Accountability ratings

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

For the 2021-2022 school year, the state gave only A - C ratings. All Texas public school districts and campuses that would have received a D or F rating instead received the label “Not Rated: SB 1365.” In addition, not all schools and districts are rated because some are alternative education programs and treatment facilities.
