Are Lubbock Area Schools Making the Grade?

The first day of school is just under four weeks away, and already districts across the state are being graded. The Texas Education Agency released its accountability ratings on Wednesday.

The state gives the ratings based on the most recent TAKS scores. The ratings are as follows: academically unacceptable, academically acceptable, recognized, and exemplary.

Lubbock ISD, the county's largest district, is considered academically acceptable as a whole. The district also doubled its number of exemplary schools since 2006. But the state says LISD still has some improvements to make. Three are rated academically unacceptable, including Atkins Middle School, Jackson Elementary, and Dupre Elementary. There are also fewer recognized schools this year, since last year.

Lubbock-Cooper ISD has increased to recognized status, though two schools have apparently swapped ratings. South Elementary is now rated exemplary, and North Elementary is recognized. Lubbock Cooper Junior High is recognized as well.

Frenship ISD also remains at recognized status this year. Willow Bend Elementary is rated academically acceptable, while the rest are recognized.

Slaton ISD went up in 2007. West Ward Elementary is exemplary again this year, while Slaton Junior High and Austin Elementary have moved up to recognized status.

Private schools were also rated, with high marks going to Rise Academy, who is rated exemplary again this year. South Plains Academy, however, is considered academically unacceptable.

All other schools are rated favorably.
