Dropout Recovery Plan Monitoring

The Texas Education Code (TEC) §29.918 states that a district with a high dropout rate, as determined by the commissioner, must submit a plan each year describing how the district or charter school will use the compensatory education allotment and the high school allotment for developing and implementing strategies for dropout prevention.

For the 2019-2020 monitoring year, districts with a longitudinal or annual dropout rate greater than or equal to 10% will submit:  

  • a Dropout Prevention Plan from the District’s Chapter 11 improvement plan;
  • a District created Dropout Prevention Plan with the required elements; or
  • a Memorandum of Understanding with a public junior college to provide a dropout recovery program for the district’s students.  

 A district can determine if it has been identified for DRP monitoring in ISAM the week of November 11, 2019.
