Reporting Requirements for Community and Student Engagement Indicators

The Texas Education Agency posted information on June 20th regarding reporting requirements for community and student engagement indicators. Please see the posting for full details.

Highlights include:

All school districts and charters are required to assign a performance rating of Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, or Unacceptable to the district and each campus for overall performance and the following categories:

•    Fine arts
•    Wellness and physical education
•    Community and parental involvement
•    The 21st Century Workforce Development program
•    The second language acquisition program
•    The digital learning environment
•    Dropout prevention strategies
•    Educational programs for gifted and talented students

Statute also requires that local committee(s) determine the criteria that the district uses to evaluate and assign a status regarding compliance with statutory reporting and policy requirements. The status regarding compliance will be collected through the Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) starting with the Summer, 2014 collection.

There are two significant deadlines and one special deadline associated with the submission of this information.
1.    The Summer PEIMS submission reflecting the data from the 2013-2014 school year is first due no later than June 26.
2.    The Summer PEIMS resubmission reflecting the data from the 2013-2014 school year is finally due no later than July 24.
3.    If a school is operating on a year-round basis, the Summer PEIMS submission is first due no later than June 26, and the Summer PEIMS resubmission data is due no later than August 21.

The following summarizes the key points of the required PEIMS submission and addresses comments received during the public comment period for the adopted rule:

•    Districts are required to assign locally-determined performance ratings and compliance statuses to the district and all campuses in the district.
•    Districts are required to post the ratings and compliance statuses for the district and each campus on the school district’s website by Aug. 8.
•    Budgeted (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.
•    The statutory reporting and policy compliance code (C088) must be either a “0” or “1” and may not be left blank.
•    The submissions must be made through PEIMS, and there are no alternative data collection systems.
•    TEA is required to report the local performance ratings and compliance statuses on the TEA website no later than Oct. 1.
