McKinney ISD receives an overall B in 2019 Texas Education Agency A-F accountability ratings


The Texas Education Agency has given nearly half of McKinney ISD schools an A grade in the first official release of the state agency’s A-F accountability rating system. No MISD schools received an F grade—the lowest possible from the TEA.

Overall, MISD dropped from an A grade in 2018 to a B grade in the 2019 rating. The district received 89 out of 100 points in 2019, according to TEA data. This is slightly lower than the overall district grade received last year—90 out of 100 points.

McKinney’s 2019 rating, which was released by the TEA Aug. 15, reviews how the district performed during the 2018-19 school year. The TEA uses three domains to measure a district. MISD received a B for student achievement, a B for school progress and a B for Closing the Gap.
