2021 Accountability Development Materials

Each year, the Texas Education Agency convenes two advisory groups to develop key provisions of the state academic accountability system. These groups were instrumental in the establishment of the current accountability system and are central to its continued development and implementation.

The Accountability Technical Advisory Committee (ATAC), comprised of representatives from school districts and regional education service centers (ESCs), makes recommendations for major technical issues. The Accountability Policy Advisory Committee (APAC), comprised of representatives from legislative offices, school districts, and the business community, identifies issues critical to the accountability system and makes recommendations for major policy issues. The committees’ recommendations are sent to the commissioner of education who makes the final decisions on the accountability system.

This page contains links to the materials that each committee uses as it develops its recommendations for the accountability system. 

All links are PDF downloads unless otherwise stated.
