  • La Porte ISD Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services (RIPICS) Plan 

    La Porte ISD (LPISD) applied for ARP, ESSER III funding. The purpose of ESSER III is to help safely reopen and sustain the safe operation of schools and address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on students. We have developed our La Porte ISD Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services (RIPICS) Plan.  During the period in which ESSER IIII funds are available, LPISD will review and revise the plan at least every six months. These revisions will consider all parent and community feedback, as well as updated guidance from the Texas Education Agency.

    During the initial development of the plan, student data informed input from staff throughout the district. Additionally, staff, community, and grade 6-12 students had the opportunity to complete surveys. Input was also sought from the District Education Improvement Committee on May 24, 2021.  Needs were prioritized based on wellness and instructional continuity. The draft plan was presented to the public through the Board of Trustees Meeting held on Wednesday, June 9, 2021. All feedback was considered in revising the plan.  The initial plan was posted on July 21, 2021.  The plan was reviewed, revised, and re-posted on February 17, 2022.  The District Education Improvement Committee met on June 6, 2022 to review the plan and discuss possible revisions.  This feedback as well as current CDC, TEA, and UIL guidelines guided our plan moving into the 2022-2023 school year.  To view La Porte ISD's current RIPICS plan, please click here.

  • Texas provides annual academic accountability ratings to its public school districts, charters and schools. The ratings are based on performance on state standardized tests; graduation rates; and college, career, and military readiness outcomes. The ratings examine student achievement, school progress, and whether districts and campuses are closing achievement gaps among various student groups. 

    The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), formerly known as the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS), pull together a wide range of information annually on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas. The reports, available back to the 2003–04 school year, provide extensive information on staff, programs, and demographics for each school and district. Additional products that provide performance data are the School Report Cards and the Snapshot: School District Profiles.

    Additionally, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), requires each State education agency to prepare and publish an annual Federal Report Card with state-, district- and campus-level data.
