Texas law requires all students who do not achieve approaches or higher on STAAR grades 3 through 8 or EOC assessments be provided accelerated instruction. These requirements, modified by House Bill 4545 of the 87th legislature and recently updated with the passage of House Bill 1416 in the 88th legislature, provide that qualifying students must be:
Assigned a TIA designated teacher for the subsequent school year in the applicable subject area;
Provided supplemental instruction aligned with the research on high impact tutoring in the TEKS for the applicable grade levels and subject area in the following manner:
No less than 15 or 30 hours depending on student performance and is provided in the summer or at least once per week in the school year;
Limited to two subjects per year, prioritizing math and RLA;
Provided in a group of no more than four students, unless the parent or guardian of each student in the group authorizes a larger group;
Designed to assist the student in achieving satisfactory performance in the applicable grade level and subject area and includes effective instructional materials designed for supplemental instruction;
Provided by a person with training in the applicable instructional materials for the supplemental instruction and provided by one person for the entirety of their accelerated instruction.
Coppell ISD is utilizing guidance provided by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to develop Accelerated Instruction implementation guidelines for the campuses.
Campuses will be in communication with parents regarding the specific support for their students.
