School Ratings

HB5 Student and Community Engagement
In the 83rd Legislative Session, the Legislature passed House Bill 5 relating to public school accountability, including assessment and curriculum requirements. Within the bill, Section 46 required each district to assign a performance rating of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable for the district and each of its campuses for overall performance and nine individual factors.
Accountability Ratings
In 2013, the Texas Education Agency began a new system to evaluate school districts and schools. This system designates schools as “Met Standard” or “Improvement Required,” based on several factors: student achievement on State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) tests administered last spring, student progress (improvement), success in closing performance gaps, and post-secondary readiness (for districts and high schools only).
