The Texas Education Agency Accountability Rating Systems allows parents a broad overview of how their child’s school is doing compared to others in the state. Every school gets one of two ratings: Met Standard or Improvement Required. TEA evaluates four areas in determining a school’s accountability rating:
Index 1: Student Achievement (STAAR test scores)
Index 2: Student Progress (Progress in subjects from year-to-year)
Index 3: Closing Performance Gaps (Emphasis on high-level achievement of lowest performing students)
Index 4: Post Secondary Readiness: (Graduation rates, diploma plans, college and career readiness standards)
School receiving the Met Standard rating may qualify for special honors called Distinctions.

The hard work of students, teachers, and staff yielded pleasing results as each one of our schools met the increasingly demanding standards. Each campus exceeded state index minimums, providing our students with quality instruction and preparation for their future education.
