State Accountability

State Ratings 

The overall design of the 2022 Accountability System evaluates performance according to three domains:

  • Student Achievement Domain
    • Evaluates performance across all subjects for all students, on both general and alternate assessments; College, Career, and Military Readiness (CCMR) indicators; and graduation rates. 
  • School Progress Domain
    • Measures district and campus outcomes in two areas: the number of students that grew at least one year academically (or are on track) as measured by STAAR results and 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 background, and other factors. The indicators included in this domain, as well as the domain’s construction, align the state accountability system with the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). 

 

Districts and campuses receive an overall rating, as well as a rating for each domain. The rating labels for districts and campuses are as follows.

  • A, B, or C: Assigned for overall performance and for performance in each domain to districts and campuses (including those evaluated under alternative education accountability (AEA)) that meet
    the performance target for the letter grade
  • Not Rated: Senate Bill 1365: Assigned in 2022 for overall performance to districts and campuses that do not meet the performance target to earn at least a C.
