    State Accountability Performance Standards & Ratings  

     
    The 2019 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.

    Rating Labels

    • A letter grade is ssigned for overall performance and for performance in each domain to districts and campuses.

    A = Exemplary Performance

    B = Recognized Performance

    C = Acceptable Performance

    D = In Need of Improvement

    F = Unacceptable Performance

    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.
