Campus Accountability Ratings
On August 12, 2016, TEA's Division of Performance Reporting via the accountability application within the Texas Education Agency Secure Environment (TEASE) provided state accountability data to districts, campuses, and charter schools, and on August 15, 2016, preliminary state accountability data and ratings were released publicly.
Distinction designations are awarded in recognition of outstanding achievement in specific areas. Campus distinctions are based on indicators of student performance in comparison to forty similar campuses. Only campuses and districts that receive a Met Standard rating are eligible for distinction designations. Alternative education campuses are not eligible for distinction designations.
State Accountability System Safeguards
The state accountability system includes the performance index framework and system safeguard measures, which are explained in detail in the 2016 Accountability Manual. The purpose of the system safeguard report is to ensure that substandard performance in one or more areas or by one or more student groups is not disguised by higher performance in other areas or by other student groups. Engagement in the Texas Accountability Intervention System (TAIS) is required if a campus or district does not meet the safeguard target.
