The big picture

According to the TEA's report, RRISD scored an 89 out of 100 for all three of its performance goals: student achievement, school progress and closing learning gaps. Student achievement goals are based on the proportion of students meeting expectations for the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness, while school progress tracks that performance over time. A district's ability to ensure the success of all student groups determines where it stands as far as closing learning gaps, according to the TEA.

Similarly, RRISD received a superior rating of "A" from the Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas. Announced Aug. 4, preliminary financial ratings and information show RRISD spent $15,241 per student for the 2021-22 school year, which was slightly higher than the state average of $14,752. However, this data is based on total funding received by the district and does not account for recapture payments made to the state.
