NCISD Meets State Accountability Ratings


The Texas Education Agency released the 2014 state accountability system ratings for more than 1,200 school districts and charters, and more than 8,500 campuses. The ratings reveal that New Caney ISD achieved the rating of Met Standard. All NCISD schools achieved the Met Standard seal of approval and four campuses also earned one or more coveted distinction designations.

“We’re proud of our students, teachers and principals. We have strong academic programs at all our campuses and they are only going to get better,” said Dr. Delinda Neal, NCISD Executive Director of Instruction. Dr. Neal presented the ratings to the Board of Trustees at the NCISD Board Meeting on August 18.

The 2014 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).

Campuses that achieve the rating of Met Standard can also earn distinction designations in: Top 25 Percent Student Progress; Academic Achievement in Reading/English Language Arts; and Academic Achievement in Mathematics. Four NCISD schools have earned a distinction designation in one or more areas.
