The Testing and Accountability Coordinator provides leadership in all aspects of the state and federal accountability systems for the purpose of measuring student progress.
A- F Accountability
Accountability ratings are assigned to every district and campus in the Texas public education system each year. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) released the new accountability results regarding student performance in the 2017-2018 school year.
Parents are encouraged to visit TXschools.org to view online report cards designed to be useful tools to see how a school or district is doing in different areas. The report cards spotlight specific strengths, in addition to any challenges, so that we can work to assure the needs of all students are being met. Parents can search by district or school name and compare the district's or school's performance to others in their area.
Districts receive a letter grade or rating based on performance in three areas:
- Domain I: Student Achievement evaluates performance across all subjects for all students on the following measures: STAAR Assessments; College, Career, and Military Readiness (CCMR) indicators; and graduation rates.
- Domain II: School Progress measures district and campus outcomes in two areas:
- Academic Growth - the number of students who demonstrated at least one year of academic growth (or are on track) as measured by STAAR results; and
- Relative Performance - the achievement of all students relative to districts and/or campuses with similar economically disadvantaged percentages.
- Domain III: Closing the Gaps uses disaggregated data to demonstrate differentials among racial/ethnic groups, socioeconomic backgrounds, and other factors. The indicators included in this domain as well as the domain's construction, align the state accountability system with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

Federal Report Card
2017-2018 Federal Report Cards are now available
The U.S. Department of Education requires each state to publish an annual report card with specific district and campus-level data. Find the Federal Report Card for any campus or district.
School Report Card
The school report card (SRC) combines accountability ratings, data from the Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), and financial information to give a broad view of campus performance. Available for each campus in Texas, the SRC is intended to inform parents and guardians about a school's individual characteristics and its academic performance. Find the School Report Card for any campus through TEA.
In 2018, Texas schools could earn distinctions in seven areas:
- Student Progress
- Closing Performance Gaps
- English Language Arts/Reading
- Social Studies
- Post-Secondary Readiness
Distinction Designations can be found on TEA.
The Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR)
The TAPR report contains the current performance on the TAPR indicators for Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City ISD and each campus in the District. The most recent full report (for the 2017-2018 school year) is accessible in PDF format via the links below. Reports for the prior year are available at TEA Performance Reporting.
The Texas Education Agency awards an accreditation status to each public school district and charter school. The accreditation status is based on the academic accountability rating and financial ratings from the Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas. A district or charter must be accredited by the state to operate as a public school, and Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City ISD earned full accreditation status.
The accreditation system also examines performance in other areas such as data reporting, special program effectiveness, and compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements. Under the accreditation system, ratings of Accredited, Accredited-Warned, Accredited-Probation or Not Accredited-Revoked are issued. The status of a district or charter can be listed as pending if an investigation is underway. The TEA website has more information on the TEA Accreditation System.
Texas School Accountability Dashboard
The Texas School Accountability Dashboard makes it possible to find clear and concise accountability information and demographics for an individual school, a school district, or the state.
Texas Consolidated School Rating Report
The Texas Consolidated School Rating Report (TCSR) combines the accountability rating, distinction designations, Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) rating, and community and student engagement rating for each district and campus in Texas.
Texas Performance Reporting System
The Texas Performance Reporting System integrates state and federal reporting requirements. The most comprehensive state academic accountability report published by TEA, it combines information previously published by the state accountability reports, the Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), and the School Report Card and includes results for student groups not previously reported.
