TAPR System Release Notes
The Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR) report is available in two forms:
- An online TAPR system that is more comprehensive and dynamic than in previous years.
- A shortened PDF version which includes major data points that allow districts to fulfill their public notification requirements.
The online TAPR system is updated with district and campus academic performance, financial reports, and staff, program, and student demographic data as soon as it is becomes available. The following is a listing of data releases for the online TAPR system. The most recent updates appear first.
Due to the cancellation of the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) on March 16, 2020, some sections of the 2019–20 TAPR were not able to be updated and instead contain 2018 and 2019 data. While the PDF version of the TAPR includes only major data points and is designed to allow districts to fulfill their public notification requirements, the TAPR system provides additional data to help inform stakeholders.
The PDF version of the TAPR that includes only major data points to allow districts to fulfill their public notification requirements will be available in the TEA Login (TEAL) accountability application and on the TAPR website in December. The TAPR data downloads and a comprehensive glossary will accompany the TAPR PDF release in December.
