What’s New in Performance Reporting

A–F Accountability

TEA Login (TEAL) Accountability Application

On August 7, the 2019 accountability domain tables without rating labels will be available to districts through the TEAL Accountability application. A week later, Wednesday, August 14, district accountability summary tables with 2019 rating labels and distinction designation reports will also be available through TEAL. When this occurs, the 2018 accountability reports and student listings for all campuses and districts will be replaced with links to 2019 accountability reports. Once removed, the data contained in each 2018 report and student listing will be unavailable. Please ensure that your district downloads and maintains a copy of the 2018 reports for your records.

These accountability reports consist of accountability summaries, data tables for each domain, and distinction designation reports for 2018 accountability. Accountability student listings include data that was used to calculate the STAAR performance; College, Career, and Military Readiness (CCMR); Academic Growth; and English Language Proficiency components for 2018 accountability.
