New Texas Law Inspires Ratings by Campus

Texas Education Code Section 39.0545, as added by House Bill 5 of the 83rd Texas Legislature, requires all districts to evaluate the district’s performance and the performance of each campus in community and student engagement.  All school districts are required to assign a performance rating of Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, or Unacceptable to the district and each campus for overall performance in the following categories:

  • Fine Arts
  • Wellness and Physical Education
  • Community and Parental Involvement
  • The 21st Century Workforce Development Program
  • The Second Language Acquisition Program
  • The Digital Learning Environment
  • Dropout Prevention Strategies
  • Educational Programs for Gifted and Talented Students
  • Compliance with Statutory Reporting and Policy Requirements


A local committee established criteria used to determine the performance rating and compliance status for the district and all campuses.  At each campus, a local committee assigned the ratings for the campus and maintains the documents that support the ratings.   A district committee determined the ratings for the district as a whole and maintains the documents that support the ratings. 

The chart below lists the ratings for each of the nine areas.

The process used to determine the ratings enables the district and each campus to seek ways to improve in these nine areas.  Over time, the criteria for each area may be changed as improvements are made so that we will continue to develop each area and better serve our students, parents, and community.
