About the Data

FAST uses both academic and financial reports produced by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). In the 2012 FAST results, the FAST Academic Progress, Cost-adjusted Spending and Spending Index measures are three-year averages of data from the 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11 school years. These measures are based on the most recent available TEA data.

The FAST Tool – Run a Report – uses the following data:

  • FAST measures, including Academic Progress, Cost-adjusted Spending and the Spending Index are three-year averages from the 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11 school years
  • All other academic data are from 2010-11
  • All other financial data are from 2009-10
  • Accountability ratings are from 2010-11
