Texas Public Accountability Consortium (TPAC)
The Texas Public Accountability Consortium (TPAC) is a district-led network of school leaders 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.
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’s goal is to demonstrate 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 A-F accountability system, which fails to provide a full picture of what is actually taking place in a school.
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. See a list of TPAC members.
2023-24 TPAC Meetings
While the 2023-24 TPAC events are still under development by the all-district leader-led TPAC Design Team, the events will center around the emerging needs of school leaders while maintaining an emphasis on the principles outlined in the TASA Visioning Document, Creating a New Vision for Public Education in Texas (special focus on Articles III and IV: Assessment for Learning and Accountability for Learning).

INSIGHT on TPAC …
What Participants of TPAC are Saying
Dedicated time to evaluate what is valuable to us and the opportunity to collaborate with other ISDs have been the most impactful part of TPAC.
Attending TPAC sessions keeps our district fighting the good fight!
I love hearing from other districts about how they approach CBAS (community-based accountability systems) and where they are in their journey.
The last two years have been the best yet for TPAC. My team and I have made huge strides.
TPAC work allows us to have thought partners and to point the community to others doing this work.
I really like the designated team times for planning and district work.
