Federal and State Accountability
Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR)
Texas annually rates its public schools and districts on the academic performance of their students through the Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), formerly known as the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS). The TAPR reports provide a great deal of performance information about every public school and district in the state. These reports also provide extensive profile information about staff, finances, demographics and programs. The Texas Education Agency provides the TAPR report every year. More information and the district and campus TAPR reports can be found on the TEA website. (Note: No STAAR results are available on the 2011-12 AEIS Reports.)

In addition to the accountability results based on learner assessment data, every Texas school district under the requirements of House Bill 5 was required beginning in the 2014-2015 school year, to evaluate each campus and the district as a whole on nine factors and assign ratings of Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, or Unacceptable in each of those factors based on district developed rubrics. These factors and rating comprise the Community and Student Engagement Accountability System (CSEAS).
These ratings allow each district and campus the opportunity to showcase the broad spectrum of services, supports, and activities available to learners and the community as a whole and begin the process of widening the accountability measures beyond standardized assessments.

Performance-Based Monitoring Analysis System (PBMAS)
PBMAS reports are provided annually from the state (TEA) regarding their performance of school districts and charter schools in the areas of bilingual education/English as a second language, career and technical education, special education, and certain Title programs under the No Child Left Behind Act. The report is provided at the district, region and state levels.
School Report Cards
School Report Cards are produced annually for each Texas public school campus by the Texas Education Agency. Information included in the School Report Cards include:
Class Size Averages
School Financial Information
Texas Success Initiatives (TSI)-Higher Education Readiness Component
2017-18 Federal Report Cards
The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires each local education agency (LEA) that receives Title I Part A funding to disseminate specific LEA and Campus-level data to 1) all LEA campuses, 2) parents of all enrolled students, and 3) the general public via widely available public means such as posting on the Internet, distribution to the media, or distribution through public agencies. To meet this requirement the Texas Education Agency (TEA) provides these statistics at the state level and for each district or campus that is required.
Financial Management Report (FIRST)
All Texas school districts are required to report the results of the state’s financial accountability system, Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST). The FIRST ratings are based upon the evaluation of 16 criteria. Through the evaluation, FIRST aims to improve the management of school districts' financial resources.
