|La Porte ISD will hold a public hearing on the district’s Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) report at the Feb. 14 meeting of the LPISD Board of Trustees. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Board Room of the Administration Building, 1002 San Jacinto St.
As required by the Texas Education Code, the report will also include campus performance objectives, violent or criminal incidents, and information received from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board for each high school campus.
The Academic Excellence Indicator System provides districts with a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school as well as the district as a whole. Included in the report is information on the results of Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) testing, participation in TAKS tests, exit-level TAKS cumulative passing rates; progress of prior year TAKS failers, results of the Student Success Initiative, English Language Learners progress measure; attendance rates; annual dropout rates; competition rates; and college readiness indicators.
Performance and profile sections for the district and every campus are made available to the public in this report, as are campus comparable improvement reports that compare schools with similar campuses in their comparison groups.
Campus performance objectives, also part of the report, are found on the LPISD website in each Campus Improvement Plan. The Campus performance objectives are set by each school based on the AEIS report. Campuses are also required to periodically measure progress toward these objectives, which are approved by the Board of Trustees.
Texas districts are also required to publish a report on violent or criminal incidents that have occurred in their schools. This includes a statement of the number, rate and type of violent or criminal incidents that have occurred on each district campus; information concerning school violence prevention and violence intervention policies and procedures used by the district; and findings that result from evaluations conducted under the Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act.
In addition, the report will include information on student performance in postsecondary institutions during the first year enrolled after graduation from high school.
Following the hearing, copies of the AEIS report will be available for review at district campuses as well as the Administration Building. The information also will be available on the district website at www.lpisd.org.
