Final 2018 academic accountability ratings were released this week. The Texas Education Code requires the commissioner of education provide a process for districts and charters to challenge their accountability ratings. The agency received 172 total academic accountability rating appeals challenging the preliminary ratings announced in August. Appeals are first carefully reviewed by an independent appeals panel before being sent to the commissioner for a final decision. Three of 46 district appeals were granted, and 12 of 126 campus appeals were granted.
