Federal Report Cards - The U.S. Department of Education requires each state to publish an annual report card with specific district- and campus-level data. Every district that receives Title I, Part A funding is responsible for distributing the state, district, and campus-level report cards to each of its campuses, the parents of all enrolled students, and the general public.

The Federal Report card contains student achievement results in Reading and Math in addition to other federally required information. Visit the TEA website for the latest reports.

Accountability Reports - The new rating system, passed by state legislature in 2015, requires the TEA to give each public school and each district an A through F (A-F) letter grade, similar to a child’s report card. Visit the TEA website for the latest reports.

Title I – Title I is a federally funded program designed to address the academic needs of students and to assist them in meeting the state's standards in the areas of reading, writing, science and mathematics. Title I schools are determined by the percentage of students at each school who are eligible for free or reduced lunch.

Number and names of Title I schools identified as in need of improvement, including the stage of improvement and safeguards missed for any schools identified for improvement.
