TISD Scores Improving

There was some good news for TISD Wednesday.

The district is improving in TAAS scores in every category, and in the drop out rate. But the district is still average in relation to nine other districts TISD compares itself againt.

For example, while TISD increased in the percent of African American Students passing the TAAS, it still ranked 6th out of 10. TISD did rank 2nd in White Students passing at 95.9 percent. That was the district's highest ranking.

The bad news; fewer Tyler students took and passed the SAT College Entrance Exam last year than in 2001.
