CaSE Information

 

Community and Student Engagement Ratings

Under the requirements established in Texas Education Code (TEC) 39.0546, each district and campus must annually choose three CaSE components.  District and campus must report to TEA which three CaSE components will be evaluated and the criteria that will be used for that evaluation before the beginning of each school year in the summer PEIMS submission.

 

First CASE Choice: 21st Century Workforce:

The district is moving forward with helping teachers better implement and utilize Project Based Learning within their classrooms.  Opportunities for students to utilize technology individually and in teams. Students will learn how to solve complex problems utilizing critical and creative thinking, collaboration and social skills.

Criteria we will grade on:

  • Did the district provide ample opportunities for teacher training / coaching before the school year and during the school year?
  • 2) Is it evident in TTESS that teachers utilized PBL in their lessons?
  • Do we see an increase in student achievement as a result, either indirect or directly from PBL?

Second CASE Choice: 2nd Language Acquisition:

The district has done a good job of bringing non-English speaking students into the district and getting them to grade level as soon as possible.  The district will continue to push new English Language Learners towards bigger vocabularies, acquiring better fluency and better comprehension of English in curricular and daily life experiences.

 

Criteria we will grade on:          

  • Are teachers that teach ELL students all trained and certified to teach English Language Learners?
    1. Bilingual exceptions waiver
  • Does the district provide training opportunities for all staff to better their skills in assisting non-English speaking students and parents?
  • Do our students make gains each year on TELPAS? STAAR?
  • As individual students are they making at least one grade level gain each year?
  • Does the ESL / Bilingual student population score impact the overall scores of standardized test? Have we addressed that appropriately?

 

Third CASE Choice: Educational Programs for GT Students:

Focus on Gifted and Talented has increased over the last years here in Wimberley.  We are trying to provide more opportunities for students individually and with their GT peers.  Increase opportunities for clubs and contests that reflect gifted students talents.

 

Criteria we will grade on:          

  • Are all teachers of GT students trained in GT instruction?
    1. Teacher participation in trainings
    2. Offer opportunities for teacher growth all year long.
  • Are students being challenged in their specific areas of giftedness?
    1. Students and parents survey
    2. Teacher reports
  • Each campus will provide lists of activities / events that are specifically for GT students and report on their effectiveness.
  • Increased satisfaction in program due to more involvement.
    1. Student / Parent survey
    2. Teacher report
