For 2016 and 2017, the design of the accountability system will evaluate performance for each campus and the district according to four indices:
Index 1: Student Achievement
Index 2: Student Progress
Index 3: Closing Performance Gaps
Index 4: Postsecondary Readiness
In 2016, all campuses in Socorro ISD and the district received the highest rating that the state issues, “Met Standard,” and met all performance targets set by the state in all indices.

Starting in 2018, changes to the accountability system will take place.
House Bill (HB) 2804, passed by the 84th Texas Legislature (2015), requires the following changes:
It creates five domains of indicators that will be used to evaluate districts and campuses regarding three goals:
- Preparing students for postsecondary success
- Reducing achievement gaps among students from different racial and ethnic groups and socioeconomic backgrounds
- Informing parents and the community about district and campus performance
The bill also creates A–F rating labels to describe district and campus performance. Districts and campuses will receive a rating of A, B, C, D, or F for performance in each of the five domains and for overall performance.
