The Texas Education Agency accountability ratings system rates all public schools, charter schools, and school districts in the State of Texas. The criteria are the same for schools and districts, and are discussed below. Based on how the school or district performs, the school or district will receive one of four possible rankings: Exemplary (the highest possible ranking), Recognized, Academically Acceptable, and Academically Unacceptable (the lowest possible ranking). In rare instances, the category Not Rated: Other will be used. According to the agency, the number of state schools and districts receiving the top ratings of “exemplary” and “recognized” increased from 2,213 in 2005 to 3,380 in 2006 – a 52.73% increase over the previous year.
