Texas leads the nation in the number of public policies designed to improve college, career, and military readiness (known around here as CCMR). The state’s emphasis on postsecondary readiness is also reflected in its accountability system, which includes a strong focus on CCMR indicators.
In 2019, the state legislature passed House Bill 3, the school finance bill. Among other items, the bill allocates funding to improve college, career, and military readiness (CCMR) for all students. This funding is known as the CCMR outcomes bonus.
Texas’ A–F accountability system is built on three separate domains: Student Achievement, School Progress, and Closing the Gaps. Each domain receives a score, which is factored into a campus and district’s overall accountability grade.
