A to F Accountability
HB 22 establishes three domains of indicators to evaluate the academic performance of districts and campuses: Student Achievement, School Progress, and Closing the Gaps. It requires the commissioner to adopt rules to assign districts a rating of A, B, C, D, or F for overall performance, as well as for performance in each domain, beginning in August 2018. Campuses will receive A–F ratings beginning in August 2019.
HB 22 requires the commissioner to report to the legislature by January 1, 2019, the overall and domain performance rating each campus would have received for the 2017–18 school year if the A–F rating system for campuses had been in place.
On April 20, 2018, the commissioner published his final decisions for 2018 Accountability. Supporting materials can be located at: https://tea.texas.gov/2018AccountabilityDevelopment/.
Key chapters of the Accountability Manual are expected to be posted in May with a public comment period to follow.
