Federal Accountability

  • 2022 Academic Accountability Update


    The Texas Education Agency (TEA) expects campuses that received an overall D or F in 2019 and which did not receive a rating of A, B, or C in 2022 to continue to update their Targeted Improvement Plans (TIPs) to identify and analyze areas of growth and areas that require improvement.  For reference, please see (TEC), §39A.060(1).  As in the previous year, these plans should be maintained locally.  For additional information, please review the table under the State Accountability header in the August 2022 TAA.

    For 2022 federal academic accountability, Comprehensive Support and Improvement (CSI) campuses are required to participate in interventions.  Title I-served Comprehensive campuses will have an entitlement for the Title I, 1003 School Improvement Grant to support the improvement efforts on the campus financially.  Campuses identified for Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI), and Additional Targeted Support (ATS) that are not required to engage in school improvement support and interventions via the ESF-Focused Support Grant, are strongly encouraged to develop and maintain a TIP using the excel template provided on our Campus Accountability Interventions and Guidance website and retain this plan locally.

    However, ATS and TS campuses that are not recipients of the ESF-Focused Support Grant may use a template of their choice to document their improvement efforts, including embedding their school improvement plan in their Campus Improvement Plan.  Title I- served CSI, TSI, and ATS campuses will have the opportunity to apply for the 2023-2025 ESF Focused Support Grant, a Letter of Intent (LOI) competition grant, in the Spring of 2023.  This grant program will provide funding to LEAs to engage with Effective Schools Framework Vetted Improvement Programs.  Please review the table under the Federal Accountability header in the August 2022 TAA for additional information.

    Only CSI and ESF-Focused Grantee TIPs must receive Board approval by December 16, 2022.  (TEC) §39A.055(3), requires submission of the TIP to the district board, which means that the entire TIP must be provided to the board.  District staff may provide summaries of the TIP, along with the entire TIP, for the board's reference.

    All comprehensive support and improvement campuses and ESF-Focused Support grantees should visit the Campus Accountability and Intervention Guidance web page.
