Texas Districts and Campuses Eligible for Hurricane Ike Provisions for
2009 State and Federal Accountability Systems

When Hurricane Ike made landfall near Galveston on September 13, 2008, its direct impact was felt by a large number of Texas school districts and charters. Many were forced to suspend classes—some for an extended period of time. On September 25, the Texas Education Agency declared Hurricane Ike a state education-related crisis.

Districts and schools located in a county designated by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as a disaster area are eligible for the Hurricane Ike Provision if they were closed for ten or more instructional days between September 10, 2008 and late October 2008.

Below are links to the lists of schools and districts that are eligible for the Hurricane Ike Provision.

State Accountability (Standard and Alternative Education Accountability Procedures):

Under the Hurricane Ike Provision, if the 2009 accountability rating is either Academically Unacceptable or lower than the rating received in 2008, and is based on 2008-09 assessment results, TEA will issue a rating of Not Rated: Other on July 31, 2009.

For additional information regarding the Hurricane Ike Provision for the 2009 state accountability system, refer to Appendix K of the 2009 Accountability Manual. See also the Letter to Superintendents of September 25, 2008.

Federal Accountability:

Districts and campuses evaluated for Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) as required under the federal accountability provisions of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act are also eligible for special consideration under the Hurricane Ike Provision. Under the USDE approved provision, districts and campuses that miss AYP for either the Reading or Mathematics indicators only will not be evaluated on those indicators in 2009 AYP evaluations.

For additional information regarding the Hurricane Ike Provision used for the 2009 AYP evaluations, see the 2009 AYP Guide.
