In keeping with the intent and purpose of Section 29.081 of the Texas Education Code addressing Supplemental Compensatory, Intensive, and Accelerated Instruction, Round Rock ISD provides compensatory education services (SCE services), which are supplemental to the regular education program for students identified as at risk of dropping out of school. The 13 state identified criteria are used to determine a student’s at risk status.

A student at-risk of dropping out of school includes each student who is under 21 years of age and who:

  • Is in prekindergarten, kindergarten or grade 1, 2, or 3 and did not perform satisfactorily on a readiness test or assessment instrument administered during the current school year;
  • Is in grade 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12 and did not maintain an average equivalent to 70 on a scale of 100 in two or more subjects in the foundation curriculum during a semester in the preceding or current school year or is not maintaining such an average in two or more subjects in the foundation curriculum in the current semester;
  • Was not advanced from one grade level to the next for one or more school years; (Note: From 2010-2011 forward, TEC 29.081 (d-1) excludes from this criteria prekindergarten or kindergarten students who were not advanced to the next grade level as a result of a documented request by the student’s parent.)
  • Did not perform satisfactorily on an assessment instrument administered to the student under TEC Subchapter B, Chapter 39, and who has not in the previous or current school year subsequently performed on that instrument or another appropriate instrument at a level equal to at least 110 percent of the level of satisfactory performance on that instrument;
