District and Campus Report Cards Reported on the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS)

The Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) pulls together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas every year. This information is put into the annual AEIS reports, which are available each year in the fall. The performance indicators are:
  • Results of Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS*); by grade, by subject, and by all grades tested;
  • Participation in the statewide assessment programs (TAKS/TAKS(Accommodated)/TAKS-M/TAKS-Alt);
  • Exit-level TAKS Cumulative Passing Rates;
  • Progress of Prior Year TAKS Failers;
  • Results of Student Success Initiative;
  • Attendance Rates;
  • Annual Dropout Rates (grades 7-8, grades 7-12, and grades 9-12);
  • Completion Rates (4-year longitudinal);
  • College Readiness Indicators;
  • Completion of Advanced / Dual Enrollment Courses;
  • Completion of the Recommended High School Program or Distinguished Achievement Program;
  • Participation and Performance on Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) Examinations;
  • College-Ready Graduates;
  • Texas Success Initiative (TSI) – Higher Education Readiness Component; and
  • Participation and Performance on the College Admissions Tests (SAT and ACT)
Performance on each of these indicators is shown disaggregated by ethnicity, sex, special education, low income status, limited English proficient status, and at risk status (district only). The reports also provide extensive information on school and district staff, finances, programs and student demographics.

Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) / NCLB Report Cards

The following data is provided for the school district and each campus:
  1. Assessment results by race, ethnicity, gender, disability status, migrant status, English proficiency, and economically disadvantaged show performance levels for two years for each subject and grade tested. Comparisons are made between the annual objectives and actual performance for each group of students including the percent of students not tested.

  2. Graduation rates for secondary school students.

  3. Performance of the school district and each campus on adequate yearly progress measures.

  4. Number and the names of Title I schools identified in need of improvement including information on those schools identified for improvement

Department and Campus Planning

Each school year the principal of each school campus and the departmental leaders of each department, with the assistance of campus and district level committees, must develop, review and revise the campus improvement plan. The purpose of this plan is to improve student performance on the state’s academic excellence indicators for all student populations, as well as improve performance on any other performance measures for special needs populations. The campus and department improvement plans must support the districts strategic goals and objectives for education.
