State Releases Preliminary, Work-in-Progress A-F Letter Grade Ratings

The 84th Legislature passed House Bill 2804, changing the Texas school accountability system so that every campus and district would receive one of five ratings from A-F. This law required the Texas Education Agency to present a preliminary work-in-progress report noting potential grades by domain to be issued to the Legislature by January 1, 2017.

It is important to note that the Met Standard/Improvement Required ratings issued for West ISD and all campuses in August, 2016, and updated in November, 2016, are the official academic accountability ratings for the 2015–16 school year. Of course, the District and all campuses "Met Standard."

TEA noted that the ratings in this report were for informational purposes to meet a legislative requirement and represent work-in-progress models that were likely to change before A–F ratings become effective in August, 2018. TEA further noted that no inferences about official district or campus performance in the 2015–16 school year should be drawn from these ratings, and that these ratings should not be considered predictors of future district or campus performance ratings.
