Campus Accountability Ratings

On August 1, 2015, state accountability data was provided to districts, campuses, and charter schools by TEA’s Division of Performance Reporting via the accountability application within the Texas Education Agency Secure Environment (TEASE), and on August 8, 2014, state accountability data and ratings were released publicly.

Met Standard

State accountability ratings are based on a framework of four indexes that are used to  evaluate the performance of each public campus and district in the state. The framework  includes a range of indicators to calculate a score for each index and enables a thorough  assessment of campus and district effectiveness.

Accountability ratings are based on 
achieving a target established for each performance index.

  • Index 1: Student Achievement provides a snapshot of performance across subjects.
  • Index 2: Student Progress measures year-to-year student progress by subject and student group.
  • Index 3: Closing Performance Gaps tracks advanced academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students and the lowest performing racial/ethnic student groups.
  • Index 4: Postsecondary Readiness emphasizes the importance of earning a high school diploma that provides students with the foundation necessary for success in college, the workforce, job training programs, or the military.
 
Three labels are used to rate the overall performance of districts and campuses 

  • Met Standard, 
  • Met Alternative Standard, or 
  • Improvement Required 
 
The following campuses were identified as Met Standard:
 
J. L. Everhart Elementary School
Johnston-McQueen Elementary School

Identification for Interventions


The state accountability system includes the performance index framework and system safeguard measures, which are explained in detail in the 2015 Accountability Manual. Engagement in the TAIS continuous improvement process is required if the district, campus, or charter school:

  • Received the rating of Improvement Required (IR) due to failing to meet the target on one or more of the performance indexes; or
  • Failed to meet the performance target for one or more system safeguards.

The following campus was identified as Improvement Required: 
 
Ware Elementary School
