How will schools be measured under the LAS?
Schools will be measured on the following six indicators of success:
50% - State Accountability
State Accountability measures how well a school’s students perform on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness.
Domain 1 - Student Achievement
Domain 2 - School Progress
Best of Domain 1 or 2 - 35%
Domain 3 - Closing the Gaps - 15%
50% - Local Accountability
Local Accountability is factored in for campuses with a state rating of C or better.
Domain 4 - Academics - 30%
The School Effectiveness Index (SEI) is the district’s value-added growth model, which shows whether a school is growing the students it enrolls, regardless of their incoming baselines. The SEI is a good indicator of how effectively a school provides instruction. A guiding principle of Dallas ISD’s LAS is that how much a student grows is more important than where a student starts.
Domain 5 - Culture and Climate - 10%
Staff Climate Survey - 5%
The survey provides information on what teachers and staff think about their school’s priorities, culture of feedback and support, and health of the working environment.
Parent/Guardian Survey - 5%
Every year, schools ask parents and guardians for feedback about the school’s academic program, environment and communication with families.
Domain 6 - Student Engagement - 10%
Student Survey - 5%
The survey provides information on what students think about their school’s instruction, engagement, culture, and environment.
Extracurricular Participation - 5%
Measures student participation in at least one extra- or co-curricular activity.
