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

Harris Poll Interactive Survey

The Harris Interactive School Poll has been instituted by Victoria Independent School District to help provide information about the experiences and satisfaction levels of key District stakeholders (students, teachers, staff members, and parents). Improving satisfaction among stakeholders is an incremental process. It begins by resolving the most critical issues (those that have the greatest impact t on satisfaction) and then focusing on the next most critical issues.

District leaders first undertook this survey in the fall of 2006 to develop a data-enriched environment for decision-making and to provide students, employees, and parents the opportunity to present their views. The data was used to develop the Strategic Aims, Goals, and Measures for implementing change within the District. The second wave of data collected was during the fall of 2008 and reflects changes that have occurred throughout the District.

Strategic Aims and Goal Updates

VISD under the leadership of Superintendent Bob Moore began with the development of a strategic plan guided by a Leadership Team made of approximately 70 members from community, business, parents, district administration, teachers, and students. The Leadership Team used various data sources including the Harris Poll survey, Academic Excellence Indicator state data, VISD financial reports, and Organizational Health Inventories. Additional information used included over 7300 responses to an affinity question posed to parents, students, school staff, and community asking “What do you think the ideal school should look like?” This data was decomposed and assisted the team in the development of the seven AIMS identified in the Strategic Plan. These AIMS and goals were used to guide the work in VISD this past school year. The reports provided represents the work that VISD has undertaken since the development of this “Vision of Excellence” plan. The Strategic AIMS and the results found in these report continues to be a guiding force for the work in VISD.

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.
