The state accountability system assigns one of three academic ratings to each district and
campus: Met Standard, Met Alternative Standard, or Improvement Required. These ratings
are based on a framework of four indexes that combine a range of indicators into a
comprehensive measure of performance.
The performance index framework combines results from STAAR assessments, graduation
rates, rates of students completing the various graduation plans, and other indicators.
Campuses that receive an accountability rating of Met Standard are eligible to earn
distinction designations. Distinction designations are available for achievement in several

campuses of similar type, size, grade span, and student demographics. The distinction
designation indicators are separate from those used to evaluate accountability ratings.
