Student Performance and Accountability
Performance and Accountability supports the mission of the district and schools by producing statistical reports regarding district wide and school-level performance on TAKS, Stanford, Aprenda, SAT/ACT, and PSAT. The bureau produces the HISD Accountability System, HISD Scholars Accountability System, and the Performance Indicators that set standards for the schools and district offices in alignment with the district's goals. The bureau provides projections of the TEA Accountability ratings and performance with regard to Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) dictated by the No Child Left Behind Act to schools and district administrators. The Performance Indicator Report which presents multiple measures of student performance is published for use by schools and administrators to communicate to the schools' communities' their effectiveness in addressing the educational needs of their students. Reports are distributed to schools, the administrative district offices, the Superintendent, and Board members, and guidance is provided in understanding, interpreting, and applying this information to improve instructional programs.
