Texas Academic Performance Report 21-22
The Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR) for the 21-22 school year is now online. This report is required by the Texas Legislature and prepared by the Texas Education Agency. It is to be sent to the parent or guardian of every child enrolled in a Texas public school. The report provides information concerning student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®), as well as information on student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures.
In addition, you can use the links below to view your child's campus School Report Card and the campus TAPR report. The information contained in the School Report Card is required by state law and is briefly described in the “2021–22 School Report Card Definitions,” which can also be located at the link below. The report for our school may or may not have all the information described because the information presented depends on whether the school is an elementary, middle, or high school.
State law requires that the School Report Card display information about the state, the district, and the school. Where possible, the information must be reported by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status of the students and must include at least two years of results.
The School Report Cards can be found online at
The Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR) can be accessed online at https://rptsvr1.tea.texas.gov/perfreport/tapr/index
Please contact your campus principal if you have questions about the School Report Card. Thank you for your continued support.
Family and school collaboration results in positive outcomes for our students, families, and staff. Our Family and Student Engagement Committee worked this year on developing monthly topics to support and partner with families throughout the school year. Through our monthly topics from the district and campuses, it is our desire and hopes to have shared responsibility between families and schools to build stronger relationships with our students, parents, and staff.
February is diversity and inclusion month. Our commitment to families and students is to build mutual respect for all students entrusted in our care. We hope to provide resources and information to families to support the efforts in schools.
Raising a Nonjudgmental Child
By Julia Cook, Author & Boys Town Expert
Children are born without bias. As infants, they don’t care about race, gender, religion (or lack thereof), sexual orientation, or cultural identity. As they grow, any prejudice they exhibit regarding others is the result of learning via observation. That means if you wish to raise a nonjudgmental child, you must first take a look in the mirror as well as understand that the key to building relationships and raising a nonjudgmental child is through the development of trust and communication.
As a parent, you are your child’s first teacher, which is why it is crucial that you are a role model as your infant matures into a walking, talking toddler. These first three or four years of life are crucial to forming your child’s personality — including his or her views on the differences we humans naturally exhibit.
Your young child is more likely to be open and welcoming to others if you connect and associate with people who are different from you. This means exposing your child to diversity-rich environments and cultivating friendships with children of many different backgrounds.
Throughout your son or daughter’s childhood — and especially during those formative years — it is important to talk honestly and openly about the many wonderful differences that make everyone unique. Discussing these differences can make the unfamiliar less scary and threatening, which can help reduce prejudice.
Practicing empathy and compassion through role-playing is one way to help ensure that your child is open and welcoming to others. Start by having your child express concern for someone (perhaps you) if they’ve been injured or had some other misfortunes befall them. This is also a good opportunity to reinforce the Golden Rule: Treat others as you want them to treat you.
You should also look for teachable moments along the way. If you see someone who’s being mistreated because of their differences, explain to your child why this is wrong. If your child says something derogatory about another child because he or she has a physical impairment, explain what that impairment is and that he or she is not “weird” or “dumb” but simply “different,” and that different is okay.
Lastly, you should reward good behavior. Try to “catch your child being good,” and when he or she exhibits extraordinary tolerance or genuine concern for another, offer verbal praise, a hug or another positive gesture.
Though babies are born without bias, nonjudgmental adults are raised, not born. As a parent, it’s up to you to ensure that your child becomes one.
