Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR)
****Rescheduled Public Hearing – TAPR****
The Public Hearing to present and discuss the 2013-2014 Longview ISD Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR) has been rescheduled and will be held in conjunction with the Longview ISD Board of Trustees meeting on January 28, 2015 at 12:00 p.m. at Forest Park Middle School at 1644 North Eastman Road, Longview, Texas 75601.
Due to changes in legislation, the performance report formerly known as the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) report is now the Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR).
Texas Education Code Chapter 39 requires each district’s board of trustees to publish an annual report that includes the TAPR, campus performance objectives, a report of violent or criminal incidents, and information received under Texas Education Code §51.403(e) from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The board of trustees shall hold a hearing for public discussion of the report, and they shall widely disseminate the report within the district.
Publishing an Annual Report
The TAPR comprises the main part of the district’s annual report. Districts must publish the TAPR in the format prepared by TEA. Apart from the TAPR, districts must also include the PEIMS Financial Standard Reports, campus performance objectives, a report of violent or criminal incidents, and information received from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) for each high school campus in the district.
A hearing for public discussion of the annual report must be held within 90 calendar days from November 21, 2014.
A Public Hearing will be held in conjunction with a regularly scheduled Longview ISD Board of Trustees Meeting on January 12, 2015 at 7:00 p.m in the Longview ISD Board room at 1301 E. Young Street, Longview, Texas 75601, to present and discuss the 2013-2014 Longview ISD Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR), formerly known as the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) report.
Disseminating the Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR)
Copies of the Longview ISD district TAPR, individual campus TAPR's, and a District summary of the TAPR are located below. An English glossary of terms is also provided. A Spanish glossary will be posted in January 2015 after its release from the Texas Education Agency.
To accommodate members of the public without internet access, copies of the full TAPR's will be available at each school office as well as the Longview ISD Education Support Center located at 1301 E. Young Street, Longview, Texas 75601, after the Public Hearing scheduled for January 12, 2015.
