What’s New in Performance Reporting

A–F Accountability

Confidential Accountability Data Tables and Student Listings

The 2019 accountability data tables and student listings, which provide the unmasked data used to determine a campus or district’s accountability rating, are now available for districts in the Texas Education Agency Login (TEAL) Accountability application. Please note that the data in these reports are confidential.


Accountability data tables and student listings are available for all campuses and districts that will receive an accountability rating in 2019, including registered alternative education campuses and charter schools that are evaluated under alternative education accountability provisions. The data tables and student listings contain the data used to calculate each of the three domain scores.


The data tables are currently only available in HTML. Performance Reporting is in the process of creating batch PDFs for release in TEAL by 4 p.m. on Friday, August 9. A follow up notification will be distributed when PDFs are available for download. 

What’s Next

On August 14, the 2019 accountability ratings will be available to districts through the TEAL Accountability application. District and campus accountability and distinction designation reports will also be available through TEAL at this time. The following day, Thursday, August 15, all 2019 accountability reports will be released on the agency’s public website. The public accountability reports and data tables will be masked to protect student confidentiality.

This Week’s FAQ

On our Closing the Gaps report, the Pacific Islander student group had a 91.0 percent four-year federal graduation rate for 2019 and the report reflects a No for meeting the target. How can this be?

As approved by the U.S. Department of Education, the state ESSA plan requires student groups who meet or exceed the four-year federal graduation target to improve that rate in the following year. As graduation rates are rounded to one decimal place, a student group must exceed their prior year rate by one-tenth of a percentage point. For example, if the Pacific Islander group achieved a 91.0 percent four-year federal graduation rate in 2018, they would have to achieve at least a 91.1 percent four-year federal graduation rate in 2019 to meet the target. This requirement can be found on page 36 of Chapter 4 of the 2019 Accountability Manual.
