While the majority of accountability ratings are calculated based on the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) test, factors such as graduation rates, SAT/ACT scores and college prep course completion are also taken into consideration.

Overall grades for campuses are calculated based on the school’s performance in three domains: Student Achievement, School Progress and Closing the Gaps, according to the TEA.

Of the 1,189 multischool districts and charter operators rated statewide, 301 earned an overall “A,” 677 earned an overall “B,” 154 earned an overall “C,” 43 earned an overall “D” and 14 earned an overall “F.”

“Performance continues to improve in Texas schools because of the tireless effort of Texas teachers, administrators and staff. I am particularly proud of the educators at the 296 high-poverty schools that achieved an A rating this year,” Education Commissioner Mike Morath said in a press release.
