Performance Reporting is responsible for compiling and analyzing data to develop and report meaningful accountability ratings that help Texas public schools meet the educational needs of all students. As part of administering the state’s public school accountability system, the department publishes assessment reporting and accountability information in several different formats, for different audiences, and for different purposes.
The department also provides guidance and resources to help school administrators, teachers, parents, and the general public understand and benefit from the state’s accountability information.
The Accountability Ratings site shows ratings as well as the data used to determine the ratings for each campus and district. The site also shows the distinction designations earned by campuses. The 2019 Accountability System webpage is now available.
The Local Accountability System (LAS) allows districts and open-enrollment charter schools to develop local accountability system plans for their campuses. Local accountability plans may vary by school type (elementary school, middle school, high school, and K–12) and by school group (magnet schools, early college high schools, etc.), but must apply equally to all campuses as applicable by school type and group. Once approved by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), it is expected that a plan be operational and relatively unchanged for three to five years.
The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), formerly known as the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) reports, pull together a wide range of information annually on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas. The reports also provide extensive information on staff, programs, and demographics for each school and district.
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.
The Snapshot provides an overview of public education in Texas for a particular school year that includes a profile of basic characteristics for each district.
The Texas Performance Reporting System (TPRS) provides additional performance reports and results not previously available.
The Texas Consolidated School Rating Report (TCSR) combines the accountability rating, distinction designations, Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) rating, and community and student engagement rating for each district and campus in Texas.
The Texas School Accountability Dashboard makes it possible to find clear and concise accountability information and demographics for an individual school, an entire school district, or the state as a whole. It also allows anyone to easily compare districts or schools.
The Assessment Scoring and Reporting site shows information related to various student assessment reports and applicable scoring documents and resources.
