Big Country TEA school district accountability ratings

(KTAB/KRBC) - The Texas Education Agency released accountability ratings for school districts across the state Tuesday, including ratings for districts in the Big Country.

The ratings are based on standardized testing results and utilize the following four indexes to determine if school districts and individual campuses meet standards or need improvement for the upcoming school year: Student Achievement, Student Progress, Closing Performance Gaps, and Post-Secondary Readiness. 

There are also distinctions available for individual campuses to earn based on above-average test scores in the following seven categories: Reading, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Student Progress, Closing Performance Gaps, and Post-Secondary Readiness. Social Studies is not an available category for elementary schools. 

KTAB and KRBC compiled accountability ratings for major school districts throughout the Big Country and learned six campuses, the Academy of Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Science in Abilene ISD, Thomas Elementary School in Abilene ISD, Cisco High School in Cisco ISD, Early High School in Early ISD Roby High School in Roby ISD, and Zephyr School in Zephyr ISD, received all distinctions possible - a feat only accomplished by an elite number of campuses in the state.
