Accountability Overview & Accreditation Status

  • Overview

    The Texas Education Agency (TEA) evaluates public schools and districts under state accountability requirements. TEA awards an accreditation status to each public school district and charter school based on the academic accountability rating and financial ratings from the Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas. A district or charter must be accredited by the state to operate as a public school. COCISD is an accredited school district.

    Additionally, The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), requires each State education agency to prepare and publish an annual report card with state-, district- and campus-level data. 

    This section provides information on COCISD's State Accountabilty, Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), School Report Cards (SRC), and Federal Report Cards.
