Updated Preliminary 2023 A–F Academic Accountability System Framework

Important things to note-

-the updated cut scores and targets will be out in January 2023 (what scales to an A-F, not what is approaches, meets, masters for each grade level)

-Domain 3 will be finalized in Jan-Feb 2023 with Federal government approval (where major changes are coming)

-Final manual will come out after STAAR testing in Summer 2023

-TEA will run a what-if rating for each district in Spring 2023 telling you what you would have with 2022 data and the new system

Stakeholders are encouraged to provide feedback here through February 1, 2023 to help inform the proposed rule. The 2023 Accountability Manual will be published in proposed form in spring 2023 for additional feedback prior to becoming rule in summer 2023.

Student Listing for 2022–23 Local Remote Learning ADA Funding Eligibility Now Available

The Student Listing for 2022–23 Local Remote Learning ADA Funding Eligibility in the Texas Education Agency Login (TEAL) Accountability application is intended to help LEAs determine funding eligibility for students who may participate in a local remote learning program. The responsibility for making the final determination of a student’s eligibility for funding lies with the LEA. Attendance data is auditable.

Due to data limitations, the student listing provides enrollment information based on the School Year 2022–23 Tracking Reporting, 2021–22 STAAR performance outcomes, and 2021–22 attendance. TEA does not have access to course grade data, unexcused absence counts, or any local beginning of year (BOY) assessment results, so LEAs can use the list provided by TEA as a starting point but must independently determine and document student eligibility for remote ADA.

However, the commissioner must approve the expansion amendment request and designate the campus as a high-quality campus prior to the charter receiving grant funding, if awarded.
