Schools across the nation know the importance of student achievement; which is at the core of teaching and learning. Here in Texas, we have an accountability rating system that helps gauge how well students are doing annually. Texas accountability system is based on a system of indexes that provides an all-inclusive assessment of the performance of a school district and each individual campus across the state. Texas performance index framework includes four areas: student achievement, student progress, closing performance gaps, and postsecondary readiness.The empowerment of teachers has long been known as a "sit and get" model that ends up yielding little or no professional growth. This is due in part to the fact that, professional growth demands ownership and personal responsibility. A model of professional growth that simply gives information to an educator yield little returns on investment for teachers and students. The rigorous demands of Texas accountability system demands a different type of approach to professional growth.
