Community and Student Engagement Accountability System
During the 83rd Texas Legislative Session held in 2013, a new component to the state accountability system was introduced in House Bill 5 (HB5). It requires that each district report to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and make public a self-evaluation of the district and each campus in the area of community and student engagement (Texas Education Code 39.0545). HB5 requires that a local committee be established to outline the criteria to be used in issuing a rating to the district and to each campus. For NBISD, the local committee was the District Educational Improvement Committee (DEIC) and the campuses utilized their Campus Improvement Committee (CIC). Each committee was then divided into eight subcommittees. Each of the subcommittees at the district level had an assigned chairperson and included parents and community members. The ninth area of compliance was evaluated by district administration. The District and each campus were rated exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable for both overall performance and on individual factors that include:
- Fine arts
- Wellness and physical education
- Community and parental involvement
- 21stcentury workforce development program
- 2nd language acquisition program
- Digital learning environment
- Dropout prevention strategies
- Educational programs for GT students
- Compliance with statutory reporting and policy requirements.
