TEXAS PUBLIC ACCOUNTABILITY CONSORTIUM (TPAC)

The Texas Public Accountability Consortium (TPAC) is a group of Texas school districts working to build on the success of community-based accountability systems already in use in districts across the state by developing next-generation measures and assessments that would enable wider use of such systems.

About TPAC

TPAC was formed in 2017 to build on the work of the Texas High Performance Schools Consortium and in recognition of the continuing need to develop alternatives to the A-F state-driven accountability system.

The Goal

By focusing on tools and methodologies capable of producing both actionable information and data that can figure into each district’s community-based accountability system, TPAC is working toward its goal of demonstrating that a well-crafted community-based accountability system can better communicate the quality of effort by a school and district than the state’s standardized, test-centric accountability system, which fails to provide a full picture of what is actually taking place in a school.

The Mission

TPAC’s mission is to restore agency to districts and campuses, and prove that educators who take an active role in their accountability can create rich systems that transcend any standardized system.
