Helping You Understand Your Responsibilities Regarding Community and Student Engagement Ratings and the Texas Academic Accountability System
Big changes are coming to the way CaSE (Community and Student Engagement) indicators are evaluated and reported by districts and charter holders and individual campuses. On Tuesday, May 9th at 4 p.m. TCSA is providing a free webinar to help bring clarity to charter holders on this new and somewhat confusing process.
As a reminder, since the 2013-2014 school year districts and charter holders evaluated themselves and each campus on all eight components of CaSE - fine arts, wellness and physical education, community and parental involvement, 21st Century Workforce Development programs, second language acquisition programs, digital learning environment, dropout prevention strategies, and educational programs for gifted and talented students. Each district/charter holder and campus assigned ratings of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable to each of the eight components, using district-developed evaluation criteria.
With the advent of HB 2804 (84th Legislative Session in 2015), districts/charter holders and campuses must also select three of the eight components and a means to evaluate their progress, as the grades for the three selected components will be included in the A-F accountability system beginning in August, 2018.
The webinar will address the following:
• Understanding the difference between the two rating systems
• Selecting CaSE indicators to be evaluated
• Developing evaluation criteria
• Due dates for reporting indicators and evaluation criteria
• Best practices for CaSE reporting and evaluation
We look forward to you joining us on May 9th at 4 p.m. Register here.
