Developed in conjunction with the Texas Rural Education Association, or TREA, this program was created in response to the "community and student engagement" requirements passed by the 83rd Texas Legislature, which gives school districts an opportunity to evaluate themselves and their campuses on programs that are not being reflected on the state’s accountability system. Evaluation criteria are intended to be locally developed with input from the community and students. This tool will help districts and campuses give recognition to the great things that are taking place in public schools across the state and assist in collecting feedback from the community and students on various programs. CASE Solved is a tool that is intended to be simple but effective.
After you register an Administrators account, your school district may choose from a pre-loaded list of questions and programs that may apply to your district and/or campuses. You will also have the ability to “add others” into the program that are specific to your community and schools. The program will populate the color coded “slider” evaluation tool based on individual selections. As evaluations are submitted, the program will average the responses to produce a “summative report” in all eight primary categories. The program will also allow each district and/or campus to view summative reports for each “sub-category” within the eight primary categories for departmentalized planning and goal setting. With local control being the intent of this legislation, CASE Solved does not decide what is “Exemplary” or “Unacceptable” on the summative evaluation. That decision is left to the “District” or LEA.
Over the past two years, I have found CASE Solved is an excellent, very easy to use resource to assist my district with HB 5 Community Engagement requirements. The minimal time needed to set my district up with CASE Solved compared with the product produced is outstanding. I also use the community and parent comments to assist my district with planning in many different programs throughout the year.

CASE Solved has been a great solution to the Community and Student Engagement evaluation process required under HB 5. The addition of the HR piece this school year has given us another easy tool to use in evaluating our central office personnel. It is easy to use and extremely cost effective.
By using CASE Solved, our team has a concise way to compile data and a user friendly way to seek community feedback. The reports are easy to read and help relay information efficiently.
