Accountability Updates-February

ESC Region 11 State & Federal Accountability Updates

ESSA State Plan Resubmission

On January 8, 2018, the Texas Education Agency submitted to the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) a revised version of our state's Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) consolidated plan.

A revised version was necessary following a request from USDE to provide specific clarifications to the plan to ensure the state is complying with federal statute. The major areas of clarification centered around the new A-F accountability system outlined in HB 22.

A copy of the revised state plan, as well as additional information related to our ESSA plan can be viewed here

2018 Accountability Development

The Accountability Technical Advisory Committee (ATAC) and the Accountability Policy Advisory Committee (APAC) are two advisory groups central to the continued development and implementation of the state academic accountability system.

The Commissioner's final decisions for 2018 accountability will be released late winter 2018.
