Local Accountability Systems

House Bill (HB) 22 (85th Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2017) established Local Accountability Systems (LAS) which allow districts and charter schools to develop plans to locally evaluate their campuses. Once a plan receives approval from the agency, districts and charter schools may use locally developed domains and indicators together with the three state-mandated domains to assign overall A–F ratings for each campus.

The integration of Local Accountability Systems will come in stages. The agency will oversee a small-scale pilot program for the 2017–18 academic year. This pilot program will inform the full roll out of the local accountability system option for the 2018–19 academic year.

The Texas Education Agency invited districts to express interest in participating in the LAS pilot by submitting a Notification of Interest form. The deadline for submitting a Notification of Interest form has passed.
