Academic Preparation & Support

This section contains links to information related to academic factors while a student is enrolled in school. These include things like records retention, at risk indicators, credits, diploma plans and PGPs.

  • Each school district must report the academic achievement record (AAR) of students who have completed a minimum, recommended, advanced (distinguished), or foundation high school program. The transcript forms must include the required standard content for the AAR. The words “academic achievement record” and “transcript” are interchangeable. The form must serve as the academic record for each student and must be maintained permanently by the district.  

    Note: The AAR standards have not been updated by TEA since 2012

      • The Academic Achievement Record (AAR) is the record of a student's  academic achievement for their diploma program. This is also known as a transcript. There are specific guidelines for the minimum which needs to be recorded on the AAR.  Transcripts may be issued as official or unofficial depending upon the request circumstances. 
      • The AAR is a record to colleges of what a student has taken in high school as well as their GPA and testing history. Colleges request official copies directly from a school district and are responsible for obtaining authority to do so. 
      • Academic records for students in grades PreK – 8 (a.k.a. cumulative records) are to be kept for 5 years from the date of withdrawal. Academic records for students in 9-12 are to be kept permanently. There are various rules on specific records.
        1. What is the record keeping system for my district? When will I receive training? 
        2. What method is used for electronic record keeping and paper based record keeping? 
        3. What format does my district use for the AAR? 
        4. Who handles the procedure for transcripts? What is my role?
