Every year the TEA (Texas Education Agency) releases the year’s accountability ratings for more than 1,200 school districts, charters and more than 8,500 campuses.

Over the last several years the ratings as well as the system that creates them has changed, shifting from the Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable and Unacceptable ratings of the TAKS test to the more seemingly streamlined Pass/Fail system of the STAAR test. In order to show specific areas of higher achievement the new STAAR ratings also incorporate 7 distinctions in the areas of: Reading/English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Top 25% Student Progress, Top 25% Closing Performance Gaps and
Post-Secondary Readiness.

This year the TEA has published a couple of short  informational videos explaining how the ratings are calculated.
