2016-2017 Texas School Report Cards

AUSTIN – Commissioner of Education Mike Morath announced today that the 2016–17 School Report Cards (SRC) are now available on the Texas Education Agency website

Designed to inform parents and guardians about a school’s characteristics and achievements, the School Report Card combines parts of other recently released accountability reports to provide a variety of campus-level information concerning student and campus performance.

The School Report Card includes the following information for each campus in Texas:

  • 2017 State Academic Accountability Rating
  • Campus Distinction Designations
  • Attendance Rates
  • Enrollment Figures
  • Dropout Rates
  • Class Size Averages
  • State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) Results
  • ACT/SAT results
  • Per-Student Financial Expenditures

These campus reports, required by the Texas Legislature and prepared by the Texas Education Agency, should be sent to the parent or guardian of every child enrolled in a Texas public school by the end of January (refer to the letter to the Superintendent attached to this email for additional information).

The 2016–17 School Report Cards are available on the Texas Education Agency website at
