Accountability ratings

Texas assigns ratings to districts and campuses that designate their performance in relation to the state's accountability system.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the state waived accountability ratings for the 2019-2020 school year. All Texas public school districts and campuses received the label “Not Rated: Declared State of Disaster.” Our schools explorer shows the accountability ratings from the 2018-2019 school year.
