AISD staff are engaging in work to create greater equity among and within our schools with regard to student instructional services and student performance. DRE has published reports to show initial results of our efforts to represent the equity across elementary, middle, and high schools in AISD. These reports have been shared and discussed with district leaders who are using the information in strategic planning and implementation of best practices.
The report, Equity in Austin Independent School District, summarizes overall performance across multiple indicators with a school performance index, along with a measure of the instructional services provided to students. The Analysis of Performance Gaps describes the differences between student groups on STAAR test passing, disciplinary referral, and federal graduation rates. The District Summary of Equity Work and Action Steps for Improvement provides a summary of the district's gap analyses, Equity Self-Assessment Survey results, current research, and district action steps.
Each of these reports are posted on the DRE website and can be found by searching DRE publications using the keyword: equity.
