School districts receive accountability ratings from the federal government and from the state of Texas.
FEDERAL ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEM
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), requires each State education agency to prepare and publish an annual report card with state, district, and campus level data. For more information and for MISD Federal Report carts, visit the MISD Federal Report Card website.
TEXAS ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEM
The state accountability system includes the Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR) and report cards for the school district and each campus. These state provided school and district reports are known as the A-F Accountability System.

TEXAS SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY RATINGS
What is the A-F Accountability System?
Established by House Bill 22 during the 85th Texas Legislature, the A–F accountability system provides educators, parents, and communities with a transparent view of the academic performance of Texas public schools based on three domains: Student Achievement, School Progress, and Closing the Gaps.
On what factors are the ratings based?
The ratings are based on performance on state standardized tests; graduation rates; and college, career, and military readiness outcomes. The ratings examine student achievement, school progress, and whether districts and campuses are closing achievement gaps among various student groups. The 2022 Academic Accountability System Overview provides a one-page summary of the accountability system. You can visit TXschools.gov to access accountability information for districts across the state of Texas. Alternatively, the following video provides a quick overview of the system. For more information about the 2022 ratings visit the TEA 2022 Academic Accountability website.
