ACCREDITATION STATUS

District Accreditation

According to the Texas Education Code (TEC) §39.052(b) and (c), the commissioner of Education is required to annually assign an accreditation status, or rating, to school districts in the state of Texas.

There are four accreditation ratings:

Accredited: This rating indicates that the Texas Education Agency (TEA) recognizes the district as a public school that meets the accreditation standards.

Accredited-Warned: This rating indicates that the district exhibits deficiencies in academic performance and/or financial accountability for two consecutive school years. If deficiencies are not addressed, continued deficiencies will lead to probation or revocation of accreditation.

Accredited-Probation: This rating indicates that the district exhibits deficiencies in academic performance and/or financial accountability for three consecutive school years. These deficiencies must be addressed to avoid revocation of accreditation.

Not Accredited-Revoked: This rating indicates that TEA does not recognize the district as a Texas public school because the district failed to meet accreditation standards for four or more consecutive school years.
