The reports are required by the Texas Legislature and prepared by the Texas Education Agency. It is to be made available to the parent or guardian of every child enrolled in a Texas public school. The report provides information concerning student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®), as well as information on student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures. The information contained in the School Report Card is required by state law and is briefly described in School Report Card Definitions (English) and School Report Card Definitions (Spanish).
The report for your child's school may or may not have all the information described because the information presented depends on whether the school is an elementary, middle, or high school. State law requires that the School Report Card display information about the state, the district, and the school. Where possible, the information must be reported by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status of the students and must include at least two years of results.
For those who would like greater detail about the information in the SRC, the 2018–19 Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR) Glossary is a useful resource. It contains definitions and data sources for all of the information included in the SRC; the data in the SRC is a subset of data published in the TAPR.
