School District Performance Ratings

Understanding What the Ratings Mean




New texas school district accountability ratings begin in 2013.

School districts and elementary and secondary schools are currently rated for performance according to the following accountability designations from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) – Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, and Academically Unacceptable.

It is important to note that the TEA is developing a new accountability system based on the new State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) tests, as well as other indicators. For that reason, the state won’t assign school accountability ratings for 2012; rather, the new accountability ratings will begin in 2013. For more information about the development of the new accountability system, visit: http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/perfreport/account/2013/faq.html.

Exemplary: At least 90 percent of all students and each student group passed TAKS reading, writing, math, social studies and science; less than 0.2 percent dropout rate; at least 94 percent attendance rate.

Recognized: At least 70 percent passed TAKS reading, writing, math, social studies and science; 0.7 percent or less dropout rate; at least 94 percent attendance rate.

Academically Acceptable: At least 60 percent passed TAKS reading, writing and social studies; at least 40 percent passed math; and at least 35 percent passed science; 1 percent or less dropout rate; at least 94 percent attendance rate.

Academically Unacceptable (Low-Performing Campus): Less than 40 percent passing any TAKS test in any subject area; greater than 6 percent dropout rate; at least 94 percent attendance. An  academically unacceptable or low-performing rating will not apply if attendance falls below 94 percent and is the only substandard indicator.
