East Texas Schools Among Lowest Rated In State

Students in more than 800 public schools will be allowed to transfer next year.  That's because their schools are among the lowest rated in Texas.  Schools on the list had more than half of their students fail the TAKS test in any two of the last three years, or had an "academically unacceptable" rating in any one of the last three years.  Under the Public Education Grant Program, schools that accept transfer students get extra funding per student.  Here are some of the East Texas Schools that made the list:

TYLER ISD:

Dogan Middle

Griffin Elementary

John Tyler

Stewart Middle

LONGVIEW ISD:

JL Everhart Magnet

McClure Magnet

Pinewood Park Intermediate

South Ward Elementary

Ware Elementary

JACKSONVILLE ISD:

Jacksonville Middle
