THIS IS A DRAFT DOCUMENT - IN PROGRESS.

IT HAS BEEN PUBLISHED IN ORDER TO BE SHARED WITH CLIENT FOR COLLABORATION.


The TEA Academic Achievement Record guidelines require LEAs to report the academic achievement record (AAR) of students who have completed the or Foundation High School Program (FHSP). The year in which a student enters 9th grade determines the graduation requirements they must complete to receive a high school diploma. The AAR form serves as the academic record for each student and must be maintained permanently by the LEA.

The Aeries Transcripts page allows you to generate a student AAR which displays a student's previous year grade history, student ranking and calculated GPAs.


The 2012 Minimum Standards for the AAR is the latest standard.


FHSP was established by House Bill 5 and adopted as of the 2014-2015 school year. Not all information in the 2012 Minimum Standards has remained valid. See the following State Board of Education (SBOE) Texas Administration Code (TAC) sections:



Information provided below is for informational purposes only. Refer to official TEA documentation for confirmation and additional information.


IMPORTANT:

  • The AAR cannot contain information disclosing a student's disability.
  • The AAR cannot contain information indicating a student has attended a juvenile justice alternative education program (JJAEP). Instead, the AAR should include the name and CDCN of the student's home campus. (On Transcript Definition page - Record Details tab, select Home School instead of Current School.)
  • The AAR cannot contain an indication of completion of Individualized Education Program (IEP) for special education.


REMINDER: TREx can only include notes and attachments for transcripts sent to other high schools. Transcripts sent to institutions of higher education may not contain notes and attachments.

Setup

District:

  1. Use of District GPAs must be enabled at the district level, if used.

  2. On District Settings, indicate if you want to use Optimized Graduation Status logic. Select the Do Not Optimize Graduation Status option accordingly. See Graduation Requirements - Graduation Status section. (DPT)

  3. On School Options (district), upload a district logo to print on transcripts, if preferred.

  4. On GPA Configurations  (district) if using district-defined GPAs:
    • Inactivate any built-in GPAs that are not needed.
    • Create custom district GPAs.
    • Assign district-defined GPAs to specific schools or cohorts (Schools and Cohorts heading).
    • Modify weight factors for the district-defined GPAs if needed (GPA Weight heading).

  5. Set up Transcript Indicator Definitions.
    • Special Explanation Codes
      • Courses/activities that serve as PE substitutions 
      • High school programs for students receiving special education services
      • Articulated agreement (Code A)
      • Dual-credit courses (Code D)
      • Other special explanation codes

  6. On Texas State Reporting under Code Translations, if any schools are using Endorsement Codes that are different from the default values (MS, AH, ST, BI, and PS), they need to be mapped to the default values.


School:

  1. On School Options
    • Indicate if the school will allow issuing grades and partial credits to students. Select the School Option Allow Issue Credit on Classes / Course Attendance Pages option accordingly. See Copying Grades and Credits to Transcripts for Individual Students.

    • Upload the principal's signature file to print on the transcript signature line, if preferred.

  2. On Course History Institutions, add any schools or institutions that will need to be displayed on student transcripts. (CHI)

  3. On Update Code Tables, add any needed codes:
    • Course Names and Codes: CRS.CO or HIS.CO

      • Performance Acknowledgements
      • Distinguished Level of Achievement
      • Speech requirement
      • CPR requirement
      • Peace Officer Interaction requirement

    • Graduation Status Tracks: REQ.GRT

    • Course Subject Areas or Departments: CRS.S1 or CRS.DC

    • Service IDs (PEIMS code table C022) CRS.SVC
      • Add local courses. All locally developed courses must be assigned an eight-digit service ID number (alphanumeric, with last three digits assigned locally, such as 84000XXX Locally Developed Course - English Language Arts).

    • Service ID Description Suffix: CRS.SDS (appends a one-digit code to the abbreviated C022 name which can be used to indicate fall/spring semesters of the same course)

    • Course Characteristics: CCH.CD, especially if using district GPAs by cohort, create a characteristic such as "Cohort YYYY." When creating a District GPA, the Course Characteristic will be specified.

    • Endorsements (GES.ED) The following are the default values (hard coded). Codes only need to be added if they are different from these codes. If different, they need to be mapped using Code Translations(district).
      • Multidisciplinary = MS
      • Arts and Humanities = AH
      • STEM = ST
      • Business and Industry = BI
      • Public Services = PS

  4. On Activities and Awards, add entries for Speech, CPR, and Peace Officer Interaction requirements, as well as Distinguished Level of Achievement and Performance Acknowledgement.

  5. On Courses, verify the accuracy of all data in the course table. See Graduation Requirements - Course Table Accuracy section and Courses - General Information. (CRS)

      All locally developed courses must be assigned an eight-digit service ID number (alphanumeric, with last three digits assigned locally, such as 84000XXX Locally Developed Course - English Language Arts).
      The course number must begin with 8 (e.g., 8XXXXXXX).
  6. On Master Schedule, ensure the following:
    • CTE Hours field is set correctly for each section of CTE course.

  7. On Off Grade Courses, add any courses that may be taken grades 6-8 that would generate high school credit. (OGC)

  8. On Graduation Requirements, add any graduation tracks that will be assigned to students. (REQ)

  9. On Graduation Endorsement Setup
    • Add a pathway for each FHSP endorsement. For each pathway, add requirements. For each requirement, add Course Clusters that can accomplish the requirement.
    • Add a pathway for CTE

  10. On Testing Control Tablepage, ensure all standardized tests (EOC, STAAR, etc.) are entered (CTL).

  11. On Transcript Definition(for each school and each transcript used):
    • On the Generaltab, set up transcript(s), including style (3-column or 1-column) and which information should print on a student's transcript. (TDF)
      NOTE: If using District GPAs, under GPA Options, select the District GPA options (right). Disable all options associated with the built-in GPAs (left) if not using.
    • On the Terms tab, determine the terms to include when printing transcripts.
