Local Education Agency Public Reporting

Reports and Determinations

Each spring, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) produces a District Profile of SPP Indicators for each local
education agency (LEA) in the state. The district profile publicly reports the LEA's performance against the state targets for Indicators 1-14 in the State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR) for a given year.

SPP Data Collection and COVID-19 Information related to the SPP data collection and COVID-19 can be found on the COVID-19 Support: Special Education webpage.

Local Education Agency Determinations

TEA is required to make annual determinations about the performance of local education agencies (LEAs) using four categories.

  • Meets Requirements
  • Needs Assistance
  • Needs Intervention
  • Needs Substantial Intervention

LEAs receive determination level assignments in the Results Driven Accountability (RDA) framework based on combined indicator performance levels derived from the federally required elements and the State defined elements contained in each LEA's public RDA report.

As implied, these categories represent various intensities of required technical assistance and/or intervention.

Federally Required Elements

States must consider four federally required elements in assigning a determination level for local education agencies (LEAs).

  • 2022 Federally Required Elements (FRE)
  • Performance on SPP/APR compliance Indicators 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13
  • Whether data submitted by LEAs are valid, reliable, and timely
  • Uncorrected noncompliance from other sources (complaints resolution, due process, residential facility monitoring, and monitoring activities)
  • Any audit findings

State Defined Elements

States may choose to define additional elements in making annual determinations. TEA has incorporated the state defined Results Driven Accountability (RDA) Indicator performance levels to reflect local education agency performance more accurately and as indicated by data results.

Methodologies

The methodology used to compute a State Performance Plan Indicator's (SPPI) measurement can be found on the indicator's webpage. Links to all indicator webpages are located on the State Performance Plan Indicators webpage. Measurements are reported at the state level in the State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR) submission and at the district level in the pubic reporting process.
