Greetings, Clark Parents!

House Bill 5, adopted in the 83rd Legislative Session (2013), changed several regulations regarding accountability and added a new type of accountability rating and reporting, Community and Student Engagement Accountability (CSEAS). The law requires each school district to evaluate and assign a performance rating for each campus and for the district on nine program and performance areas or factors:


1. Fine arts
2. Wellness and physical education
3. Community and parental involvement
4. 21st century workforce development program
5. 2nd language acquisition program
6. Digital learning environment
7. Dropout prevention strategies
8. Educational programs for GT students
9. Compliance with statutory reporting and policy requirements.

With the 2015-2016 school year in mind, please take a moment to answer this brief survey regarding parental involvement. This information will be used to complete one section of the Community and Parental Involvement Diagnostic.
