NCISD Meets and Exceeds the 2013 TEA Accountability Ratings
The Texas Education Agency today released the 2013 state accountability system ratings for more than 1,200 school districts and charters, and more than 8,500 campuses. The ratings reveal that almost 93 percent of school districts and charters across Texas have achieved the rating of Met Standard, including New Caney ISD. All NCISD schools achieved the Met Standard seal of approval and six out of the 14 campuses earned one or more coveted distinction designations.
“I’m so proud of our teachers and staff who work hard all year long to prepare our students to be successful on the state’s tests,” said NCISD Superintendent Kenn Franklin. “Our parents also play a big role in our recent success. Parents - thank you for all of your efforts to make our children successful.”
The 2013 ratings are based on a revised system that uses various indicators to provide greater detail on the performance of a district and each individual campus throughout the state. The rating system includes student achievement (including the new STAAR test, Exit tests, and End of Course exams), student progress, closing performance gaps and post secondary readiness (for grades 9 and above).
For campuses that achieve the rating of Met Standard, distinction designations can also be earned in: Top 25 Percent Student Progress; Academic Achievement in Reading/English language arts; and Academic Achievement in Mathematics. Six out of 14 NCISD schools have earned a distinction designation in one or more areas.
“Our community should be proud of our most important assets, our children. Our School Board continues to provide unending support not only to help the district accurately measure academic progress in our district, but to also provide our schools with the resources they need to adequately support our students,” said Superintendent Franklin.
