Many education sites rank schools based on student performance alone, but TXSmartSchools also includes education spending efficiency. TXSmartSchools uses academic, financial, and demographic data to identify school districts and campuses that produce high academic achievement while also maintaining cost-effective operations.
Using both academic progress and spending levels at Texas' school districts and individual school campuses, each district and campus has been assigned a Smart Score of one to five stars, indicating its success in combining cost-effective spending with the achievement of measurable student academic progress compared with their fiscal peers. Five stars reflects the strongest relative progress combined with the lowest relative spending. The TXSmartSchools rating method for school and district comparison calculations uses three-year averages to get more stable and persistent measures with less year-to-year volatility. Thus, the 2019 TXSmartSchools results are based on data from the 2017-2018, 2016-2017, and 2015-2016 school years.
