Community Base Accountability (CBAS)
Community Base Accountability (CBAS)


In the Spring of 2017, a committee of NISD stakeholders that included students, parents, community members, teachers, and administrators assembled multiple times to review the Profile of Graduate and the ways we measure our progress towards that goal. The work of the committee will be implemented beginning with the 2017-2018 school year and is highlighted below. It is designed to both align with the aspirations of the Profile of a Graduate as well as the previously developed Community-Based Accountability System (CBAS) as well as the state prescribed Community and Student Engagement (CaSE) format. Below is an implementation timeline of the progress of NISD towards a comprehensive accountability system for our schools.

Accountability: Community and Student Engagement Rubrics

With the passage of HB 5 in 2014, each school district and campus self-rated eight domains of the Community and Student Engagement (CaSE) rubric (see table below) as exemplary, recognized, acceptable, and unacceptable. The Community and Student Engagement CaSE rubric is reported to TEA for each campus and district. TEA gives districts flexibility on what criteria to self-evaluate in order to develop a single score for each domain.

In 2015, HB 2804 added Texas Education Code (TEC), §39.0546 requires districts and campuses to select three of the eight domains to self-evaluate as 10% of the new A-F accountability system. Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, districts and campuses still must report the ratings for all eight domains to TEA, but the three domains each district and campus selects will be rated on the A-F scoring system.
