The Division of Performance Reporting is responsible for developing the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) reports, which pull together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas every year. These reports also provide extensive information on staff, finances, programs, and demographics for each school and district. From the information contained in AEIS, the division also develops and implements the state Accountability Rating system used to rate Texas public schools and school districts. The state accountability rating system includes campuses and districts rated under standard and Alternative Education Accountability (AEA) procedures.
Gold Performance Acknowledgments (GPA) are shown along with the accountability ratings on the state Accountability Ratings site; search for GPA by year. Further uses of the AEIS data include publication of Snapshot, Pocket Edition, and the School Report Card (school report cards may be viewed through the AEIS site).
The Division of Performance Reporting also evaluates all public school campuses, districts, and the state for Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) as required under the federal accountability provisions in the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act.
