Accountability ratings

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

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.
