Report Cards Arrive For Texas School Districts
The day before most students headed back to school, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) released the 2018 state accountability ratings for more than 8,700 campuses statewide. For the first time, districts received letter grades, A-F, for overall performance.
Two Texas 288 districts took home As, Pearland (94) and Friendswood (95). Four of the six districts in the Texas 288 region reported at least one of the Hurricane Harvey criteria. Alvin ISD, Angleton ISD, Brazosport ISD and Houston ISD are listed as Not Rated: Harvey Provision District. In addition, 13 districts received a Not Rated label for reasons other than Hurricane Harvey.
Individual school campuses received one of three ratings under the accountability system: Met Standard, Met Alternative Standard, or Improvement Required. Campuses are rated based on performance student achievement, school progress (STARR test) and performance closing gaps. The A–F rating labels will be applied to campuses at the end of the upcoming school year.
