The 83rd Texas Legislative Session created House Bill 5 (HB 5) requiring districts to develop a self-evaluation which assesses Student and Community Engagement and Compliance at both the district and campus level for fine arts, wellness and physical education, community and parental involvement, the 21st Century workforce development program, the second language acquisition program, the digital learning environment, dropout prevention strategies and educational programs for gifted and talented students.


Northwest ISD’s self-evaluation instrument was developed to provide our community with quantitative and qualitative information about our district’s trajectory on each indicator. The rubrics were developed with stakeholder input and based on indicators of excellence within each district program.  This self-evaluation for each program is divided into two categories: engagement and compliance. Engagement items are assessed on a rubric of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, and unacceptable indicators. Compliance items are assessed with a yes/no scale.
