Castleberry ISD Accountability and Performance Ratings

The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR)

The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) pull together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas every year. Performance is shown disaggregated by student groups, including ethnicity and low income status. The reports also provide extensive information on school and district staff, programs, and student demographics.

The TAPR Glossary describes each item on the report. It provides the methodology for calculating the values on the report and clearly states the source of the data. To view the 2013-14 TAPR Gossary, please click here.

Reports of Student Enrollment and Academic Performance

Texas statute (TEC §51.403) requires every district to include with its TAPR a report on student performance in postsecondary institutions during the first year enrolled after graduation from high school. The THECB posts this data on its website at: http://www.txhighereddata.org/Interactive/HSCollLinkFilters/HSGradAcademicPerformance.cfm

State Accountability

Texas provides annual academic accountability ratings to its public school districts, charters and school. The ratings are based largely on performance on state standardized tests and graduation rates. The ratings examine student achievement, student progress, efforts to close the achievement gap and postsecondary readiness. A video is available in English and Spanish provides a quick overview of the system.
