TEA Says Most Schools Met Standard

TEA Says Most Schools Met Standard

The much-anticipated accountability rating reports have been released.

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) released the new accountability reports this week stating that while many schools have met state’s minimum education standards, more work needs to be done on those schools that require improvement.

Based on the new accountability system, schools are now graded on four indexes: STAAR Performance, Student Progress, Closing Performance Gaps, and Postsecondary readiness. Additionally, school districts will no longer be rated as “exemplary,” “recognized,” “academically acceptable
or “academically unacceptable” but rather as “met standard,” “met alternative standard,” or “improvement required.”

For campuses earning higher ratings, they will be given distinctions such as “Top 25 percent: Student Progress,” ”Academic Achievement: Reading/English Language Arts” and “Academic Achievement: Mathematics.”

Parents interested in learning more about their school’s performance are encouraged to reach out to their campus administrators.
