Community and Student Engagement

Community and Student Engagement

There are new provisions in Texas Education Code 39.0545 of House Bill 5 that require school districts to evaluate their district and each of their campuses for community and student engagement and assign a rating. Districts must assign a performance rating of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable to the district and each campus, based on locally-determined criteria. 


The planning and feedback process produced rubrics for our campus in Priddy ISD. Performance Measures were created and stated in question form. Performance Measures describe the manner in which the district engages community and students. The Criteria identify the performance of the district and each campus by assigning a rating level of unacceptable, acceptable, recognized, and exemplary.
