A-F Accountability Resources

A-F Accountability Resources

The 85th Legislature passed HB 22, changing the Texas school accountability system so that every campus and district receives ratings from A-F through a Domain system. The law requires schools and districts to be issued grades based on three different areas of performance or “domains,” and those three grades must be combined into a single overall rating.

The ratings will be issued for districts for the first time in August 2018. Campuses will only receive a "Met Standard" or "Improvement Required" rating this year based upon Domain performances. They will then receive A-F ratings in August 2019.
