Community and Student Engagement Local Accountability System


    There are new provisions in Texas Education Code 39.0545 of House Bill 5 that require school districts to evaluate their district and each of their campuses for community and student engagement and assign a rating. Districts must assign a performance rating of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable to the district and each campus, based on locally-determined criteria. Statute does not permit the Agency to determine the criteria that can be used for these evaluations. Districts will submit their locally-determined performance ratings to the Agency in nine possible categories for each campus.

    1. Fine Arts

    2. Wellness and PE

    3. Community and Parent Involvement

    4. 21st Century Workforce Development

    5. Second Language Acquisition

    6. Digital Learning Environment

    7. Dropout Prevention Strategies

    8. Gifted and Talented Programs

    9. District and Campus Compliance

    The planning and feedback process produced rubrics for every campus in the Sherman ISD with the exception of the two residential facilities at Perrin. Performance Measures were created and stated in question form. Performance Measures describe the manner in which the district and all campuses engage community and students. The Criteria identify the performance of the district and each campus by assigning a rating level of unacceptable, acceptable, recognized, and exemplary.
