“Snapshot.” This word means so much more than a carefully crafted Instagram photo with a wrinkle-reducing filter. On October 25, 2019, districts across Texas will hold their breath as data is extracted from PEIMS (Public Education Information Management Systems) that will ultimately determine their A–F accountability rating in the form of a snapshot showing “everything as it is today."
Across the state, administrators are learning more about the intricacies of the A-F Accountability System and what it means for our students and schools. As Texas’ college and career readiness experts, we’re excited to bring you timely updates, such as what districts with excellent outcomes can do with their financial bonuses.
It’s back to school with an immediate dive into accountability ratings. While there have been several versions of accountability ratings through TEA in the last fifteen years, this is the first year that individual campuses and districts have received an A–F score. We want to support your campus and district goals when it comes to the new scoring standard so that you can continue to implement quality instructional strategies.
