In 2018, the state academic accountability system underwent an overhaul under House Bill (HB) 22 (85th Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2017). HB 22 established three domains of indicators to evaluate the academic performance of districts, open-enrollment charter schools, and campuses: Student Achievement, School Progress, and Closing the Gaps. HB 22 requires the commissioner to assign districts and campuses a rating of A, B, C, D, or F for overall performance, as well as for performance in each domain. Overview of the 2019 Accountability System

The overall design of the accountability system evaluates performance according to three domains:

Student Achievement 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 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 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 federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

The purpose of the state accountability system is first and foremost to improve student performance. The system sets reasonable standards for adequacy and identifies and publicly recognize high levels of performance and performance improvement. The system provides information about levels of student performance in each school district and on each campus, and it identifies schools and districts with inadequate performance and provides assistance.
