Accountability

Each year, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) publishes a state report for the district and a report card for each school based on the previous school year. TEA uses data collected through Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) and other sources to produce Texas Academic Performance Each year, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) publishes a state report for the district and a report card for each school based on the previous school year. TEA uses data collected through Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) and other sources to produce Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR). Click on the titles below to access the latest reports.

 

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 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 TAPRs were previously known as the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) Reports. Those reports were published from 1990-91 to 2011-12. They may be found at the AEIS Archive.

 

The Glossary for the Texas Academic Performance Report provides definitions and explanation of each performance rating described by education code. More information can be found on the TEA website Performance Reporting Resources.

 

The School Report Cards include select information from the TAPR. 

 

 

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.

 

 

Texas Performance Reporting System (TPRS) integrates state and federal reporting requirements. The most comprehensive state academic accountability report published by TEA, it combines information previously released in the state accountability reports, the Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), and the School Report Card and includes results for student groups not previously reported.

 

 

The Texas Consolidated School Rating Report (TCSR) combines performance information from several different sources and reports it for each Texas public school district and campus. It contains ratings for three areas:

 

  • State academic accountability ratings and distinction designations for 2012–13, 2013–14, 2014–15, 2015–16, and 2016–17
  • State financial accountability ratings reported in School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (School FIRST) for 2012–13, 2013–14, 2014–15, 2015–16, and 2016–17
  • Locally assigned Community and Student Engagement ratings and statutory compliance statuses for 2013–14, 2014–15, 2015–16, and 2016–17

 

Community and Student Engagement Ratings, Texas Education Code §39.0545, requires each school district to evaluate itself and each of its campuses in the area of community and student engagement and assign ratings of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable. The ratings are based on locally determined criteria. Districts must also indicate whether they have complied with statutory reporting and policy requirements. 

 

 

Distinction Designations are awarded in recognition of outstanding achievement in academic areas in addition to those evaluated under state accountability. Campus distinctions are based on indicators of student performance in comparison to 40 similar campuses (Texas Education Code [TEC] §§39.201–203). 

 

 

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 2017 Accountability Manual provides a complete explanation of all aspects of the accountability system. 

 

The 2017 Accountability Rating System Overview provides a one page summary of the state accountability system.  

 

TEA Pocket Edition has been published annually since 1991-92 school year. Pocket Edition reports a variety of state-level statistics on topics such as: Students; TAKS Performance & Participation; Graduates & college Admissions; Attendance, Completion & Dropout; Accountability Ratings; Personnel; and Finances.
