Tyler, Texas (KETK) — The Texas Education Agency (TEA) today released the 2013 state accountability system ratings for school districts and charter schools across the state. Districts, campuses and charters receive one of three ratings under the new accountability system: Met Standard;Met Alternative Standard;or Improvement Required.
Under the new system, the District, as well as Robert E. Lee and John Tyler high schools, all six middle schools and 13 elementary schools, were rated as Met Standard. Of the schools rated as having Met Standard, 62% earned one or more distinction designations.
The 2013 ratings are based on a revised system that uses various indicators to provide greater detail on the performance of a district or a charter and each individual campus throughout the state. The performance index framework includes four areas:Student Achievement, Student Progress, Closing Performance Gaps and Postsecondary Readiness.
• Two Improvement Required schools missed only one of the applicable index targets and two missed two of the applicable index targets.
