District Performance Ratings

The 83rd Legislature (2013) implemented Sec. 39.0545 which evaluates each district campus' performance in community and student engagement and compliance. Specifically, as stated in the legislation: (a) Each school district shall evaluate the district's performance and the performance of each campus in the district in community and student engagement and in compliance as provided by this section and assign the district and each campus a performance rating of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable for both overall performance and each individual evaluation factor listed under Subsection (b). Not later than August 8 of each year, the district shall report each performance rating to the agency and make the performance ratings publicly available as provided by commissioner rule.

School Report Card (SRC)

The Texas Education Agency publishes a School Report Card (SRC) for every campus in the district. Schools are required to provide a copy of their SRC to the parent/guardian of each student upon request.  A call out has been made to every students home making parents aware of the attached document and its location on our website.
