Number and Percentage of Students Attending Schools Rated as "F" by Texas Education Agency

Status

NOTE: In recognition of the disruption caused by the COVID-19 emergency, TEA labeled all campuses Not Rated: Declared State of Disaster for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years. 2020 and 2021 data for this measure cannot be provided due to the source survey being postponed.  We will update this page with 2022 data when it becomes available. More information on the ESEA waiver request can be found on the TEA website.
This measure card shows the percentage of students that attended schools rated as "F" by the Texas Education Agency. This rate was determined by dividing the number of students who attended schools rated as "F" in Travis County by the total number of students in schools in Travis County. With less than three percent of students attending an "F" rated school, students are receiving quality education and are being set up for future success within their city and community.

Trending

The data suggests that the percentage of students attending schools rated as "F" has been less than 3% over the last few years. There is room for improvement. We will continue to monitor the situation and report to the City of Austin with ideas for performance improvement.
