Part B State Annual Performance Report (APR) for 2007 Monitoring Priority: Disproportionality Indicator 9: Percent of districts with disproportionate representation of racial and ethnic groups in special education and related services that is the result of inappropriate identification. (20 U.S.C. 1416(a)(3)(C)) Measurement: Percent = [(# of districts with disproportionate representation of racial and ethnic groups in special education and related services that is the result of inappropriate identification) divided by the (# of districts in the State)] times 100. FFY Measurable and Rigorous Target 2007 0% of districts with disproportionate representation of racial and ethnic groups in special education and related services that is the result of inappropriate identification. FFY 2006 SPP/APR Response Table Update The State was required to report on the status of districts previously identified as having disproportionate representation that was the result of inappropriate identification. The Texas Education Agency completed the first part of the analysis, identifying districts with a potential issue and incorrectly reported that information in its APR submissions in FFY 2005 and 2006. The data were reanalyzed and the TEA determined that identified districts were in compliance for 2005-06 and 2006-07. Additionally, the two districts have corrected the noncompliance identified and reported in the FFY 2006 APR. Methodology In the fall of 2008, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) refined its methodology to identify districts with disproportionate representation of racial and ethnic groups in special education and related services. The refinement was based on feedback from stakeholders and reflects an alignment to the methodologies used in the State’s Performance Based Monitoring Analysis System. A detailed description of the methodology used for Indicators 9 and 10 can be found on the TEA website at http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/special.ed/guidance/disprop/method.html Identification and Notification of Districts In October 2006, the TEA, using the methodology referenced above, identified 100 districts that met State defined criteria for disproportionate representation, both over and under, for Indicator 9. The following table reflects the data specific to Indicator 9: Number of Districts Identified for Indicator 9 Over Under Over and Under Total 55 29 16 100 Part B State Annual Performance Report for FFY 2007 February 1, 2009 (OMB NO: 1820-0624 / Expiration Date: 08-31-2009) Page 53

Identified districts were required to review policies, procedures, and practices related to the identification of students with disabilities. Upon the completion of this self assessment, districts were required to submit a written assurance statement affirming that its policies, procedures, and practices were in compliance with federal regulations and state rules related to the identification of students with disabilities. All districts submitted a written assurance statement indicating the disproportionate representation was not the result of inappropriate identification. Information about disproportionate representation can be found on the TEA website at http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/special.ed/guidance/disprop/disprop.html Actual Target Data for FFY 2007: a. # of districts with disproportionate representation that is the result of inappropriate identification 2006-07 2007-08 0 0 b. Districts in the state 1237 1230 Calculation: a / b * 100 0% 0% Discussion of Improvement Activities Completed and Explanation of Progress or Slippage that occurred for FFY 2007: I. Improvement Activities Completed The improvement activities related to disproportionate representation are interrelated to several other indicators in the Annual Performance Report (APR) including: � Indicator 1: Graduation Rate � Indicator 5: Educational Environments, Ages 6-21 (placements in the least restrictive environment) The data associated with the indicators above must be considered when addressing the disproportionate representation indicator. Specific improvement activities related to these areas include all the activities listed in Indicator 1 (Graduation). In December 2007 and June 2008, the TEA convened stakeholders to provide feedback on the methodologies for determining disproportionate representation in Indicators 9 and 10. Based on the feedback, the TEA refined its current methodology found on the TEA website at http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/special.ed/guidance/disprop/method.html. 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 9 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.
