FFY 2007 Technical Assistance Update As part of the consequence of the State’s determination level of Needs Assistance or lower for two consecutive years, the State is required to report in its Annual Performance Report technical assistance it sought during the reporting period. In addition to participating in the regularly scheduled monthly technical assistance calls with OSEP, the following technical assistance was received for this indicator: � TEA staff attended the National Accountability Conference and OSEP Leadership Conference held in Baltimore, Maryland in August, 2008. The conference provided OSEP guidance, clarification, technical assistance, and presentations related to Indicator 4 in the SPP/APR. Additionally, the conference afforded TEA staff the opportunity to network with other states in regard to their approach, experience and activities associated with the indicator. II. Explanation of Progress or Slippage The number of districts identified with a significant discrepancy in the rates of suspension and expulsion increased from 2 in 2006-07 to 13 in 2007-08. This increase may be attributed to the analysis process used by the TEA to identify districts. The methodology the State has used in the past APR submission is currently being reviewed and will be changed for the FFY 2008 reporting period. The change in methodology will ensure that the TEA is accurately reporting only those districts with a significant discrepancy.
