For 2015-2016, the state accountability system assigned ratings to every campus and district in the Texas public education system based on student achievement in four areas as outlined by the Performance Index Framework:
Index one: Student Achievement absolute performance on this year's STAAR Assessments
Index two: Student Progress measuring student growth from one STAAR Assessment to the next
Index three: Closing Performance Gaps to emphasize high-level achievement for your previous year's lowest performing groups
Index four: Postsecondary Readiness is based on the STAAR Postsecondary Readiness Indicator, as well as, additional measures for high schools including student diploma plans, participation in advanced courses, college entrance exam results, completing coherent CTE course sequences
House Bill 208, passed by the 84th Texas Legislature, requires changes to the public school accountability system to be implemented in August 2018. For an overview of what will be included, please click here.
