    2017 State Accountability

    Accountability ratings are assigned to every district and campus in the Texas public education system each year. 

    For the most current, complete information on Texas accountability, visit the Texas Education Agency (TEA) website at http://tea.texas.gov/2017accountability.aspx. TEA offers a quick overview of the State of Texas Accountability System and what goes into the annual ratings of schools, districts and charters.

    In 2009, the Texas Legislature passed House Bill 3, mandating the creation of an entirely new accountability system focused on public school students’ postsecondary readiness. TEA has worked closely with public school personnel and others to develop an integrated accountability system, including the new testing program, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR)

    The system will assign an accountability rating -- Met Standard, Met Alternative Standard, or Improvement Required -- based on the evaluation of four performance indexes:

    • Student Achievement
    • Student Progress
    • Closing Performance Gaps
    • Postsecondary Readiness

    In addition, this system will award distinction designations to campuses based on campus performance compared to a group of campuses across Texas of similar type, size, and student demographics. These designations acknowledge that these campuses (1) meet accountability standards and (2) demonstrate outstanding academic performance for indicators other than those used to determine accountability ratings.

    Also, the system will apply system safeguards to ensure that performance on each subject, indicator, and student group is addressed and that all state and federal accountability requirements are incorporated into the accountability system.

    Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR)

    Beginning with the 2012 - 2013 school year, the performance report formerly known as the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) report is now the Texas Academic Performance Report. This yearly report provides comprehensive data on the performance of students in every district and campus in Texas. More information on the TAPR can be found at https://rptsvr1.tea.texas.gov/perfreport/tapr/2017/index.html

    School Report Card (SRC)

    The Texas Education Agency (TEA) provides a yearly School Report Card for each public school in Texas. The purpose of the School Report Card is to inform each student's parents or guardians about the school's performance and characteristics. Where possible, the School Report Card will present the school information in relation to the district, the state, and a comparable group of schools. The School Report Card also includes the student, staff, financial, and performance information required by statute, as well as any explanations and additional information deemed appropriate to the intent of the report. More information on the School Report Card can be found at https://rptsvr1.tea.texas.gov/perfreport/src/2017/campus.srch.html
