Community & Student Engagement
Since 2014, Mansfield Independent School District is required to annually evaluate its performance and the performance of each of its campuses in the area of Community and Student Engagement.
The district must assign a performance rating of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable to itself and to each of its campuses. Ratings are to be assigned for overall performance as well as for each of the following indicators:
- Fine Arts
- Wellness and Physical Education
- Community and Parental Involvement
- The 21st Century Workforce Development Program
- The Second Language Acquisition Program
- The Digital Learning Environment
- Dropout Prevention Strategies
- Educational Programs for Gifted and Talented Students
During the 84th Texas Legislature, 2015, House Bill 2804 was passed which added Community and Student Engagement ratings to the state academic accountability system. Under this requirement, each district and campus must annually select three of the Community and Student Engagement indicators for this purpose.
Evaluation Process and Criteria
Mansfield Independent School District must evaluate itself on the three selected indicators and assign a letter grade of A, B, C, D, or F for each indicator and for overall Community and Student Engagement performance.
Each campus must also evaluate itself and assign a letter grade of A, B, C, D, or F for each of the three indicators selected and for overall performance. These letter grades will become part of the district and campus state academic accountability ratings.
The following sections detail the evaluation criteria for elementary, intermediate middle and high schools.
