House Bill 3
House Bill 3 Information
House Bill 3 requires school boards to establish and adopt five-year goals in the three areas of early childhood literacy proficiency, early childhood mathematics proficiency, and college, career, and military readiness (CCMR). Specific requirements in the areas of early childhood include annual goals for aggregate student growth on 3rd Grade Reading and Math STAAR at or above the Meets Grade Level performance level and for students in each group evaluated under the Closing the Gaps Domain (Domain III) under the current accountability system. Similarly, student outcome goals are adopted for graduates meeting college, career, and military readiness.
During the 2019-2020 school year, district and campus leaders worked collaboratively to analyze various progress measures related to these three areas, evaluate current levels of student performance, and develop five-year goals and annual targets focused on continued growth. District goals were established and then used to set appropriate goals at each campus in alignment with attaining the overall district goals. House Bill 3 requirements also include an annual review of the goals by the Board of Trustees at a public meeting. These goals will be embedded within the District Improvement Plan and Campus Improvement Plans as a focus for continued growth in these areas.
