The Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) reports are available through the TEA website at http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/perfreport/aeis/2012/index.html. The AEIS reports compare district performance in multiple areas with region averages and state averages. Reports are available for districts, campuses, regions, and the entire state. The reports are based on the data collected for the 2011-2012 school year. One major difference in this year’s report is that STAAR testing data is not included in the report. The STAAR data is not included because last year was the first year of testing with the new STAAR test and passing standards have yet to be determined. Even without the STAAR testing information, this report contains an enormous amount of data about EISD. TAKS testing results, staffing data, drop out and completion data, college readiness data, and budget data are all included in the report.
In addition to the reports, an AEIS Glossary is also available. This glossary provides definitions for all of the components of the AEIS system and is a valuable resource for parents and educators.
Prior to the regular December board meeting, the EISD Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing to discuss the 2011-2012 AEIS report. The public hearing will start at 6:45 PM and be held in the High School library. Everyone is encouraged to attend.
