Accountability Dashboards Publically Available
The Texas School Accountability Dashboard (Texas Education Code §39.309), required by House Bill 5 (83rd Legislature, 2013), is now available at http://www.texasschoolaccountabilitydashboard.org.
The dashboard, designed to provide the public with easily accessible accountability information, includes the four indexes that are the basis for the state’s accountability system and gives a summary of state, district, and school performance. The dashboard makes it possible to find clear and concise accountability information and demographics for an individual school, an entire school district, or the state as a whole and also allows users to compare performance between districts or schools. Note that districts are not statutorily required to disseminate the dashboard reports to their board of trustees or local communities but may choose to provide a link to the reports from their local website.
