District RatingsThe Texas Education Agency (TEA) released preliminary school ratings for 2013 on August 8, 2013. The 2013 ratings are based on a revised system that uses various indicators to provide greater detail on the performance of a district or charter and each individual campus throughout the state. Ratings released in 2013 mark the first implementation of a newly redesigned state accountability system.
In addition to the ratings, campuses that have a rating of Met Standard are eligible for up to three Distinction Designations. Distinction Designations compare campus performance to the performance of forty similar campuses - if campus performance is at the same level as the top 10 campuses in their comparison group, then the campus earns a distinction. The three Distinction Designations available in 2013 are:
- Top 25% Student Progress — The campus achieved the top quartile (top 25%) of performance on Index 2: Student Progressin relation to its campus comparison group
- Academic Achievement in Reading/English Language Arts (ELAR) — The campus achieved the top quartile (top 25%) in relation to its campus comparison group on 50% or more (elementary/middle schools) or 33% or more (high schools) of their eligible measuresin reading/ELA.
- Academic Achievement in Mathematics — The campus achieved the top quartile (top 25%) in relation to its campus comparison group on 50% or more (elementary/middle schools) or 33% or more (high schools) of their eligible measures in mathematics.
The System Safeguards allow for the separation of performance results into component parts to ensure that each student group is performing at a minimum level. There are up to 99 separate System Safeguard indicators for campuses. Campuses and districts that miss one or more of the System Safeguards for which they are accountable are subject to Intervention Activities designed on a continuous improvement model. Intervention Activities are reported through a state monitoring program.
