For 2013 and beyond, Texas adapted a new accountability framework of four performance indexes. This framework includes a broad set of measures that provide a comprehensive evaluation of the campus or district. The new accountability framework is reported in a new report called the Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR) and replaced the previous performance reports know as the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) Reports. AEIS reports were published from 1990-91 to 2011-12. No state accountability ratings were assigned in 2012.
Texas Academic Performance Reports
The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) pull together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas every year. Performance is shown disaggregated by student groups, including ethnicity and low income status. The reports also provide extensive information on school and district staff, programs, and student demographics.
Information explaining district's accreditation status, definitions and explanations of each accreditation can be found on the Texas Education Agency website (click on link to be re-directed to web page). Each year a new Glossary will be produced for the TAPR, specific to that year. In researching the reports, it is important to refer to the glossary for the year in question. Significant changes in methodology are also addressed in the Frequently Asked Questions page.

The financial section of these reports is now created by the Division of School Finance at TEA. When viewing the TAPR, you will see a link to PEIMS Financial Standard Reports/2011-2012 Financial Actual Report at the end of the report. This will link directly to the finance information for that school or district.

District Performance Ratings
The 83rd Legislature (2013) implemented Sec. 39.0545 which evaluates each district campus' performance in community and student engagement and compliance. Specifically, as stated in the legislation: (a) Each school district shall evaluate the district's performance and the performance of each campus in the district in community and student engagement and in compliance as provided by this section and assign the district and each campus a performance rating of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable for both overall performance and each individual evaluation factor listed under Subsection (b). Not later than August 8 of each year, the district shall report each performance rating to the agency and make the performance ratings publicly available as provided by commissioner rule.
EPISD's performance ratings can viewed by clicking here.
School Report Card (SRC)
The Texas Education Agency publishes a School Report Card (SRC) for every campus in the district. The report provides a small subset of the information available in the TAPR reports. Schools are required to provide a copy of their SRC to the parent/guardian of each student.

The Performance-Based Monitoring Analysis System (PBMAS)
The PBMAS is a district-level, data-driven monitoring system developed and implemented annually by Performance-Based Monitoring (PBM) staff in coordination with other Texas Education Agency (TEA) divisions and departments. The TEA uses PBMAS as one part of its annual evaluation of school districts’ performance and program effectiveness.

Beginning with 2013, TEA replaced the Gold Performance Acknowledgements used to recognize districts and campuses for high performance on indicators other than those used to determine accountability ratings. The Distinction designations recognize outstanding academic achievement in reading/English language arts and mathematics. Currently campuses that receive a rating of Met Standard are eligible for seven distinction designations: Academic Achievement in ELA/Reading, Academic Achievement in Mathematics, Academic Achievement in Science, Academic Achievement in Social Studies, Top 25% Student Progress, Top 25% Closing Performance Gaps, and Postsecondary Readiness.
