State agency rates Richardson ISD as a B-grade district under accountability system


The Texas Education Agency has given Richardson ISD a B grade in the first official release of the agency’s A-F accountability ratings system.

The district received the same score in 2018. This year, nine schools received an A grade and four schools received a D.

A-grade schools include Brentfield Elementary, Canyon Creek Elementary, Math/Science/Tech Magnet, Mohawk Elementary, Prairie Creek Elementary, Prestonwood Elementary, Spring Creek Elementary, Parkhill Junior High and Richardson High.

D schools include Audelia Creek, Carolyn Bukhair, Northrich and Wallace elementary schools.

This is the first time since school year 2015-16 that no RISD campus was rated Improvement Required, according to the district.

“Overall, we’re pleased with the academic growth of students,” RISD Superintendent Jeannie Stone said in a news release. “While challenges certainly remain, we know that overall our blend of curriculum, resources and interventions are working, and we anticipate student growth to continue.”

RISD scored a B in all three domains used to develop a district’s score. It received an 86 in student achievement, an 89 in school progress and an 85 in closing the gaps.

The A-F accountability system began when the 85th Texas Legislature in 2017 passed a bill requiring school districts and their campuses to be graded on three domains.
