RISD Posts a B, Overall Score of 88, on New A-F Accountability Ratings

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has released 2018 accountability ratings under its new A-F letter grade rating system and Richardson ISD posted a B with an overall score of 88. 2018 ratings for schools remain either Met Standard or Improvement Required. Among RISD schools, 50 of 52 eligible campuses received a rating of Met Standard, and two received a rating of Improvement Required. In January, TEA will release school letter ratings.

This latest state accountability system—which was introduced by lawmakers in 2015—was designed to grade district and campus performance in a way similar to the marks received on student report cards. While its A-F structure made significant changes to the Texas Education Agency’s assessment process, scoring remains heavily based on student performance on the state’s standardized STAAR test.

“Regardless of ratings, we want to keep the intended purpose of the accountability system in mind as a tool that educators can use to improve student achievement,” said RISD Superintendent Dr. Jeannie Stone. “As we do each year, the system will be used to help us identify areas in which we’re doing well and also opportunities for improvement. It’s important to remember that almost all of the data used to determine ratings comes from a single assessment instrument, which obviously can’t capture the complete picture of how a child is learning and growing. We will continue to focus on teaching and evaluating all students throughout the school year and keeping the STAAR test, and the ratings that primarily result from it, in perspective.”
