Accountability Reports

From this site you may access the Accountability Summaries and Data Tables for Campuses or the District. These show each campus or district's accountability rating and the information used to determine those ratings.  The ratings are: Met Standard, Improvement Required, or Not Rated. In addition to the rating, the classification (Met Standards/Did Not Meet Standards) is shown for each performance index evaluated. To receive a Met Standard rating, campuses and districts must meet or exceed the target score on all indexes for which they have performance data.  An explanation of the Performance Indexes can be found below in the document, “Overview of Performance Index Framework.”

Distinction Designations. In addition to Accountability Ratings, this report identifies campuses that demonstrate progress that is better than 75% of the 40 campuses most like them and academic achievement that places them in the top 25% of those same campuses for Reading/ELA and Mathematics.

2019 State Accountability Rating System
 
Note on Distinctions: 

Distinction designations are awarded to campuses for outstanding performance in relation to 40 other similar campuses of similar type, size, grade span, and student demographics. A campus that receives an accountability rating of Met Standard is eligible for the following distinction designations in 2018. Districts that earn a rating of A, B, C, or D are eligible for a distinction designation in postsecondary readiness.

For 2019, distinction designations are awarded in the following areas:

  • Academic Achievement in English Language Arts/Reading (campus only)
  • Academic Achievement in Mathematics (campus only)
  • Academic Achievement in Science (campus only)
  • Academic Achievement in Social Studies (campus only)
  • Top 25 Percent: Comparative Academic Growth (campus only)
  • Top 25 Percent: Comparative Closing the Gaps (campus only)
  • Postsecondary Readiness (district and campus)

A campus earns a distinction designation if it is in the top quartile (Q1) of its comparison group for at least 33 percent (for high schools and K–12 campuses) or 50 percent (for elementary and middle schools) of the indicators used to award the distinction.

For an indicator to be used to evaluate campuses for a distinction designation, at least 20 campuses in the comparison group must have data for that indicator. If fewer than 20 campuses have data for an indicator, it cannot be used to evaluate campuses for the distinction. This often affects schools with non-traditional grade spans.

Annual Performance Reports

Texas Consolidated School Rating Report (through 2016-2017)

School Report Cards

The school report card (SRC) combines accountability ratings, data from the Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), and financial information to give a broad view of campus performance. Available for each campus in Texas, the SRC is intended specifically to inform parents and guardians about a school’s individual characteristics and its academic performance.
