    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. To see the brief video, visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbEgrdijuc8&feature=youtu.be.

    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.

    Community & Student Engagement Accountability

    House Bill (HB) 5 created the Community and Student Engagement Accountability Rating (TEC 39.0545). The community engagement requirement is an opportunity for districts to showcase areas of excellence and success as well as recognize areas in need of improvement and set future goals valued in the community. The statute requires each district to evaluate and designate a performance rating for the district and each of its campuses in the district based on criteria set by a local committee.

    Factors to be evaluated:

    1. Fine Arts
    2. Wellness and Physical Education
    3. Community and Parent Involvement
    4. 21st Workforce Development Program
    5. Second Language Acquisition
    6. Digital Learning Environment
    7. Dropout Prevention Strategies
    8. Educational Programs for GT Students
    9. Compliance with statutory reporting and policy requirements

    In addition to HB 5, Houst Bill (HB) 2804 requires each school district and campus to select three (3) Community and Student Engagement programs to evaluate and assign a letter grade and an overall letter grade that will be included for accountability purposes. The three (3) Community and Student Engagement programs to be used for accountability purposes for the 2017 - 2018 school year for Pearland ISD can be found here: Pearland ISD CaSE 2017-18

    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/2016/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/2016/campus.srch.html
