Austin-Area School Districts Ranked

The Texas Education Agency recently released the first set of district accountability ratings with the new A-F system. This system was developed for two primary reasons: to inform parents about how their schools are performing and to provide information to help district and campus leaders. In previous years, the TEA only rated schools on a pass or fail basis. This new method aims to provide information about school districts and to identify possible areas for improvement. Here’s a look at the ratings for schools around the Austin-area:

  • Eanes ISD – 95 out of 100
    • Student Achievement: A
    • School Progress: A

How are the grades determined? The new A-F system ranks school districts in the following areas: 

  • Student Achievement – Measures how much students know and end-of-year performance
  • School Progress – Looks at student performance over time compared with other schools
  • Closing the Gap – Examines how different populations of students are performing in the district
