    State Accountability Performance Standards & Ratings  

    The 2018 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 overall design of the accountability system evaluates the performance according to three domains:
    • Student Achievement Domain evaluates performance across all subjects for all students on STAAR assessments, College, Career, and Military Readiness (CCMR) indicators, and graduation rates.
    • School Progress Domain measures district and campus outcomes in two areas:
      • Academic Growth - the number of students that grew at least one year academically (or are on track) as measured by STAAR results and
      • Relative Performance - the achievement of all students relative to districts or campuses with similar economically disadvantaged percentages.
    • Closing the Gaps Domain uses disaggregated data to demonstrate differentials among racial/ethnic groups, socioeconomic backgrounds and other factors. The indicators included in this domain, as well as the domain’s construction, align the state accountability system with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

    The three domains will be combined to calculate an overall rating.

    Three Domains

    Rating Labels for Districts

    • A, B, C, or D: Assigned for overall performance and for performance in each domain to districts that meet the performance target for the letter grade
    • F: Assigned for overall performance and for performance in each domain to districts  that do not meet the performance target to earn at least a D

    A = Exemplary Performance

    B = Recognized Performance

    C = Acceptable Performance

    D = In Need of Improvement

    F = Unacceptable Performance

    Rating Labels for Campuses

    • Met Standard: Assigned for overall performance and for performance in each domain to campuses that meet the performance targets
    • Improvement Required: Assigned for overall performance and for performance in each domain to campuses that do not meet the performance targets

    2018 State Accountability Distinction Designations
    Campuses that receive an accountability rating of "Met Standard" are eligible to earn distinction designations. Distinction designations are awarded for achievement in several areas and are based on performance relative to a group of campuses of similar type, size, grade span, and student demographics.  For 2018, distinction designations are awarded in the following areas:
    • Academic Achievement in English Language Arts/Reading (campus only)
    • Academic Achievement in Mathematics (campus only)
    • Academic Achievement in Science (campus only)
    • Academic Achievement in Social Studies (campus only)
    • Top 25 Percent: Comparative Academic Growth (campus only)
    • Top 25 Percent: Comparative Closing the Gaps (campus only)

    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.
