School Improvement Resource Center

Under the Title I, School Improvement Program of No Child Left Behind, a Title I Local Education Agency (LEA) or campus that does not meet Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for two consecutive years will be considered in need of improvement and will enter the School Improvement Program (SIP). The School Improvement Resource Center (SIRC) is a statewide initiative that serves as a support system to schools that receive funding under the Title I - School Improvement Program (SIP) as they move through the school improvement process.

Adequate Yearly Progress

Under the accountability provisions in the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, all public school campuses, school districts, and the state are evaluated for Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). Districts, campuses, and the state are required to meet AYP criteria on three measures: Reading/Language Arts, Mathematics, and either Graduation Rate (for high schools and districts) or Attendance Rate (for elementary and middle/junior high schools).
 
If a campus, district, or state that is receiving Title I, Part A funds fails to meet AYP for two consecutive years, that campus, district, or state is subject to certain requirements such as offering supplemental education services, offering school choice, and/or taking corrective actions.

Division of NCLB Program Coordination

 
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) was first passed by Congress in 1965 as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s War on Poverty. The most recent reauthorization of this legislation is the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). The primary function of NCLB is to close the achievement gap between groups of students by requiring greater accountability and offering increased flexibility and choice. The NCLB Act affects almost every school district and charter school in the state.
 
The Division of NCLB Program Coordination at TEA is responsible for the state-level administration and implementation of federal education programs under the No Child Left Behind Act and the Ed-Flex Partnership program.

(c) The Texas School Accountability Dashboard developed under Subsection (a) must include: (1) performance information for each school district and campus in areas specified by Subsection (b) and must allow for comparison between districts and campuses in each of the areas; (2) a comparison of the number of students enrolled in each school district, including: (A) the percentage of students of limited English proficiency, as defined by Section 29.052; (B) the percentage of students who are unschooled asylees or refugees, as defined by Section 39.027(a-1); (C) the percentage of students who are educationally disadvantaged; and (D) the percentage of students with disabilities; (3) a comparison of performance information for each district and campus disaggregated by race, ethnicity, and populations served by special programs, including special education, bilingual education, and special language programs; and (4) a comparison of performance information by subject area.
