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 the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
.

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. During the 85th Texas legislative session, House Bill (HB) 22 was passed establishing three domains for measuring the academic performance of districts and campuses: Student Achievement, School Progress, and Closing the Gaps. Under this accountability system, 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 receive A–F ratings beginning in August 2019, until then, campuses will be rated  Met StandardImprovement Required, or Not Rated for overall performance, as well as for performance in each domain.  For additional resources from the Texas Education Agency regarding the new state accountability system click here.

Initial district and school ratings under the three domain Texas accountability system have been posted. Richardson ISD received an overall rating of B. In addition, 50 of 52 campuses in RISD received overall ratings of Met Standard. Campuses that receive a Met Standard rating are eligible for Academic Distinction Designations. In RISD 42 campuses earned at least one distinction with eight campuses earning all eligible distinctions.

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.

View Texas Academic Performance Reports for individual RISD schools as well as the district as a whole on the Texas Education Agency (TEA) website

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.

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.

  • (II) The long-term goals and measurements of interim progress for all students and for each of the subgroups of students
  • (III) The indicators used to meaningfully differentiate all public schools in the State
  • (IV) The State’s system for meaningfully differentiating all public schools in the State, including:
    • (aa) The specific weight of the indicators in such differentiation
    • (bb) The methodology by which the State differentiates all such schools

  • (V) The number and names of all public schools in the State identified by the State for comprehensive support and improvement or implementing targeted support and improvement plans
  • (VI) The exit criteria established by the State, including the length of years established

Part (ii): Student Achievement by Proficiency Level  
This section provides information on student achievement on the STAAR (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness) performance for mathematics, ELA/reading, and science by grade level and proficiency level for the 2017–18 school year. These results include all students tested, regardless of whether they were in the accountability subset.

Part (iii)(I): Academic Growth  
This section provides information on students’ academic growth for mathematics and ELA/reading for public elementary schools and secondary schools which don’t have a graduation rate. These results include all students tested, regardless of whether they were in the accountability subset.

Part (iii)(II): Graduation Rate  
This section provides information on high school graduation rates.

Part (iv): English Language Proficiency  
This section provides information on the number and percentage of English learners achieving English language proficiency.

Part (v): School Quality or Student Success (SQSS)  
This section provides information on the other indicator of school quality or student success, which is college, career and military readiness (CCMR) for high schools and average performance rate of the three STAAR performance levels of all students, regardless of whether they were in the accountability subset, for elementary and secondary schools without a graduation rate.

Part (vi):  Goal Meeting Status  
This section provides information on the progress of all students and each student group toward meeting the long-term goals or interim objectives on STAAR academic performance, federal graduation rate, and English learners’ language proficiency.

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.
