Schools Get "Report Cards" On Performance

The report card is out on East Texas schools.

Just this afternoon, the Texas Education Agency released this year's school accountability ratings. The agency says tougher standards this year meant more schools had lower ratings than in previous years.

Possible ratings, from best to worst, are "exemplary," "recognized," "acceptable," and "unacceptable."

Tyler ISD has seven "recognized" schools, 16 "acceptable," and one "unacceptable" -- Griffin Elementary.

"In Griffin's particular case, they were unacceptable because of the area of science," Roland Hernandez, Ph.D, TISD's deputy superintendent, said. "And according to the commissioner around the state, of the campuses that were unacceptable, it was because of either math or science."

Longview ISD has one "exemplary" school: Hudson Elementary. The 15 other schools in the district are rated "acceptable."

"At Hudson Pep, we have some exemplary teaching practices being implemented and some excellent teachers," Charlotte Parramore, Ph.D, assistant superintendent for curriculum instruction, said. "So those teaching practices will certainly stand as a model for other districts, other schools in our district."

Jacksonville ISD has three "recognized" schools and five "acceptable" schools.

All three school districts rated "acceptable" overall.
