Improvement Activities Completed The improvement activities related to decreasing the dropout rate for students with disabilities are interrelated to several other indicators in the Annual Performance Report (APR) including: � Indicator 1: Graduation Rate � Indicator 3: Adequate Yearly Progress (participation and performance of students with disabilities on statewide assessments) � Indicator 4: Suspension and Expulsion Rates � Indicator 5: Educational Environments, Ages 6-21 (placements in the least restrictive environment) � Indicator 13: Transition Planning � Indicator 14: Post-School Outcomes. As a part of the comprehensive strategy to ensure that all Texas students graduate from high school prepared for the full range of postsecondary opportunities, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) is implementing programs from early childhood through high school to reduce the dropout rate and increase the graduation rate for Texas students. The Early Childhood Education area focuses on pre-kindergarten programs that support effective teaching practices that lead to growth in children’s intellectual and social development, which is critical to their future academic success. The Student Success Initiative (SSI) authorizes intervention instruction for students who are struggling in reading and mathematics in grades K-8. Research shows that falling behind grade level increases the chance a student will drop out of school. By supporting students in grades K-8, the SSI creates a strong foundation for high school completion and success. The Texas High School Completion and Success Initiative allocated funds to support the improvement of high school graduation rates and post-secondary readiness. Funding provides research-based instructional support and professional development to high schools serving students at-risk of dropping out of school, with the goals of improving high schools and reducing the number of dropouts. College readiness initiatives are designed to help align the K-16 curriculum and to ensure a smoother transition for students between K-12 public education and higher education. Recent research shows that students, particularly low-income and minority students, in schools with rigorous and aligned curriculum are more likely to enter into and succeed in higher education.

II. Explanation of Progress or Slippage The Class of 2007 dropout rate for students with disabilities (13.9%) increased from the Class of 2006 baseline data year (8.8%). This is reflective of the increase in the dropout rate for all students (8.8% to 11.4%). This increase continues to reflect the effects of the State’s adoption of National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) dropout definitions in 2005-06. Additionally, the TEA changed dropout reporting procedures for data integrity purposes. A complete description of the State’s graduation and dropout rates can be found in the report Secondary School Completion and Dropouts in Texas Public Schools 2006-07 which can be found on the TEA website at: http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/research/pdfs/dropcomp_2006-07.pdf Revisions, with Justification, to Proposed Targets / Improvement Activities / Timelines / Resources for FFY 2006: I. Targets FFY 2008 Target Revision: 12% (decrease by 2% per year) Justification: The previous target (2.8%) was aligned to a TEA Performance Measure set by the Texas Legislature. Although this measure for all students still exists and remains a strategic goal, the TEA presented a revised target to the Texas Steering Committee for discussion in November 2008. The revised target corresponds to about half the difference between the current state dropout rate for all students (11%) and for students receiving special education services (14%). II. Improvement Activities / Timelines / Resources The improvement activities related to decreasing the dropout rate for students with disabilities are interrelated to several other indicators in the Annual Performance Report (APR) including: � Indicator 1: Graduation Rate � Indicator 3: Adequate Yearly Progress (participation and performance of students with disabilities on statewide assessments) � Indicator 4: Suspension and Expulsion Rates � Indicator 5: Educational Environments, Ages 6-21 (placements in the least restrictive environment) � Indicator 13: Transition Planning � Indicator 14: Post-School Outcomes. It is important to consider the data associated with the indicators above to address the dropout indicator. Specific improvement activities related to these areas include all the activities listed in Indicator I (Graduation). Improvement activities for this indicator will be ongoing through the 2010- 2011 school year. Improvement activities for this indicator will be ongoing through the 2010-2011 school year.
