House Bill 5 (HB 5) of the 83rd Texas Legislature Regular Session added Section 39.0545 to the Texas Education Code (TEC). TEC § 39.0545 requires that each school district assign ratings of Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, Unacceptable or Not Applicable for the district and for each campus on both overall performance and each of nine factors related to community and student engagement.
The nine Factors are: fine arts, wellness and physical education, community and parental involvement, 21st Century Workforce Development programs, second language acquisition programs, digital learning environment, dropout prevention strategies, educational programs for gifted and talented students, and compliance with statutory reporting requirements. A rating label of Yes or No is assigned for Factor 9, compliance with statutory reporting requirements.
CASE Ratings are determined by the Lometa ISD Site-Based Decision Making Committee through a process of comprehensive data review and evaluation. Collected data is analyzed through the lens of Federal, state and community law, policy, standards, and expectations. A rating for each category is determined through this comparative process. An overall rating is then applied by averaging individual category ratings.
