District Ratings

  • The 85th Texas Legislature passed House Bill (HB) 22, establishing three domains for measuring the academic performance of districts and campuses:  Student Achievement, School Progress, and Closing the Gaps. Districts will receive 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 also receive A-F ratings beginning in August 2019. 

    Student Achievement Domain

      • For elementary and middle/junior high schools the domain score is based solely on the average of students earning Approaches Grade Level, Meets Grade Level, and Masters Grade Level on the STAAR tests.
      • The domain score for districts and high schools also include the percentage of annual graduates showing college, career, and military readiness (CCMR) and the best of four-, five-, or six-year graduation rates. The three components are weighted 40%-40%-20%, respectively.
    • School Progress Domain
      • Part A:  Academic Growth - credit is awarded for students who improve or maintain their performance level year over year in reading and math as measured by STAAR.
      • Part B:  Relative Performance - credit is awarded based on performance relative to districts and campuses with similar percentages of students on the free or reduced lunch program.
      • The better score of Part A or Part B is used for this domain score. 
    • Closing the Gaps Domain
      • Four components (Grade Level Performance, Academic Growth, English Language Proficiency, and Student Achievement) are measured for the All Students group and up to thirteen additional disaggregated student groups.
      • Credit is awarded based on performance of each student group against annual targets set for ELA/reading and math.
      • The domain score is a weighted combination of the four components based on district and campus type.

    The overall rating score is 70% of the better of either the Student Achievement domain score or School Progress domain score plus 30% of the Closing the Gap domain score.

    In addition to the ratings, campuses that have a rating of Met Standard are eligible for up to seven Distinction Designations. Distinction Designations compare campus performance to the performance of forty similar campuses - if campus performance is at the same level as the top 10 campuses in their comparison group, then the campus earns a distinction. Four new Distinction Designations were added in 2014 bringing the total number to seven.

    1. Academic Achievement in Reading/English Language Arts (ELAR) — The campus ranked in the top quartile (top 25%) in relation to its campus comparison group on 50% or more (elementary/intermediate/junior high schools) or 33% or more (high schools) of their eligible measures in reading/ELA.
    2. Academic Achievement in Mathematics — The campus ranked in the top quartile (top 25%) in relation to its campus comparison group on 50% or more (elementary/intermediate/junior high schools) or 33% or more (high schools) of their eligible measures in mathematics.
    3. Academic Achievement in Science — The campus ranked in the top quartile (top 25%) in relation to its campus comparison group on 50% or more (elementary/intermediate/junior high schools) or 33% or more (high schools) of their eligible measures in science.
    4. Academic Achievement in Social Studies - The campus ranked in the top quartile (top 25%) in relation to its campus comparison group on 50% or more (elementary/intermediate/junior high schools) or 33% or more (high schools) of their eligible measures in social studies.
    5. Top 25%:  Comparative Academic Growth — The campus ranked in the top quartile (top 25%) of performance on Student Progress in relation to its campus comparison group.
    6. Top 25%:  Comparative Closing the Gaps — The campus ranked in the top quartile (top 25%) of performance on Closing the Gaps in relation to its campus comparison group.
    7. Postsecondary Readiness — The campus (elementary/intermediate/junior high schools) ranked in the top quartile (top 25%) in relation to its campus comparison group on the number of students meeting the final recommended passing standard on two or more of the STAAR tests taken. The high school campus ranked in the top quartile (top 25%) on 33% or more (high schools) of their eligible postsecondary measures. These indicators include: students meeting the final recommended passing standard on two or more of the STAAR tests taken, four-year longitudinal graduation rate, four-year longitudinal RHSP/DAP rate, college-ready graduates, advanced/dual enrollment course completion rate, SAT/ACT participation, SAT/ACT performance, and AP/IB examination performance on any subject. This is the only Distinction Designation that districts are eligible to earn by having at least 70% of its campus-level postsecondary indicators in the top quartile (top 25%) in their respective campus comparison groups.
