Review Accountability and Assessment sessions that are a part of the Professional Development Series Cooperative.

Focus groups comprised of key stakeholders statewide have redesigned the Texas Accountability System to address statutory policy goals for improving student achievement, determining levels of progress toward advanced performance, closing achievement gaps, and promoting post-secondary readiness through recommended and advanced graduation programs. Increased rigor and readiness have become commonplace terms with the transition to the STAAR assessment and the roll out of this accountability system.

A-F Accountability Ratings
The passing of HB 22 during the 85th Texas Legislative session established three domains by which academic achievements of districts and campuses will be measured:
  • Student Achievement,
  • School Progress, and
  • Closing the Gaps

All districts and campuses receive a rating of A, B, C, D, or F in each domain as well as an overall performance rating.
