TO THE ADMINISTRATOR ADDRESSED:

SUBJECT:            Implementation of Title I School Improvement Program (SIP) interventions for the

                                2013-2014 school year.

The Texas Education Agency (Agency) continues conversations with the United States Department of Education (USDE) requesting to waive specific provisions of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by P.L. 107-110 No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001.

Due to the ongoing negotiations, local educational agencies (LEAs) will not be required to implement current Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)-related School Improvement Program (SIP) requirements prior to the start of school year 2013-2014. This delay in implementation is a temporary suspension pending the outcome of the continuing waiver negotiations. Determinations of which federal School Improvement Program requirements will be implemented for the 2013-2014 school year will be communicated upon notice.

2012-2013 School Year

The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), provides options for school choice. Parents of children enrolled at Title I campuses that are in stage 1 or higher, have the option to transfer to a school that is NOT in a “School Improvement Program (SIP)” stage within the Judson Independent School District.

The Judson Independent School District will pay for transportation to the new school. Students will be allowed to remain at the new campus, until the student reaches the highest grade at the campus. The district will continue to pay for transportation if the student’s home campus remains in a “School Improvement” stage.

The deadline for "School Choice" transfer is September 13, 2012.
