Dropout Analysis Reports, Briefs, and Graduates
Throughout the state of Texas, school districts report dropout information to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) at the end of the academic year. A dropout is defined as a student who is enrolled in school at some time during the school year but leaves school during the school year without an approved excuse. A dropout is also defined as a student who completes the school year and does not return the following year.
Promotion Standards Reports
On May 4, 1998, the Board of Education of the Houston Independent School District (HISD) adopted a new policy that redefined promotion/retention criteria and abolished social promotion. The purpose of these criteria is to assure that all students in the elementary and middle school grades mastered all the requirements for their current grade level before being promoted to the next level. To be promoted to the next grade, students are required to meet all three standards: grades, criterion-referenced assessments, and norm-referenced assessments.
The Houston Independent School District (HISD) Board of Education established and approved the campus-level planning and decision-making process in 1992. This process includes the creation and maintenance of a Shared Decision-Making Committee (SDMC) at each school to review the district’s educational goals, objectives, and major district wide classroom instructional programs.
Educational Digest Reports
The 2001-02 HISD Digest of Educational Statistics includes information on HISD students, staff members, and financial issues, as well as comparative data with other Texas school districts.
Summer Education Program
The Summer Education Programs were provided to students in the following categories: (1) Tuition, (2) Non-Tuition, (3) Summer Preschool for Limited English Proficiency (LEP) Students, (4) Special Education, and (5) Voyager. The wide variety of summer school programs allowed for instruction in reading, writing, and mathematics. Enrichment courses such as swimming, art, and music were also offered during summer school. Tuition Programs were offered primarily at the high school level. Students earned advanced or make-up credits. Both HISD and non-district students were eligible to enroll in these courses. Non-Tuition programs were available primarily at the elementary and middle school levels.
Student Discipline Report
The purpose of these Student Disciplinary Action Summaries (SDAS) is to provide the number and rate of student disciplinary action reasons that occurred in HISD during the 2007–2008 school year. The reports were created to comply with Senate Bill 1724, as described in Section 39.053 of the Texas Education Code.
