Schuyler, Nancy; Turner, Belinda Olivarez
Each school district in Texas must develop, implement, and evaluate the effectiveness of a five-year plan for improvement for accreditation by the State of Texas. This report summarizes Austin Independent School District's (AISD) success in accomplishing five-year goals and objectives set in 1979-80 in eight areas: language arts; social studies (elementary); minority achievement; discipline (secondary); information dissemination; bond package; program coordination; and personnel evaluation. The new five-year plan to take effect next year is also briefly described. This document responds to the following questions: (1) what is the accreditation process; (2) how was the process evaluated; (3) has AISD accomplished its five-year goals and objectives; (4) were objectives met and completed in each priority student need area; (5) were objectives met in the program discrepancy areas; (6) did students who retook the Texas Assessment of Basic Skills as tenth or eleventh graders master the test; and (7) where does AISD go from here? An Executive Summary lists the major positive findings and the major findings requiring action. (PN)
