Annually, upon receiving the district STAAR accountability data, the Accountability team analyzes the data for patterns and trends that indicate where we have need to leverage performance for growth and improvement. However, STAAR data is only one form of data utilized. The team also analyzes TELPAS, PBMAS, Advanced Placement, Dual Credit, Attendance, Graduation Rate, Dropout Rate, Special Programs data, ACT, SAT, TSI, Discipline and other assessment, accountability, enrollment, and other data to determine where we can best impact overall performance. Furthermore, we seek to narrow the number of Performance Objectives, to a meaningful number of targets which fulfill our compliance indicators and keep our efforts focused on where we can make the greatest growth. As a result of reviewing the 2018-19 data, the Accountability team, Academic Advisory Council, and Executive Team have concluded there are several areas of performance that can be impacted positively by setting performance objectives which are laser focused on improving the problem areas.
The Board approved all District and Campus Performance Objectives for the 2019-20 school year in the month of October 2019.
