Federal Report Card
The State and Local Education Agency (LEA) Federal Report Cards are available.
For some districts and campuses, small data cells are masked in order to protect student confidentiality. When this is the case, the reports may display an asterisk (*) or a percentage preceded by a less than or greater than symbol (<1%).
The pdf files may be saved at the local level for posting on the LEA/campus websites.

Dissemination of the Federal Report Card:
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.
A sample parent notification letter that LEAs may modify to fit their needs is available below. TEA strongly encourages the LEAs to translate the sample letter in a language and format that all parents can understand.
Sample notification letter- Word, 15KB
Sample notification letter in Spanish- Word, 17KB
LEAs are not required to use this letter but they 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 first working day in May.
