Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) {formally AEIS}


Texas annually rates its public schools and districts on the academic performance of their students through the Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), formerly known as the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS). The TAPR reports provide a great deal of performance information about every public school and district in the state. These reports also provide extensive profile information about staff, finances, demographics and programs.The Texas Education Agency provides the TAPR report every year. More information and the district and campus TAPR reports can be found on the TEA website. (*Note No STAAR results are available on the 2011-12 AEIS Reports)

VERY IMPORTANT ABOUT TRAVEL DURING A SCHOOL DAY!
