(TEA) This correspondence is to update you on new reporting requirements for community and student engagement (CaSE) ratings established by House Bill (HB) 2804 (84th Texas Legislature, 2015).

Since 2014, each school district has evaluated itself and each of its campuses in all eight components of CaSE and assigned ratings of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable. HB 2804 added CaSE ratings to the state academic accountability system. Under the requirements established in Texas Education Code (TEC), §39.0546, each district and campus must annually choose three CaSE components for this purpose.

Districts and campuses must report to the agency which three CaSE components will be evaluated and the criteria that will be used for that evaluation before the beginning of each school year. All reporting will occur through the Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS)/Texas Student Data System (TSDS). Because current statute requires CaSE ratings to be used for academic accountability beginning in the 2017–18 school year, the first time that districts and campuses must report their three chosen CaSE components and the criteria for assigning letter grades is June 2017 as part of the Summer PEIMS Submission.
