TEA Ratings Show Most Districts and Schools 'Met Standard'

The Texas Education Agency accountability ratings out today reveal that most school districts – 92.5 percent — achieved the new “met standard” rating — the state’s temporary pass-fail system that replaced the exemplary-to-unacceptable scale. Both the Dallas and Fort Worth school systems passed.


But within the districts, 34 DISD schools are listed as “needing improvement” — the equivalent of “academically unacceptable” under the old rating system.  That’s one more unacceptable school in DISD compared to the last ratings numbers, released in 2011.

In Fort Worth ISD, 28 schools are listed as “needing improvement.” That’s more than the 22 Academically Unacceptable schools that made the list in 2011.
