be reported by ethnicity and socio-economic status of the students and must include at least two years of results.

Most recent School Report Card can be found here.

FYI: This search will produce the School Report Card for a selected school. You may choose either an HTML report to view online or a print-ready PDF file which can easily be saved to a computer or diskette and printed.

Child Find

Early intervention is very important, so public schools provide services to children with disabilities beginning at age three for speech, physical, mental, and emotional disorders. Services for vision and hearing impairments begin at birth.

Children below the age of three with other development delays are served through Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) Projects. For more information, call ECI at 903-757-8194 or Gregg County Special Education Shared Services at 903-981-0591.
