District & Campus Accountability and Performance Reports
2016 Accountability Ratings
Harmony Public Schools is excited to announce that all 46 campuses statewide met or exceeded state standards on the annual State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) exam.
The Texas Education Agency released the 2016 state accountability ratings in August for 1,207 school districts, including charters, and 8,673 campuses.
All public schools, along with their districts, are graded on a pass or fail system with Harmony exceeding all state requirements. In addition, all seven of Harmony’s districts passed state accountability standards.
More than 78 percent of Harmony students passed the STAAR exam this year, 3 percentage points higher than the state average of 75 percent.
“We are thrilled to see the continued excellence at our campuses,” said Dr. Soner Tarim, CEO of Harmony Public Schools. “This only sets the stage for even greater achievement in the coming years.”
The TEA will announce campus and district distinctions in September. To access accountability reports and search for your district/campus, please click here.
2016 Federal Report Cards
Federal Report Cards for the state, district, and campuses are available on the Texas Education Agency’s (TEA) website.
Each LEA that receives Title I, Part A funding is responsible for disseminating the State, LEA and campus-level report cards to 1) all LEA campuses, 2) to parents of all enrolled students, and 3) to make the information widely available through public means such as posting on the Internet, distribution to the media, or distribution through public agencies.
At a minimum, the LEA must—
- post direct links to the State, LEA, and campus report cards on its web site,
- make hard copies available to parents on request,
- make hard copies available for viewing in public locations, and
- notify parents of ALL students about the availability of the report cards and the options for obtaining them no later than the Monday, March 7, 2016.
LEAs must make the federal report card information readily accessible to the public, and parents must be notified of the availability of the federal report card information no later than the Monday, March 6, 2017.

Harmony Public Schools Annual Reports
The Texas Education Code (TEC), §39.306, requires each district’s board of trustees to publish an annual report that includes the TAPR, district accreditation status, campus performance objectives, information on violent or criminal incidents, and information on the performance of the previous year’s graduates in their first year of college, as reported by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

Access to Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR)
Texas Academic Performance Reports were compiled by TEA for every district and campus using PEIMS and student assessment data. The TAPR combines details of district and campus academic performance with financial reports and information about staff, programs, and demographics. Prior to the 2012–13 school year, TAPR was known as the Academic Excellence Indicator System (AEIS) reports.

The Texas Education Code (TEC), §39.306, requires each district’s board of trustees to hold a public hearing to discuss the district’s annual report within 90 days of receiving the TAPR on November 30, 2016 (winter break not included). Within two weeks following the public meeting, each district must widely publish its annual report, including posting it on the district website and other public places. The hearing may be combined with a regularly scheduled meeting of the local board of trustees.

Community and Student Engagement Reports
House Bill 5 of the 83rd Texas Legislative Session included a local evaluation requirement that is referred to as Community and Student Engagement. The statute requires each district to evaluate and designate a performance rating for the district and each of its campuses in the district based on criteria set by a local committee (TEC 39.0545). The law requires that each district and each campus be assigned a rating of exemplary, recognized, acceptable, or unacceptable. The district and campus performance ratings must be reported annually to TEA through PEIMS, and made publicly available by August 8 of each year beginning with the 2013–14 school year.
The statute provides nine factors for which the district and each campus must be evaluated:
Fine arts, wellness and physical education, community and parental involvement, 21st century workforce development program, 2nd language acquisition program, digital learning environment, dropout prevention strategies, educational programs for GT students, and compliance with statutory reporting and policy requirements.
