TO THE ADMINISTRATOR ADDRESSED:
2015–16 Reporting Requirements for Community and Student Engagement
This letter is
a reminder that Texas Education Code, §39.0545, requires each district and
charter school to annually evaluate its performance and the performance of each
of its campuses in the area of community and student engagement. Each district
and charter must assign a performance rating of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable to itself and to each of its campuses. Ratings are to
be assigned for overall performance as well as for each of the following
and physical education
and parental involvement
21st Century Workforce Development program
second language acquisition program
digital learning environment
programs for gifted and talented students
each district and charter must indicate whether it and each of its campuses has
complied with statutory reporting and policy requirements. Beginning with the
2014–2015 submission, a new code table,
STATUTORY-REPORTING-AND-POLICY-AND-COMPLIANCE-INDICATOR-CODE (C200), is used
for this indicator. Districts indicate either a “0” or “1”, as defined below;
the field cannot be left blank.
– No (Not In Compliance)
– Yes (In Compliance)
Districts and charters must
designate local committee(s) to determine the criteria used to evaluate
performance and assign community and student engagement ratings and to evaluate
and indicate compliance with statutory reporting and policy requirements.
As with last year, the
locally-assigned district and campus community and student engagement ratings
information will be collected through the Public Education Information
Management System (PEIMS) summer collection on the following timeline:
- The PEIMS Summer submission reflecting the data
from the 2015–16 school year is due on June 23, 2016.
- The PEIMS Summer resubmission reflecting the data
from the 2015–16 school year is due on July 21, 2016.
- For schools operating on a year-round track, the
PEIMS Summer submission is due on June 23, 2016, and the PEIMS Summer
resubmission is due on August 18, 2016.
summarizes the key points of the required PEIMS submission:
district and charter are required to assign locally-determined performance
ratings and compliance statuses to itself and each of its campuses, including
alternative campuses, pre-kindergarten campuses, and alternative education
campuses evaluated under alternative education accountability (AEA) provisions.
(non-instructional) campuses, Disciplinary Alternative Education Program
(DAEP) campuses, Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program (JJAEP) campuses, and facilities operated by
the Texas Juvenile Justice Department are excluded.
submissions must be made through PEIMS; there is no alternative data collection
and charters are required to post the ratings and compliance statuses for the
district and each campus on the school district’s website by August 7, 2016. For
campuses that operate on a year-round calendar, the information should be
posted on the school district website no later than the last day of August.
is required to report the local performance ratings and compliance statuses on its
website no later than October 1, 2016.
