Community and Student Engagement Ratings

Community and Student Engagement (CaSE)
The Texas Education Code requires all districts and charters to evaluate their own performance, as well as that of each of their campuses, in the area of community and student engagement. Districts must assign—both to themselves and to each of their campuses—one of four performance ratings: Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable or Unacceptable in eight components.

Districts must assign to themselves and to each of their campuses a performance rating for the following categories:

  •  Fine Arts  
  •  Wellness and Physical Education 
  •  Community and Parental Involvement  
  •  21st Century Workforce Development Program 
  •  Second Language Acquisition Program 
  •  Digital Learning Environment 
  •  Dropout Prevention Strategies  
  •  Educational Programs for Gifted and Talented Students

Beginning the 2017-18 school year, each district and campus will select three of the eight categories in community and student engagement on which it will rate itself for the purpose of academic accountability ratings. Each district and campus will report to TEA the rating of A, B, C, D, or F that it assigns to itself for overall performance in community and student engagement and for each of the three categories. 
The selected categories for each campus and district are:
  District Primary Elementary Intermediate  Junior High High School
