The Texas Education Agency (TEA) released the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) accountability ratings today.

Lubbock ISD continued to show improvement in the ratings. The STAAR system rates schools and districts based on four indexes and awards "distinction designations" to schools that exhibit significant performance when compared to demographically-similar schools in Texas.

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 in reading and math for individual students

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

Index 4 - Postsecondary Readiness – Evaluates four different post-secondary readiness indicators

As a district, Lubbock ISD was rated as "Met Standard." Standards for 2016 increased across all content areas and additional subjects and test types were included in accountability ratings this year. Despite tougher standards, one fewer campus was rated as "Improvement Required" for 2016. Campus Distinctions, traditionally released with accountability standards to recognize exceptional performance, have been postponed by the agency until September 16.

Districts across the state, including Lubbock ISD, experienced many testing problems with the new vendor overseeing the massive testing program. Scores and ratings will be carefully reviewed during the appeals window.

Thirty-nine of 47 campuses received the state accountability rating of "Met Standard."
