What school improvement interventions will be required for the remainder of the school year?
TEA is currently focused on supporting districts and campuses across the state in what matters most right now - the health and safety of students, staff, families, and school communities. Additionally, we are doing our best to help support instructional continuity for students across the state. We believe this is where our schools and districts should be spending their time as well.
Regarding interventions and submissions, we will be focusing on how districts and campuses can proactively prepare during the summer of 2020, in order to plan for a strong start to the 2020-2021 school year. We are delaying pending submissions for the remainder of this school year. We will be working on guidance and resources that will allow campuses and districts to reflect on the implementation of this year’s Targeted Improvement Plans in a way that provides focus and a strong starting point for next school year’s Targeted Improvement Plans.
Due to all districts and campuses receiving a Not Rated: Declared State of Disaster for 2019-2020 in the state accountability system, what interventions will be required for the 2020-2021 school year?
Districts and campuses shall continue to implement interventions based on their 2019 state accountability ratings. The Not Rated: Declared State of Disaster rating will not impact previously ordered sanctions and interventions, therefore, all interventions carried out by districts and/or campuses in the school year 2019-2020 will carry over and continue for the school year 2020-2021. More guidance on specific intervention requirements will be released in subsequent guidance.
