Met Standard and Met Alternative Standard but Missed One or More System Safeguards 

Districts and campuses at this level of intervention do not have required ISAM submissions but should engage in the TAIS that results in a Campus Improvement Plan* that addresses any missed system safeguards.   

*While TEC §11.253 requires all campuses to develop a comprehensive campus improvement plan, the targeted improvement plan required by TEC §39.106 is specifically designed to address areas of low performance identified by the state accountability rating system.
