Texas provides annual academic accountability ratings to its public school districts,
charters and schools. The ratings are based largely on performance on state standardized tests and graduation rates. The ratings examine student achievement, student progress, efforts to close the achievement gap and postsecondary readiness. A video available in English and Spanish provides a quick overview of the system. For more information, including district and campus comparisons, visit the Texas School Accountability Dashboard or view this one-page overview of the performance index framework.

* Due to the K-2 designation, Lorena Primary ratings and reports are often combined with Lorena Elementary or missing assessment data.
House Bill 5 Community & Student Engagement Ratings
In addition to state and federal accountability, the state legislature requires each campus and district to locally assign ratings in the following areas: fine arts, wellness and physical education, community and parental involvement, 21st Century Workforce Development programs, second language acquisition programs, digital learning environment, dropout prevention strategies, educational programs for gifted and talented students, and compliance with statutory reporting requirements. Local committees develop criteria
and self-evaluate each area based on those criteria. You can find more information about HB5 Community & Student Engagement Ratings here.
