TEA released a letter to Superintendents notifying them that the 90-day public dissemination and hearing period for the Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR), began on on December 21, 2018. Winter break is not included within the 90 day period. TEA requested that this information be shared with campus principals, as they would not be notified individually.

Please remember districts are required to widely publish their annual reports along with the TAPR within two weeks following the public hearing.
