All Shelby County school districts have met the grade when it comes to the Texas Education Agency’s accountability grading system based on TAKS/STAAR Testing for 2012-2013.
State accountability ratings are based on four performance indexes: Student Achievement, Student Progress, Closing Performance Gaps, and Postsecondary Readiness. The six county school districts, Center, Excelsior, Joaquin, Shelbyville, Tenaha & Timpson, along with their respective campuses were all rated, “met standard”, the top rating given by TEA.
The San Augustine and Broaddus ISDs also “met standard”. However, San Augustine High School received “improvement required”.
School districts are preparing teachers and students for the next round of testing starting next month.
