TAPR: The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR), formerly known as the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) reports, pulled together a wide range of information annually on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas. The reports also provide extensive information on staff, programs, and demographics for each school district.
Annual Report: Texas Education Code Chapter 39 requires each district’s board of trustees to publish an annual report that includes the TAPR, campus performance objectives, a report of violent or criminal incidents, and information received under Texas Education Code §51.403(e) from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The board of trustees shall hold a hearing for public discussion of the report, and they shall widely disseminate the report within the district.
District Improvement Plan (DIP) and Campus Improvement Plans (CIP): Texas Education Code requires that each campus develop an improvement plan with established objectives based on the TAPR (Texas Academic Performance Report). These objectives are approved by the local board of trustees and are published in the annual report.
District Improvement Plan (DIP) and Campus Improvement Plan (CIP) Annual Progress: Texas Education Code requires that each campus measure and report progress toward meeting the campus improvement objectives based on the TAPR (Texas Academic Performance Report). These progress measures are for the prior year's objectives.
