Tyler ISD sees impressive turnaround in state accountability ratings

August 15, 2016

 

Tyler – The Texas Education Agency (TEA) today released the 2016 State Accountability System Ratings for school districts and charter schools across the state and Tyler ISD is extremely pleased with the results.

 

As a district, Tyler ISD received a Met Standard rating. Most notably, at the campus level, 15 of 17 elementary schools, five of six middle schools and both high schools received a Met Standard rating with many earning distinctions for high levels of achievement in that particular index. Since 2014, Tyler ISD has gone from having 11 campuses rated as Improvement Required down to nine campuses in 2015 and now only three campuses in 2016.

 

“We are thrilled that seven of our campuses who received an Improvement Required rating last year have now received the Met Standard rating,” Superintendent Dr. Marty Crawford said. “Furthermore, many of these campuses are expected to earn distinctions. This success is certainly a reflection of the commitment and dedication of administrators, teachers, staff and students to setting and achieving high goals.”

 

Under the State Accountability Rating System initiated in 2013, districts, campuses and charters receive one of three ratings: Met Standard; Met Alternative Standard; or Improvement Required. In order to receive a rating of Met Standard, a district or campus must meet the state target for either Index 1 or Index 2, and both Index 3 and 4. The 2016 grading requirements for achieving Met Standard were increased for each student in every grade level and subject area tested. The State 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.
