Today, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) released the list of 2016 distinctions earned through the state accountability system ratings for school districts and charter schools across the state. Tyler ISD earned 28 distinctions, up from 23 in 2015.
Distinctions are awarded based on high levels of achievement in the areas of four different indexes; Student Achievement, Student Progress, Closing Performance Gaps and Postsecondary Readiness. These indexes are also used to determine if a school receives a Met Standard; Met Alternative Standard; or Improvement Required rating. Tyler ISD announced in August that all but three campuses received a Met Standard rating for 2016. Distinctions can also be earned in the areas of Reading/ELA, Math, Science and Social Studies.
“Earning distinctions in the state accountability system is extremely difficult to do,” Superintendent Dr. Marty Crawford said. “We are extremely proud of these campuses, who for some are receiving distinctions for the first time. I applaud all of our campuses for a job well done.”
