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 (FIRST). A district or charter must be accredited by the state to operate as a public school.
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 PISD's State Accountabilty, Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), School Report Cards (SRC), and Federal Report Cards, as well as other required postings.

Extraordinary public health and safety circumstances inhibited the ability of the state to accurately measure district and campus performance in 2020-21. Therefore, for 2020-21, all districts and campuses received a rating of Not Rated: Declared State of Disaster overall and in each domain. Distinction designations were not awarded for 2020-21.
