The State and Local Educational Agency (LEA) Federal Report Cards are available.
For some districts and campuses, small data cells are masked in order to protect student confidentiality. When this is the case, the reports may display an asterisk (*) or a percentage preceded by a less than or greater than symbol (<1%).
LEAs may save the PDF files locally for posting on LEA/campus websites.

Dissemination of the Federal Report Card
Each LEA that receives Title I, Part A funding is responsible for disseminating the state, LEA and campus-level report cards to 1) all LEA campuses, 2) parents of all enrolled students, and 3) the general public via widely available public means such as posting on the Internet, distribution to the media, or distribution through public agencies.
At a minimum, the LEA must—
- Post direct links to the State, LEA, and campus report cards on its web site
- Make hard copies available to parents on request
- Make hard copies available for viewing in public locations, and
- Notify parents of all students about the availability of the report cards and the options for obtaining them.
A sample parent notification letter that LEAs may customize as needed is available below. TEA strongly encourages LEAs to translate the sample letter in a language and format that all parents can understand.
