Midland ISD A-F December 30, 2016 RatingsPreview of the Upcoming "A-F" Accountability System
The 84th Legislature passed HB 2804, changing the Texas school accountability system so that every campus and district receives one of five ratings from A-F. Much like students receive grades in individual subjects and those are combined for a GPA, the law requires schools and districts to be issued grades based on five different areas of performance or “domains,” and those five grades must be combined into a single overall rating.
Under HB 2804, the TEA was charged with presenting the legislature an example of what the ratings would look like if 2015-2016 information was utilized to meet the requirements of the new system. These results will become public on Friday, January 6, 2017.
The actual A-F rating system will not become official until August 2018; therefore, it is important to note that new information cannot be gleaned from these results at this time and it is only for informational purposes at this point in time. Many of the data points to be utilized in the new system are not even yet collected by districts and campuses.
Midland ISD School Board approved a resolution requesting refinement of the A-F System at the January 9, 2017 board meeting.
As new information is acquired, we will update this webpage to keep our community informed.
