The purpose of this notice is to inform you that the 2021 Annual Report of the Texas Education Agency (TEA) is now available on the agency’s website.



The 2021 Annual Report highlights the dedication of educators and the unwavering service of school systems throughout the state who have worked tirelessly to meet the needs of our students. From prioritizing in-person instruction to investing unprecedented levels of funding, Texas educators and policymakers shared a commitment to ensuring our state's nearly 5.5 million public school students received the necessary support to address declines in academic proficiency induced by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Additionally, the report chronicles the effective approaches and inspiring stories of districts meeting the needs of their students while also highlighting the strategic priorities of TEA.

With a vision to ensure every child is ready for success in college, a career, or the military, the 2021 Annual Report spotlights areas of achievement based on the agency’s strategic priorities:

  • Recruit, Support, and Retain Teachers and Principals;
  • Build a Foundation of Reading and Math;
  • Connect High School to Career and College; and
  • Improve Low Performing Schools. 

Please share this information with your board members, staff, community members, and local media as you see fit.
