Accountability & Assessment
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 rollout of this accountability system.
A-F Accountability Ratings
The first A-F Accountability ratings for all of the school districts in Texas will be released with the 2018 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. 

The three Domains are:
  • Student Achievement
  • School Progress and
  • Closing the Gaps

On August 15, 2018 Texas districts received a rating of A, B, C, D or F in each domain as well as an overall performance while campuses will receive a rating of "Met Standard" or "Improvement Required". Beginning August 15, 2019 all districts and campuses will receive a rating of A, B, C, D or F in each domain as well as an overall performance. During the year of transition, 2018-2019, HB 22 requires a legislative report by January 1, 2019 of "what if" A, B, C, D or F ratings using 2018 Accountability data. This "what if" report will not have any additional intervention requirements attached to it.
