Education

(KTAB/KRBC) – The Texas Education Agency released ‘A-F’ accountability ratings for schools and districts for the second time, showing how the Big Country stacks up against the rest of the state. 

The ratings grade districts and schools overall and also in individual categories based on student abilities at the end of the year (Student Achievement), the growth of students’ abilities compared to other districts (School Progress), and how well different groups of students are performing (Closing the Gaps). 

Abilene ISD received a ‘B’ rating overall, and in the individual categories, the district was given a ‘B’ in Student Achievement and School Progress. They received a ‘C’ in Closing the Gaps. 

Factors that contributed these scores include a STAAR performance score of 75%, a college career and military readiness score of 92%, a graduation rate of 90%, a reading and math growth rate of 70%, an English Language proficiency rate of 100%, and more.
