amended; Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972; and Section 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as

Federal Waiver and
O TAA Letter Dated Sept 22
O http://www.tea.state.tx.us/news_release.asp
O The extension will run through the 20142015 school year pending approval of the
agency’s proposal for new teacher and
principal evaluation and support systems in
Texas. The systems are a specific component
of the federal waiver and are scheduled to be
piloted in school districts and charters during
the 2014-2015 school year.
State Accountability
Performance Safeguards
O Safeguards:
O State: 55%
O All Subjects
O Student Groups: All
Students and seven racial/ethnic groups: African American, American
Indian, Asian, Hispanic, Pacific Islander, White, and Two or More Races;
Economically Disadvantaged, Students with Disabilities, and English
language learners (ELLs).
Beginning in 2014, the ELL student group includes ELL students
currently identified as limited English proficient (LEP) plus additional ELL
students who have met the criteria for exiting bilingual or English as a
Second Language (ESL) programs.
O Minimum size: 25
O All campuses and districts must meet state safeguards
Federal Accountability
Performance Safeguards
Same Groups, EXCEPT American Indian, Asian, and Pacific Islander
Reading and Math ONLY
Target is 79%
Minimum Size: 25 AND 10%, but if you have at least 200, no
percentage is required
Example: Special Ed has 25 students and the group scores 60%.
There are 300 students in the All Students group.
Only Title 1 Schools have to address missed Federal Safeguards!
10% of 300 is 30, so even though the group meets the minimum size of
25, they don’t meet the 10% requirement, so they don’t have to address
But you’re welcome to address them if you want!
TAIS Process is used for IR, Safeguards, PBMAS, Data Validation
One Chart!
Focus and Priority Schools
O The Title 1 schools who were named Focus
or Priority were part of a 3-year cohort
O No new focus or priority schools will be
named this year.
O Missed Safeguards Must Be Addressed in the
TAIS Process
O What if I met the standard for state accountability
but missed 1 or more system safeguards?
O You must follow the TAIS process, but do not have
to upload the document
O You can be selected for a random audit

STAAR A And Accountability
O STAAR M had a federal cap of the number of
students who could count as passers (2%)
O It was modified content and was not the
same test
O STAAR A is the same test
O The 2% cap does not apply
Eligibility Requirements
Grades 3-8 will also have students testing online for
Index 2 Questions and
O 3-8 Math will not receive a Growth Measure
O ELL students do not need 2 years of data to
calculate a Progress Measure
O A Growth Measure CAN be calculated for them!
O You’re left with:
O Reading Growth Measure for ALL (And ELL
Progress Measure)
O Math Growth Measure ONLY for ELL
O We will have to wait to see how Performance
Reporting addresses this issue
Next Webinar October 15
O There will not be a Webinar on October 29.
