The accountability system is used by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to evaluate the performance of public school districts and campuses.
Accountability Rating System
Accountability Reports. The new TXSchools.gov website contains interactive accountability rating summaries and detailed reports for each district, campus, and open-enrollment charter school in the state of Texas. From this site you may access the Accountability Summaries and Data Tables for Campuses or Districts. These show each campus or district's accountability rating and the information used to determine those ratings. Performance information is also available at the Region level and the State level.

Texas Academic Performance Report
The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) pull together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas every year. Performance is shown disaggregated by student groups, including ethnicity and low income status. The reports also provide extensive information on school and district staff, programs, and student demographics.
From this website you can access Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) for Campuses, Districts, Region, or State for the 2018-19 school year. The reports are available as downloadable PDF files as well as HTML. The glossary is available in English and in Spanish.
The School Report Card (SRC)
The School Report Card combines accountability ratings, data from the Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), and financial information to give a broad view of campus performance. Available for each campus in Texas, the SRC is intended specifically to inform parents and guardians about a school’s individual characteristics and its academic performance.
The 2017-18 school report cards are now available.
The school report card definitions, updated each year, explain several of the terms used in the SRC.
The school report card definitions are also available in Spanish / Español.
