State and Federal School Report Cards

The State and Federal 2014-2015 School Report Cards for Jackson Elementary has now been released, and posted to the Jackson Elementary website at http://k12.pisd.edu/jackson-elementary-school/tapr. These reports are required by the Texas Legislature and Federal Department of Education. The report provides information concerning student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR), as well as information on student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures. The information contained in the School Report Card is briefly described in the “School Report Card Definitions.” If you have any questions concerning the School Report Cards, please let us know. Thank you for your continued support of Jackson Elementary.
