Community and Student Engagement Ratings (CaSE)

Community and Student Engagement Ratings (CaSE)

The Texas Education Code requires all districts and charters to evaluate their own performance, as well as that of each of their campuses, in the area of community and student engagement. Districts must assign—both to themselves and to each of their campuses—one of four performance ratings: Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable or Unacceptable.

In addition to an overall rating, districts must assign to themselves and to each of their campuses a performance rating for the following categories:

  •  Fine Arts
  •  Wellness and Physical Education
  •  Community and Parental Involvement
  •  21st Century Workforce Development Program
  •  Second Language Acquisition Program
  •  Digital Learning Environment
  •  Dropout Prevention Strategies
  •  Educational Programs for Gifted and Talented Students

Local committees determine the criteria that districts use to evaluate performance and performance ratings and to evaluate district compliance with statutory reporting and policy requirements.

Community and Student Engagement (CaSE) ratings are locally determined and not currently part of the state accountability rating system or the financial accountability rating system—known as the School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST). Beginning with the 2017–2018 school year, Community and Student Engagement Ratings will be 10% of every district’s and campus’s academic accountability rating.
