12 LISD schools receive 'improvement required' rating from TEA

Provided by LISD

The Texas Education Agency released state accountability ratings for the first time since instituting the new STAAR accountability system. The new system rates campuses on four indexes:

Index 1 - Student Achievement – Represents the overall performance of all students across all subject areas and grade levels

Index 2 - Student Progress – Evaluates academic progress by subject and student group

Index 3 - Closing Performance Gaps – Evaluates academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students and the two lowest performing race/ethnicity student groups at each campus or district

Index 4 - Postsecondary Readiness – Includes various measures of high school completion and is evaluated by student group

As a district, Lubbock ISD was rated as "Met Standard." All four Lubbock ISD high schools and the Talkington School for Young Women Leaders "Met Standard," including the Index 4 target for postsecondary readiness. The district also tied the state Index 4 score, which indicates students' foundation for success in college or the workforce.

In addition, all Lubbock ISD campuses met the Index 2 student progress target, showing growth in student academic achievement and exceeding the Index 2 score for the state. Overall, 12 of 50 campuses received a rating of "Improvement Required" for missing one or more of the four index targets. They are: Dunbar College Preparatory Academy, Slaton Middle School; Bayless, Bean, Brown, Guadalupe, Hodges, Jackson, Parkway, Stewart, Wheatley and Wolffarth Elementary Schools.

LISD Superintendent Berhl Robertson, Jr., Ed.D. said, "While we were disappointed to have some schools not meet the standard, the indicators also showed that we are making academic progress and student achievement is moving in the right direction. I have full confidence in our teaching staff and administration."

"I'm pleased with the plans we have in place and excited for the promise of the coming school year," Robertson added.
