AUSTIN - The State Board of Education (SBOE) is issuing a survey in English and Spanish to seek public input about the state’s current assessment and accountability programs and gather suggestions for future program development. The survey will be open online to all Texans through June 30.
The information gathered from the survey and the Community Conversations will be compiled into a report and presented to the SBOE for its consideration at its July 19-22 meeting. Once adopted, the report will be provided to legislative leaders and the Texas Commission on Next Generation Assessments and Accountability.
The survey is available in English at http://www.surveygizmo.com/…/State-Assessments-and-Accounta… and in Spanish at http://www.surveygizmo.com/…/Encuesta-de-evaluaciones-y-res…. Bahorich encourages Texans to share the link to the surveys to encourage widespread participation.
Comments gathered at each of the Community Conversations are available at http://tea.texas.gov/…/Community_Conversations_about_Asses…/.
