Get Connected and Stay Connected!

The State Accountability System is designed to provide a broad and detailed analysis of campus and district performance. School leaders face the challenge of comprehending and making sense of the accountability system – and connecting it to effective instructional systems, practices and processes that support student learning.

The good news for 2016-17 is that 2016 Accountability will be fairly similar to 2015 Accountability.

accountabilityconnect2016 will help districts prepare for the new A-F ratings system – including TEA’s January 1, 2017 report showing the ratings each district/campus would have received in August 2016 if the A-F ratings system had been in place for 2015-16.

  • Understand
    • the 2016 Accountability System AND
    • the new A-F ratings system (as it gets developed)

  • Prepare and file appeals of ratings, if applicable
  • Connect any required accountability intervention processes with effective campus and district planning activities and systems
