HOUSTON, TX (KTRK) — Parents can now find out if their child’s school or district made the grade, as the Texas Education Agency released the 2022 accountability ratings Monday morning.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the issues schools were facing, changes were made to the grading system.
In the past, schools received a letter grade based on their performance. This year, however, low-scoring schools will not receive the grade.
For example, if your child’s school gets an A, B, or C, that score will be listed on the state’s website.
An “A” indicates that many students do well in school.
However, if your child attends a school that achieves a D or F score, the score will not be listed. Instead, you’ll see the words “Unscored” along with an explanation that the label means the domain or scaled total score is less than 70. This probably indicates that too few students are on the right path.
According to website txschools.gov, the assessments measure “how much students are learning in each class and whether or not they are ready for the next class. They also show how well a school or district is preparing its students for success after high school, college, the workforce, or the military.”
ABC13 reviewed the credentials of several districts and schools in our area. Here’s a look at some of those results.
You can view ratings by district or search by school.
TEA Officer Mike Morath is expected to visit Klein ISD later Monday to discuss the accountability assessments.
