Campus Priority List for the 2% TAKS-M Cap – AYP

TEA released your district’s 2011 Campus Priority List for the 2% Federal Cap late yesterday afternoon. You can access the list on the Texas Education Agency Secure Environment (TEASE) Accountability web application at https://seguin.tea.state.tx.us/apps/logon.asp .

TEA has developed a default campus priority or ranking list for the 2011 federal cap process.  Districts have the option to use the default ranking or to submit a modified priority list for use in selecting TAKS-M results.  The TEA federal cap process for TAKS-M will select students that were tested on TAKS-M in campus priority order only to the extent needed for the campus to meet AYP. 

Districts have until Friday, June 24, 2011 to submit changes to their campus priority list through the TEASE Accountability web application. School districts that have not provided campus ranking changes by 10:00 p.m. on June 24 agree to accept the TEA Default Campus Ranking for 2011 AYP.

The AYP TEASE Accountability webpage contains PDF documents that provide additional background information and examples on the use of the 2011 campus priority list for the 2% federal cap.  However, the best resource for understanding the federal cap process is the 2010 AYP Guide, Section III:  Federal Cap on Alternate Assessments.  Also available on the AYP website is a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) webpage.  Look for the 2011 AYP Guide on this website, which will be released in June.

In order to help districts understand the federal cap process, a TETN session (event number 10007) on the 2011 AYP Federal Cap Process will be held on Friday, May 20 from 9am – 12pm for district and ESC staff.  This session will be available in video stream through the June 24 deadline for submission of the 2% federal cap campus rankings.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
