Improving Your FAST Rating

If you want to improve your school’s or district’s FAST rating, there are several steps you can take:

  1. Use the FAST reporting tool to compare your school or district with five-star schools or districts that are similar to yours in size and/or other factors such as geographic location, demographics, etc. Review their spending patterns, student achievement statistics, Texas Education Agency accountability ratings and more.
  2. Review the detailed Smart Practices to see the innovative ways schools and districts across Texas are saving costs and improving student achievement. Seek ways to interact with other schools and districts through forums such as chat rooms, message boards and other social media channels.
  3. Form a committee of your community’s brightest and best teachers, public officials and business and education leaders. Meet once a month to discuss ways in which you can improve academic achievement in your school or district while reducing costs and review your state-mandated district and campus improvement plans to make sure they address these goals.
  4. Work with your regional education service center (ESC) and the Comptroller’s office to identify ways your school or district can maximize efficiencies, such as by buying in bulk. Texas’ 20 regional ESCs play an integral role in providing essential services to school districts. A list of the state’s regional education service centers and their contact information is available online.
  5. The Texas Education Agency (TEA), Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) and Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) all have annual conferences and meetings. Contact these organizations to attend workshops on ways to improve efficiency and save money in your school or district.
  6. TEA provides leadership, guidance and resources to help schools meet the educational needs of all students. The Comptroller’s office oversees state purchasing, awarding and managing hundreds of contracts on behalf of more than 200 state agencies as well as local governments. Both the Texas Education Agency and the Comptroller’s office stand ready to help your school or district identify ways to improve academic achievement and streamline purchasing.
