The 85th Texas Legislature passed
House Bill (HB) 22, establishing three domains for measuring the academic
performance of districts and campuses: Student Achievement, School Progress,
and Closing the Gaps. Districts will receive a rating of A, B, C, D, or F for
overall performance, as well as for performance in each domain, beginning in
August 2018. Campuses will receive A–F ratings beginning in August 2019.
bill also allows districts and charters to develop plans to locally rate their
campuses. Once a plan receives approval from the agency, districts and charters
may use the locally developed domains and indicators along with the three state
domains to assign A–F ratings for each campus. Finally, HB 22 requires a
legislative report, due January 1, 2019, showing the overall and domain
performance ratings each campus would have received for the 2017–18 school year
had the campus A–F ratings been in place.
