2018 Federal Report Cards

Federal Report Cards for the state, district, and campuses are available on the Texas Education Agency’s (TEA) website.

Each LEA that receives Title I, Part A funding is responsible for disseminating the State, LEA and campus-level report cards to all LEA campuses and parents of all enrolled students and making the information widely available through public means such as posting on the Internet, distribution to the media, or distribution through public agencies.

At a minimum, the LEA must —

The TAPR combines details of district and campus academic performance with financial reports and information about staff, programs, and demographics. Prior to the 2012–13 school year, TAPR was known as the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) reports.

Community and Student Engagement Reports

House Bill 5 of the 83rd Texas Legislative Session included a local evaluation requirement that is referred to as Community and Student Engagement. The statute requires each district to evaluate and designate a performance rating for the district and each of its campuses in the district based on criteria set by a local committee (TEC 39.0545). The law requires that each district and each campus be assigned a rating of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable. The district and campus performance ratings must be reported annually to TEA through PEIMS, and made publicly available by August 8 of each year beginning with the 2013–14 school year.

The statute provides nine factors for which the district and each campus must be evaluated:

Fine arts, wellness and physical education, community and parental involvement, 21st century workforce development program, 2nd language acquisition program, digital learning environment, dropout prevention strategies, educational programs for GT students, and compliance with statutory reporting and policy requirements.
