Accountability
 

School districts in Texas are evaluated under the state's accountability system, which is administered by the Texas Education Agency. In addition to the state accountability system, districts are also evaluated under a federal accountability system, commonly known as Every Student Succeeds Act, and starting in 2014 are evaluated under a local accountability system, the Community and Student Engagement Accountability System (CSE).

State Accountability

The Texas accountability system has changed over time, but has historically relied upon the student results on specific state assessments to determine a rating for each district and school. The state assessment used to evaluate students has also changed over time, from the TAAS test to the TAKS test to the current STAAR test.

Initial district and school ratings under the STAAR-based Texas accountability system have been posted. Under the current accountability system the district and campuses may receive a rating of Met Standard, Improvement Required, or Not Rated. Richardson ISD received a rating of Met Standard. In addition, 53 of 54 campuses in RISD received a rating of Met Standard. The accountability system contains four performance indexes each with a category of Met Standard or Did Not Meet Standard. Campuses that receive a Met Standard rating are eligible for Academic Distinction Designations. In RISD 43 campuses earned at least one distinction with four campuses earning all eligible distinctions.

Accountability Ratings Summary 2017 list the ratings and index scores for the district and each campus as released by TEA on August 15th. Overview of Performance Index Framework (one page) gives a visual overview of the performance indices for 2017.

Local Accountability - CSE
In addition to accountability results based on student assessment, beginning in 2013-2014, every Texas school district is required to evaluate each campus and the district as a whole on nine factors and assign ratings of Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, or Unacceptable. These factors and ratings comprise the Community and Student Engagement Accountability System (CSE).

These ratings, which are based on individual districts' input, allow each district and campus to showcase the many opportunities they provide to students, families, and the community in areas other than standardized testing and provide more local control.

For questions about a school's Community and Student Engagement accountability rating, please contact the campus principal.


Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR)
The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), formerly known as the AEIS (Academic Excellence Indicator System) reports, pull together a wide range of information annually on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas. The reports also provide extensive information on staff, programs, and demographics for each school and district.

Public Education Grant (PEG) Program
In 1995, the Texas Legislature created the Public Education Grant (PEG) program (TEC §§29.201 - 29.205). The PEG program permits parents whose children attend schools on the PEG list to request that their children transfer to schools in other districts. A list of PEG-designated schools is provided to districts annually. By February 1, districts must notify each parent of a student in the district assigned to attend a school on the PEG list. Parents may then request a transfer for the following school year.

Federal Accountability

Richardson Independent School District is sharing this information about the district and your child’s campus with you as part of its obligations under the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB).

Federal Report Cards for the state, the district, and each of the district’s campuses are now available on the Texas Education Agency’s website.

Federal Report Card Letter to Parent/Guardian (English)

Federal Report Card Letter to Parent/Guardian (Spanish)

Information on these report cards includes:
Part I: Percent Tested and Student Achievement by Proficiency Level – Provides the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) performance results and participation for each subject area and grade level tested.

Participation reports also include reports of the participation of Children with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) by assessment type.

Part II: Student Achievement and State Academic Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) – Provides the AMO outcomes and data table of STAAR performance results for each subject area tested in the accountability subset. This section also includes participation rates on STAAR for reading/English and mathematics, use of alternative assessments, plus four-year and five-year graduation rates.

Part III: Priority and Focus Schools– Priority schools are the lowest 5% of Title I served campuses based on performance in reading and mathematics and graduation rates. Focus schools are 10% of Title I served campuses, not already identified as priority schools, that have the widest gaps between student group performance and safeguard targets.

Part IV: Teacher Quality Data – Provides information on teacher quality in three parts.
  • Part A – Percent of Teachers by Highest Degree Held – Professional qualifications of all public elementary and secondary teachers in the Texas.
  • Part B and C – Teachers with Emergency/Provisional Credentials, Highly Qualified (HQ) Teachers Low Poverty/Low Poverty Summary Reports – Percentage of all public elementary and secondary school teachers teaching with emergency or provisional credentials, and the percentage of classes in the state not taught by highly qualified teachers disaggregated by high-poverty compared to low-poverty schools.

Part V: Graduates Enrolled in Texas Institution of Higher Education (IHE) – Provides the percentage of students who enroll and begin instruction at an institution of higher education in Texas during the school year (fall or spring semester) following high school graduation.

TAKS-Based Accountability Ratings
Until 2011, the State of Texas used a different accountability system to rate schools, based on the TAKS test that is no longer administered to students. That rating system offered each school four possible ratings, Exemplary, Recognized, , Academically Acceptable and Academically Unacceptable. Please click here to see RISD campus ratings under this previous accountability system.
