To the Administrator Addressed (TAA): Delay in 2023 A-F Academic Accountability Ratings

Tuesday, September 12, 2023, the agency released a To The Administrator Addressed Correspondence. to inform local educational agencies (LEAs) about a delay in the issuance of the final rule for the accountability manual and a delay in the issuance of 2023 A–F Accountability Ratings.  The agency will conduct analyses of 2022-2023 statewide growth data and the growth data for the 2018–19 and 2021–22 school years used to inform cut scores in Domain 2a-Academic Growth, and Domain 3-Closing the Gaps.  

The TAA also included a summary of the only other changes being made for the final rule: incorporating changes to AEA STAAR methodology, the Student Achievement: STAAR Only component of Domain 3, the English Language Proficiency component of Domain 3, and school improvement identification.

Texas Accountability Advisory Group (TAAG) and ESC Advisory Group (EAG) Meetings held September 19 and 20, 2023

The objective of these meetings were to share the recent TAA announcement (see below), recall previous conversations about the A—F refresh, review 2023 growth data, and gather Advisory Group feedback on potential changes to the 2023 Academic Growth (D2A) and Closing the Gaps (D3) cut points and targets. The next steps are to finalize the targets and cut points, incorporate these changes into the Final 2023 Accountability Manual, submit the manual to adopt into rule, and to announce the A—F release dates with at least 2 weeks of notice.

The TAAG Meeting Presentation and Notes can be found on the 2023 Accountability Development Materials page.

Uploading Student Information in TIDE

Based on feedback from districts, the Test Information Distribution Engine (TIDE) has been updated for the 2023–2024 school year. When using the Upload Student Information task to upload student information in TIDE, the template will retain previously uploaded values when specific fields are left blank. Refer to the Student Registration Upload File Format document on the TIDE Upload File Formats webpage for detailed information on whether this applies to a specific field. If applicable, “<blank> = database value retained” is included as an acceptable value. If not applicable, a blank value will replace the previously submitted information.

Student information that is currently stored in TIDE may be validated by exporting student records in the Upload-Ready File. Districts must verify all fields, including fields that require yearly updates (e.g., Years in U.S. Schools and Above Grade Level) in TIDE for accuracy by the dates listed on the Calendar of Events. Districts can update student information with templates available through either the Upload Student Information task or the Upload Additional Student Fields task.
