Local Educational Agency (LEA) Public Reporting
In accordance with IDEA 2004 statute, Section 616(b)(2)(C)(i)(II), states are required to publicly report district performance against the state targets in the State Performance Plan (SPP). Each spring, the Texas Education Agency produces a District Profile of State Performance Plan Indicators Report for each district in the state. This report reflects the district’s performance against the state target for SPP Indicators 1-14 for a given year:
1. Graduation Rates
2. Dropout Rates
3A-C. Participation and Proficiency Rates on Statewide Assessments
4. Suspension/Expulsion Rates
5A-C. Educational Environment, Ages 6-21
6. Educational Environment, Ages 3-5
7. Early Childhood Outcomes
8. Parent Participation
11. Timely Initial Evaluations
12. Early Childhood Transition
13. Secondary Transition
14. Post School Outcomes
The TEA draws on a variety of data sources to compile this District Profile: Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) for Indicators 1, 2, 4B, 5A-C, 6, 9 and 10; the Adequate Yearly Progress dataset for Indicators 3A-C, annual survey results from a sample of districts for Indicators 8 and 14; and state data collection systems for Indicators 7A-C, 11, 12, and 13.
The state targets for Indicators 2, 3A, 4A, 5A-C, 6, 7A-C, 8, and 14 are set by the Texas Education Agency with advisement from the Texas Steering Committee. The state targets for indicators 3B-C reflect established No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Adequate Yearly Progress targets. The state targets for Indicators 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13 are compliance oriented and set by the US Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs at either 0% noncompliance identified (Indicators 9 and 10) or 100% compliance identified (Indicators 11, 12, and 13).
LEA Public Reporting: District Profiles
Note: Areas which are grayed out under the “LEA Rate” column for Indicators 4, 9, 10, 11, and 12 reflect that data are not reported, only performance against the state target. Not all districts report data for Indicators 8, and 14 for a given year (depends on whether or not they have been included in the reporting sample). Districts that did not meet the minimum N size for reporting Indicator 3A are designated meeting the state target.
*Due to small numbers, district level data reported at regional level.
LEA Public Reporting: Methodologies
