College, career and military readiness, a metric used by the Texas Education Agency to measure student achievement, has improved year over year in Hutto ISD.

What you need to know

The proportion of students who graduated from HISD who are determined to be ready to enter the workforce, attend college or enlist in the military grew significantly, data from an annual report on the district's performance shows.

In a public hearing on the 2023 Texas Academic Performance Report received by the district in December, Brittany Swanson—HISD's associate superintendent of instruction and innovation—said the district outperformed some of its neighbors in this measure of student achievement during the 2021-22 school year. CCMR performance data shows that 79.5% of HISD students had achieved CCMR status, compared to 66.7% in the 2020-21 school year.

Per the report, the regional average for CCMR achievement was 70.5%, and 70% statewide.

The report, which details academic performance for the 2022-23 school year, includes this metric as a lagging indicator, meaning that it is based on data from the prior school year. For example, the report for the current 2023-24 school year will include CCMR data for the 2022-23 school year.

What they're saying

"This is a celebration for Hutto ISD," Swanson said. "We are well above our state and region colleagues in this area. This is the most recent data, for our class of 2022. You can see there we had 79.5% of our graduates college, career and military ready, and made a lot of progress between the class of 2021 and class of 2022."

What else?

In past years, the TAPR has been accompanied by a letter-grade accountability rating. However, due to legal challenges, the ratings for the 2022-23 report are currently unavailable, Swanson said.
