Two Wise County school districts earned A’s in the first A-F accountability ratings released Wednesday by the Texas Education Agency.
Alvord and Northwest received the letter grade of A based on three domains measuring academic performance — student achievement, school progress and closing the gaps. All districts in the county earned passing grades.
In the student achievement domain, student performance is evaluated across all subjects for all students on both general and alternate assessments, college, career and military readiness indicators and graduation rates. The school progress measures district and campus outcomes in two areas — the number of students that grew at least one year academically as measured by State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) results and the achievement of all students relative to districts or campuses with similar economically disadvantaged percentages. In the closing the gaps domain, data is used to demonstrate differentials among racial and ethnic groups, socioeconomic backgrounds and other factors.
Alvord scored an average of 90, getting an 89 for student achievement, 84 for school progress and 93 for closing the gaps.
Northwest earned a 90 for student achievement, 85 for school progress and 94 for closing the gaps.
Decatur and Paradise earned B’s in the rating.
Decatur’s overall score was an 86. The district scored an 87 for student achievement, 83 for school progress and 84 for closing the gaps.
Paradise graded out with an 83, with an 84 for student achievement, 76 for school progress and 82 for closing the gaps.
Because it is a single-campus district, Slidell was assigned the rating of met standard with an overall grade of 80. The district had an 80 for student achievement, 84 for school progress and 72 for closing the gaps.
