State Accountability Performance Standards & Ratings  

 
The 2016 campus and district ratings are based on a system that uses various indicators to provide greater detail on the performance of a district or charter and individual campuses throughout the state. The performance index framework includes four areas:
  • Student Achievement – Provides a snapshot of performance across all subjects.
  • Student Progress – Measures year-to-year student progress by subject and student group.
  • Closing Performance Gaps – Tracks advanced academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students and the lowest performing racial/ethnic student groups.
  • Postsecondary Readiness – Emphasizes the importance of earning a high school diploma that provides students with the foundation necessary for success in college, the workforce, job training programs, or the military.

Summary of 2016 Accountability Rating System 

To meet state statutory requirements, the Texas Education Agency's state accountability system must assign ratings that designate acceptable and unacceptable performance for campuses and districts. Districts and campuses are assigned a rating that is based on meeting a target for each performance index. 
 
Met Standard -Indicates acceptable performance and is assigned to districts and campuses that meet the target on all required indices for which performance data is available.

To receive the Met Standard Rating in 2016, districts and campuses must meet the performance index target on the following indices:

Index 1 OR Index 2         AND         Index 3          AND       Index 4 
 
Improvement Required - Indicates unacceptable performance and is assigned to districts, campuses, charter operators, and alternative education campuses (AECs) that do not meet the targets on all required indexes for which performance data is available.
 
2016 Index targets are as follows:

Other Information

The Student Success Initiative (SSI) grade advancement requirements apply to enrolled grades 5 and 8 students who take the STAAR reading and mathematics tests at grades 5 and 8. It was enacted by the 76th Texas Legislature in 1999 and modified by the 81st Texas Legislature in 2009.  As specified by these requirements, a student may advance to the next grade level only by passing these tests or by unanimous decision of his or her grade placement committee that the student is likely to perform at grade level after additional instruction.  Parents are encouraged to actively monitor their student’s progress by communicating regularly with the school.
