The new school and school district score cards are in:
The new system evaluates districts and individual schools is based on STAAR results. Schools can now simply achieve “Met Standard,” “Improvement Required” or “Not Rated.” Districts are graded on student achievement, student progress, closing performance gaps and postsecondary readiness.
“This is a completely revamped assessment system, and it is much more rigorous,” Superintendent Brad Lancaster said. “When we take that into consideration, we’re really pleased with the overall results. In previous years, all of our schools were ranked ‘Exemplary,’ and it’s really gratifying to know that when the state makes the test harder the kids still do well.”
