Low Accountability Scores For LISD

More bad news for the Lubbock Independent School District. The Texas Education Agency released its accountability ratings and found three Lubbock elementary schools "academically unacceptable". Alderson, Bean and Arnett Elementary have been categorized as low performing schools due to low scores in science.

The scores are based off of the Taks Test. Ironically, the state also found Estacado High School academically acceptable. If you'll recall on Wednesday, the school was deemed unacceptable under federal standards.

Wayne Havens, superintendent for LISD, says the rating system is flawed because the standards are not the same. "I think our state accountability system, because it's been in place nine years, does a better job of actually saying what our students are doing," says Havens.
