Accountability ratings

Texas assigns ratings to districts and campuses that designate their performance in relation to the state's accountability system. In 2017-18, Texas gave school districts with more than one campus a letter grade from A to F. The state did not give grades to campuses and instead gave them ratings based on the previous system, such as "met standard" or "improvement required." Some districts did not receive ratings for a variety of reasons, including being impacted by Hurricane Harvey, being annexed by another district, or having compromised data.
