    Accountability Rating

    The 85th Texas Legislature passed House Bill (HB) 22, establishing three domains for measuring the academic performance of districts and campuses: 
    Student Achievement, School Progress, and Closing the Gaps
    This year, districts received a rating of A, B, C, D, or F for overall performance, as well as for performance in each domain. Individual campuses will receive A–F ratings beginning in August 2019.  The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has released results of the latest version of State Accountability.

    For more information on the new rating system, visit TEA website: A-F Accountability Resources.
    CHISD received an accountability ranking of "Met Standard" and the letter grade of B from the state.  All Chapel Hill ISD campuses also received a ranking of "Met Standard".

    NCLB (No Child Left Behind)

    In 1965, Congress enacted “The Elementary and Secondary Education Act” (ESEA) which was part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s war on poverty. The most recent re-authorization of this legislation is the
    No Child Left Behind Act” of 2001 (NCLB). The primary function of NCLB is to close the achievement gap between groups of students by requiring greater accountability and offering increased flexibility and choice. The NCLB Act affects almost every school district and charter school in the state.
