 You may find detailed information regarding Howe ISD Accountability data in the Campus Accountability Summary Reports section of this website or at the following link:
 Howe ISD uses the Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR) to pull together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and the district every year. These reports also provide extensive information on staff, finances, programs, and demographics for each school and the district. All of these reports are among the many tools our district uses to meet the standards of the No Child Left Behind/ State Accountability laws.
