    Approximately 35 hours of public testimony from about 280 witnesses
    State Board of Education gave final approval on May 21
    Draft of social studies TEKS with all amendments incorporated will be posted to TEA website June 25
    Implemented in schools beginning in 2011-12 school year
  • Social Studies Standards
    James Armistead – Grade 8
    Wentworth Cheswill – Grade 8
    Benjamin Banneker – Grade 3
    José Antonio Navarro – Grades K, 4, and 7
    Ellen Ochoa – Grade 7

    Project of the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO)
    Race to the Top federal grant program
    Following the initial round of feedback, the draft Common Core standards were opened for public comment and received nearly 10,000 responses
    Example from HS Math Modeling: In descriptive modeling, a model simply describes the phenomena or summarizes them in a compact form. Graphs of observations are a familiar descriptive model—for example, graphs of global temperature and atmospheric CO2 over time.
  • Graduation and Dropout Rates
  • Intercultural Development Research Association
  • Graduation Rates
    Class of 2009, Grades 9-12
    • 80.6% - Graduated on time
    • 8.6% - Continued in school
    • 1.4% - Received a GED
    • 9.4% - Dropped out
  • Dropout and Completion
    21 states report using the NGA compact graduation rate definition. Of the 16 that publicly reported their graduation rate for 2008, Texas ranked fourth behind only Iowa, Vermont and Virginia.
    Texas ranked ahead of states such as Michigan, Florida, Rhode Island, Minnesota, North Carolina, New York, and New Mexico among others.
  • Campus Graduation Summary for Fox Technical HS in San Antonio ISD
    In 2005-06, you would have seen 541 brand new ninth graders
    Over the next three years, 124 students left for other Texas public schools.
    Over that same time, 56 students joined the school.
    Adjusting for students who left and who came in, you would expect 473 students to have graduated in May 2009. Did they?
    By May 2009, 297 students had graduated. What happened to the other 176 students?
  • What happened to the other 176 students at Fox Technical HS?
    51 students were still in school, and the rest had left school.
    Where did the other 125 students go?
    40 left the campus for other reasons; of these
    • 14 enrolled in schools in other states
    • Fewer than 5 began home schooling
    • 15 returned to their home countries
    • 6 enrolled in Texas private schools
    • Fewer than 5 died
    • 85 students either dropped out or were unable to be tracked in the system because of possible reporting errors.
    • An additional 106 students were repeating Grade 9 and therefore belong with an earlier graduating class

  • Student Achievement
  • 2009 NAEP Mathematics
    Eighth-grade African-American students in Texas tied Massachusetts for first place on the NAEP mathematics exam.
    Among white students, Texas’ eighth-grade students earned the fourth highest score on the NAEP math exam.
    Among Hispanic students, Texas’ eighth-graders had the fourth highest score on the NAEP math exam.
    Overall, Texas ranked 18th among 50 states on eighth-grade NAEP math exam.
    African-American fourth-grade students in Texas earned the third highest score on NAEP math.
    Texas’ white fourth-graders tied for fifth place with North Carolina on NAEP math.
    Hispanic students in Texas ranked eighth nationwide.
  • Katrina Student Study Findings
    • In 2006, Katrina students performed lower than statewide testers.
    • The performance of Katrina students educated in Texas from 2006 to 2009 was slightly better in the last three years of the study than was the performance of their matched peers in reading/English language arts and mathematics.
    • By 2009, Katrina students performed:
    • similar to statewide testers in reading; and
    • lower than statewide testers in mathematics though the gap in math passing percentages between Katrina students and statewide testers was reduced substantially
    • The performance of the Katrina students relative to their matched peers likely reflects the recovery of these students, the increased stability in their schooling, and the commitment of the state to meeting the educational needs of these students.
  • 2009 AP Exams
    Both the number of Texas students taking the AP exams and the number of tests taken increased (increase of 8 percent and 6.4 percent respectively over last year).
    The results show that the number of public school students scoring three or higher increased more than 9 percent over 2008.
    African-American students posted the highest gain, a 17.3 percent increase in the number of students attaining scores of 3, 4 or 5.
    Hispanic students had a 16 percent increase over the number of students scoring three or higher in 2008.
  • ACT Scores
    Texas ACT composite score stayed at an all-time high for the Class of 2010 even as the number of test takers rose by 12 percent .
    The percent of Texas students taking the ACT who met all four college readiness benchmarks has increased from 17 percent in 2005 to 24 percent in 2010.
  • Other Recognition
    Jobs for the Future recently lauded Texas as one of only three states to have made progress on all six model policy elements that frame a sound strategy for dropout prevention and recovery since 2002. These include:
    Reinforce the right to a public education;
    Count and account for dropouts;
    Use graduation and on-track rates to trigger transformative reform;
    Invent new models;
    Accelerate preparation for postsecondary success;
    And provide stable funding for systemic reform.
    Texas earned a grade of ‘A’ on standards, assessment and accountability, and ranked sixth in the country in Education Week’s Quality Counts report. The report gave Texas a “100” on curriculum standards and school accountability. Texas also ranked sixth and earned a grade of ‘B’ for a category called transitions and alignments, which examines early-childhood education, college readiness and economy and workforce.
    Three districts won Broad Prize for Urban Education (Aldine, Brownsville, and Houston), more than any other state in the history of the prize. The Broad Prize is given for demonstrating the strongest student achievement and improvement while narrowing achievement gaps between income and ethnic groups.
  • Current State Accountability System
    Measures districts and campuses on up to 35 indicators
    5 Tested Subjects (Reading/English Language Arts, Writing, Social Studies, Math, and Science)
    Completion I Rate (4-year on-time graduates + 5th year continuers)
    Grade 7-8 Dropout Rate
    5 Student Groups (All Students, African American, Hispanic, White, and Economically Disadvantaged) evaluated on each of the measures
    Ratings of Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable, and Academically Unacceptable
  • What should the rating be for this campus?
    Evaluated on 25 total measures
    Rated Exemplary on 22 measures
    Rated Recognized on 2 measures
    Rated Acceptable on 1 measure
  • Actual Rating
    Recognized
    Used the Texas Projection Measure for the one Academically Acceptable measure to move up one level to Recognized.
  • Finance, Operation and Efficiencies
  • Sunset of TEA Rules
    Statutory Process (Texas Gov. Code Chapter 2001.039) of four year review still in progress
