School leaver provision in 2009

School Leaver Provision in 2009

  • This provision will no longer apply in 2009 and may be the cause for lower district and campus ratings for:

    • Completion Rate I

    • Annual Dropout Rate (Gr. 7-8) (Standard Procedures)

    • Completion Rate II

    • Underreported students

  • Based on final decisions released in April 2008, this provision will apply to the Annual Dropout Rate (Gr. 7-12) indicator under AEA Procedures, but will be reviewed in spring 2009 by the advisory groups.


School leaver provision in 2009 cont

School Leaver Provision in 2009 (cont.)

  • Districts that used the School Leaver Provision need to pay special attention to the quality of leaver data that will be submitted in fall 2008. This information will be the basis for dropout and completer indicators used in 2009 ratings.


Tat and the school leaver provision

TAT and the School Leaver Provision

  • Campuses that avoid being rated Academically Unacceptable in 2008 due to the application of the School Leaver Provision will be subject to technical assistance team (TAT) intervention requirements in the 2008-09 school year.

  • This is because campuses rated Academically Acceptable in 2008 are identified for technical assistance teams (TATs) if their 2008 accountability results do not meet the 2009 accountability standards. 


Processing of completion rate

Processing of Completion Rate

  • The Division of Accountability Research has prepared the attached summary of the completion rate processing for the Class of 2008.

  • The 2008-09 AEA campus registration process opens September 10, 2008.

  • An email notification will be sent to all superintendents stating that alternative education campuses (AECs) rated under 2008 AEA procedures will be re-registered automatically in 2009 subject to the 75% at-risk registration criterion.


2009 aea campus registration process cont

2009 AEA Campus Registration Process (cont.)

  • AECs wishing to rescind AEA registration must complete an electronic 2008-09 AEA Campus Rescission Form.

  • AECs requesting AEA registration must complete an electronic 2008-09 AEA Campus Registration Form.

  • AECs for which 2008 AEA registration was rescinded due to not meeting the at-risk registration criterion must submit an electronic 2008-09 AEA Campus Registration Form if the AEC wishes to request AEA campus registration in 2009.

  • AEA rescission and registration forms submitted via TEASE Accountability must be printed and maintained locally as official documentation of AEA campus registration requests.


2009 aea campus registration process cont1

2009 AEA Campus Registration Process (cont.)

  • The 2008-09 AEA registration process closes September 24, 2008, at 1:00 p.m. C.D.T.

  • AEA rescissions and registrations will not be processed after this time.

  • When finalized, the list of 2009 Registered AECs will be available on the AEA website at: http://www.tea.state.tx.us/aea.


Aea at risk registration criterion

AEA At-Risk Registration Criterion

  • Each registered AEC must have a minimum percentage of at-risk students enrolled on the AEC verified through current-year PEIMS fall enrollment data in order to be evaluated under AEA procedures and receive an AEA rating. Two safeguards have been incorporated for those AECs that are below the at-risk requirement.

    • Prior-Year PEIMS At-Risk Data Safeguard: If a registered AEC does not meet the at-risk criterion in 2009, then it remains under AEA if the AEC had at least 75% at-risk enrollment in 2008.

    • New Campus Safeguard: If a newcampus is registered for evaluation under AEA procedures, then the AEC is not required to meet the at-risk criterion in its first year of operation. This safeguard provides an accommodation for new campuses with no prior-year data.


Aea at risk registration criterion cont

AEA At-Risk Registration Criterion (cont.)

  • The AEA at-risk registration criterion was 65% in 2006, 70% in 2007, and 75% in 2008 and beyond.

  • AEA registration is rescinded for AECs that do not meet the at-risk registration criterion or utilize the safeguards. As a result, the AECs are evaluated under standard accountability procedures.

  • Below is a history of the number of campuses not meeting the at-risk registration criterion that were shifted to standard accountability procedures. Rescinding AEA registration also impacts the number of charters evaluated under AEA.

    • 2006 – 17 AECs and 8 charters

    • 2007 – 24 AECs and 12 charters

    • 2008 – 17 AECs and 5 charters


Aea at risk registration criterion cont1

AEA At-Risk Registration Criterion (cont.)

  • The PEIMS Edit+ reports below may be helpful when analyzing at-risk student enrollment data. These reports may be run at the district and campus levels.

    • PRF5D003 – Student Roster. Lists all students enrolled by grade. The ‘AT RS’ column indicates whether a student is at-risk.

    • PRF5D018 – At-Risk Students by Sex, Ethnicity, and Grade. One-page report of at-risk students by sex, ethnicity, and grade.

    • PRF5D025 – At-Risk Roster by Grade. Lists at-risk students by grade. Other student demographics are included on this report.
