Evaluation of Campus Performance in Community

Starting in 2013-14, every school district was required to evaluate each campus and the district with nine factors, as well as overall performance, assign ratings of Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, or Unacceptable.   The new rating system is required by House Bill 5 (TEC § 39.0545). 
However, June 15, 2017, House Bill 22 (HB 22) repealed Texas Education Code (TEC), 39.0545 and 39.0546, the statutory requirements for both uses of CaSE ratings. Click here for a copy of the Texas Education Agency correspondence.

Highly Qualified Teachers Under No Child Left Behind (NCLB)

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 states that any teacher hired after the first day of the 2002-2003 school year to teach in a Title I, Part A program must be "highly qualified." For more information on highly qualified teachers in Castleberry ISD, please click here.

Texas NCLB Report Card

Section 1111(h)(2) of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires each local education agency (LEA) that receives Title I, Part A funding to disseminate specific LEA- and campus- level data to all LEA campuses, parents of all enrolled students, and make the information widely available through public means such as posting on the internet, distribution to the media, or distribution through public agencies.

Recovery.gov

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 required the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board to create a website "to foster greater accountability and transparency in the use of funds made available in this Act.”  Recovery.gov went live on February 17, 2009, the day  President Obama signed the Act into law. The site's primary mandate is to provide taxpayers with user-friendly tools to track how and where Recovery funds are spent.
