- Texas Academic Performance Report: Texas Academic Performance Report is the Texas Education Agency's (TEA) accountability system for evaluating school districts and campuses. The following reports are published in .pdf format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print.
- What is Public School Choice?
- Socioeconomic Diversity Pilot: beginning in August of 2016, Dallas ISD will launch Solar Preparatory School for Girlsas the district's first "Socioeconomic Diversity Pilot" school. Student enrollment practices, while often overlooked, can have a huge impact on student achievement because they can shape the socioeconomic makeup of the student body. In 1966, the influential Coleman Report found that the largest predictor of academic achievement is the socioeconomic status (SES) of the student’s family and that the second largest predictor is the socio-economic makeup of the student body in the school itself.
