The Financial Allocation Study for Texas, or FAST, compared schools of similar size and then ranked them based on spending and test scores. Schools were given a spending index ranking ranging from very low to very high, and then that number was compared with the districts accountability scores. That created a FAST rating of one to five stars.
The state strongly states that this is not a ranking of all state schools in any sort of order, but a look at what works and what doesn't.
