Superintendent Priority Performance Goal 1:
COMMUNITY BASED ACCOUNTABLITY SYSTEM
Coppell ISD will design a new community based accountability system (CBAS) to ensure that all students are future-ready learners and better assess our students learning.
We have been working with the Texas Performance Assessment Consortium (TPAC) to develop an accountability system that can be used in Coppell ISD. The TPAC Core Group is Dr. Angie Applegate, Dr. Greg Axelson, Steffany Batik, Dr. Deana Dynis, Cooper Hilton, Brad Hunt and Debbie Youngs. We have met six times as a whole group, then have recently divided into smaller groups in an effort to further continue the work.

Superintendent Priority Performance Goal 3:
STAFF DEVELOPMENT AND RETENTION
By May 31, 2019 we will increase our employee retention rate to 90% and improve the development of the district leadership team to better serve the needs of Coppell ISD.
We have experienced an overall reduction in staff turnover and we are on track to see this trend continue for the 2018-2019 school year. We have expanded our stay interview process, as well as continuing our exit interviews, to access any trends or identity themes that have an impact on staff retention. In addition, our Human Resources team has made campus and department visits throughout the year. These visits serve as an opportunity for staff to ask questions and receive information from the HR Team, as well as allow our HR Team to interface directly with staff members.
In reference to the development of the district leadership team, we have hosted two successful District Leadership Academies with positive feedback from each session. Approximately 27 people have completed this training. We also expanded the leadership training to focus on beginning and new to CISD campus administrators with the development of the New/Beginning Administrator Academy which was attended by all new to campus administration and those campus administrators who are new to CISD.
