HB5: Community and Student Engagement

While much of HB5 related to secondary testing and graduation requirements, the new community engagement component is required reporting for ALL schools and districts.

This local evaluation requirement is your opportunity to showcase areas of excellence and success as well as recognize areas in need of improvement and set future goals valued in the community. Each district is required to designate a performance rating for the district and each school based on criteria set by a local committee. The rating must be reported annually to TEA through PEIMS. The first report is due June 26 and will be made publicly available by August 8.

There are nine factors on which every district and campus will be evaluated:

  1. Fine arts
  2. Wellness and physical education
  3. Community and parental involvement
  4. 21st century workforce development program
  5. Second language acquisition program
  6. Digital learning environment
  7. Dropout prevention strategies
  8. Educational programs for GT students
  9. Compliance with statutory reporting and policy requirements

TEPSA staff participated in developing an electronic toolkit to assist schools in implementing this new legislative requirement, and the Summer Conference will feature several topic sessions devoted to community engagement ideas.
