TEA Accountability Score Updates: COVID-19

Posted by Rose Frezza, Texas OnCourse on Apr 15, 2020 4:48:00 PM

You’ve likely seen the changes to the August 2020 accountability ratings, but in case you missed it, formal ratings for all Texas school districts will be labeled “not-rated” due to the disruption caused by the COVID-19 emergency. College, career, and military readiness data will be reported only on TEA reports such as Texas Academic Performance Reports. It will not be used in ratings calculations for the 2019-2020 school year.

If you still have questions such as…

  1. Will any sanctions be carried out in 2020–2021 for districts or campuses who were designated in need of improvement 2019–2020? What about comprehensive campuses?
  2. If a campus believes they would have gotten out of F status, can they use other data, such as a benchmark STAAR test, to provide evidence to change their rating?
  3. Will provisions be made to prevent loss of points in next year's ratings if CCMR points are affected by test cancellations?

...review TEA’s updated accountability guidelines. Those with additional questions can email TEA directly. To stay up-to-date on Texas education news for school administrators, register for our monthly newsletter.
