Tyler ISD has received a district Texas Education Agency (TEA) accountability grade of ‘B’ for the 2018-2019 school year, an improvement over its ‘C’ grade for the 2017-2018 school year. The District received a performance score of 85, up from the previous year’s 78 score, as well as an overall Met Standard rating.
The TEA grading system scores districts on three domains for measuring the academic performance of districts and campuses: Student Achievement, School Progress, and Closing the Gaps. Districts and campuses receive a rating of A, B, C, D, or F for overall performance, as well as for performance in each domain. Seven Tyler ISD campuses saw improvement by one letter grade, 13 campuses maintained their letter grades and 6 campuses experienced a slight decline by only one letter grade.
“Tyler ISD students, staff and administrators put in a stellar effort in improving the district’s overall accountability grade from a high C to a solid B,” Superintendent Dr. Marty Crawford said. “Although this gain is significant, as we have done every year for the past five years, the District will echo its emphasis of continuous improvement to ensure successful student outcomes in all three performance measures set forth by the TEA grading system.”
