Special Education Professional Developments and Meetings
Performance-Based Monitoring (PBM) staff develops the Performance-Based Monitoring Analysis System (PBMAS), an automated data system that reports annually on the performance of school districts and charter schools in selected program areas (bilingual education/English as a second language, career and technical education, special education, and certain Title programs under the No Child Left Behind Act).
The Division of School Improvement, formerly known as the Program Monitoring and Interventions Division, develops and implements statewide review processes for special education (SPED). These processes promote program effectiveness, improve student performance, and monitor compliance for all students served through SPED programs.
The PBM system includes annual data validation analyses that examine districts' leaver and dropout records, discipline data, and student assessment data. Additional data analyses, including random audits, are conducted as necessary to ensure the data submitted to the Texas Education Agency are accurate and reliable.
