Methodology

This report summarizes the teachers employed in Texas public school districts by percentage of the day teaching in a subject area (e.g. Science, Social Studies, Mathematics) for statewide for a series of years. In this report if a person teaches multiple subject areas, the person is counted in multiple rows based upon the percentage of their workday teaching the subject area. For example, a person may teach a math class and a science class. This person would be counted once in each subject area.

Beginning with the 2007-08 school year this report no longer includes staff employed by Education Service Centers.
