TISD fails Adequate Yearly Progress standards

6 schools in Tyler ISD have failed to meet adequate yearly progress standards.

The federal rating is part of the No Child Left Behind Act.

TISD's Superintendent says this is the first time some special education students were required to take grade level tests.

He says the standards are higher, but are also based on the same scores they received in the state-wide accountability system.

"Same measurement as the state standards where we came out with some relatively decent standards and you apply a different measurement tool to it with AYP and you get a different rating. And it's one of the things we find if difficult, having dual standards like this. But certainly we're going to look at it as an opportunity to measure where we are and move forward," said Dr. Randy Reid.

This is based on last year's scores. Superintendent Reid says TISD has already implemented new curriculum.
