West ISD Federal and State Accountability Reports

State Accountability Ratings

The state of Texas via the Texas Education Agency (TEA) provides annual academic accountability ratings to its public school districts and schools. Beginning this year, all multi-campus school districts and charters received an accountability rating based on an A–F scale. The West Independent School District (WISD) received a letter grade of "B". Districts received a grade or rating based on performance in three areas:

  • Student Achievement measures what students know and can do by the end of the year.  It includes results from state assessments across all subjects for all students, on both general and alternate assessments, College, Career, and Military Readiness (CCMR) indicators, like AP and ACT results, and graduation rates.
  • School Progress measures how much better students are doing on the STAAR test this year versus last year, and how much better students are doing academically relative to schools with similar percentages of economically disadvantaged students.
  • Closing the Gaps looks at performance among student groups, including various racial/ethnic groups, socioeconomic backgrounds and other factors.


Seventy percent of the accountability rating is based on the better of Student Achievement or Student Progress (whichever is better is the only performance measure counted in the calculations). The remaining 30 percent is based on performance in the Closing the Gaps area. Here is the link to the state's A-F Letter Grade Accountability website: A-F Resources.

Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR)

The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) pull together a wide range of information annually on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas. The reports provide extensive information on staff, programs, and demographics for each school and district.
 
 
 
During the Wednesday, November 8, 2017, Regular Board of Trustees Meeting, the District Leadership Team held a Public Hearing on the 2016-2017 TAPR information via the West ISD Annual Report presentation. The PowerPoint Presentation is saved at the bottom of this web page. 
 

Texas School Report Card (SRC)

The School Report Card (SRC) combines accountability ratings, data from the Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), and financial information to give a broad view of campus performance. Available for each campus in Texas, the SRC is intended specifically to inform parents and guardians about a school’s individual characteristics and its academic performance.

Campus and District Improvement Plans

Campus Improvement Plans (CIP) and District Improvement Plans (DIP) are comprehensive plans that include all of the activities of an LEA/campus.
