TEA Accountability Ratings for 2015-2016
The State measures and rates districts in four areas. They are: Student Achievement, Student Progress, Closing Performance Gaps and Postsecondary Readiness. The District and each campus receive a rating in each category. The rating can be either Met Standard or it can be Improvement Required. Because the Primary does not administer STAAR Tests to our Kindergarten or First Grade students, the primary campus receives the same rating as the Elementary Campus.
COMMUNITY BASED ACCOUNTABILITY REPORTS 2014-2015
Last year, Texas schools began to share a second set on accountability standard to keep their local communities informed about progress on a variety of different measures the community may value. The areas of evaluation currently include:
- Fine Arts
- Wellness and PE
- Community and Parent Involvement
- 21st century Workforce Development
- Second Language Acquisition
- Digital Learning Environment
- Dropout Prevention Strategies
- Gifted and Talented Programs
- Compliance and Policy Reporting
Faculty and staff generated lists of activities that fell under each topic. Those lists were evaluated by the campus Site-Based Teams. These teams include faculty, staff, parents and community members. Using the rubric below, each campus and the district as a whole were rated in each of the nine categories.
We would like to thank the staff, parents and community members who gave their time to help us in our efforts to share.

TEA Accountability Ratings for 2013-2014 - 8/26/14
The State measures and rates districts in four areas. They are: Student Achievement, Student Progress, Closing Performance Gaps and Postsecondary Readiness. The District and each campus receive a rating in each category. The rating can be either Met Standard or it can be Improvement Required. Because the Primary does not administer STAAR Tests to our Kindergarten or First Grade students, the primary campus receives the same rating as the Elementary Campus. So essentially, the district receives 16 ratings. The District Met Standard in 15 of the 16 rating areas. It fell short in Closing Performance Gaps at the Elementary. The rating for each campus and the district in each area can be found by clicking below.

Community and Student Engagement - 8/8/14
A new Community and Student Engagement Accountability System (CSEAS) is being made available to the Lytle community. The local evaluation requirement was mandated by the 83rd Texas Legislature as part of House Bill 5 (HB 5). It requires all districts to evaluate the district’s performance and the performance of each campus in regard to community and student engagement. As a part of House Bill 5, each school district is now required to evaluate itself and each of its campuses in the following areas:
- Fine arts
- Wellness and PE
- Community and parent involvement
- 21st century workforce development
- Second language acquisition
- Digital learning environment
- Dropout prevention strategies
- Gifted and talented programs
Districts must assign one of four performance ratings – Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable or Unacceptable – to the district and each campus for overall performance in each category. The district and campuses must also evaluate the compliance with statutory reporting and policy requirements.
The criteria used to assign ratings must be developed by a local committee. The Texas Association of School Administrators provided an instrument and Lytle ISD's local committee was able to use it and modify it based on the District's needs. PEIMS data, District data and campus meeting results were among the items used to evaluate each campus on dozens of factors to determine ratings for each category. Campus reports were collated to generate the district evaluation and all the reports were reviewed by the District Education Improvement Committee before being submitted to the state in June.
LISD will continue to evaluate the reporting tool in regards to the appropriateness of each factor, ease of use, methods used to collect and compile data, and ideas on how to make the tool more meaningful for campuses and the District as a whole. LISD anticipates integrating the CSEAS into the District Action Plan to assist in future planning. We value any input and participation in the process.
2014 Lytle ISD and Campus Reports:
What is 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.
