The Texas Education Agency 2017-18 Accountability Ratings are in.

The Texas Education Agency released the 2017-18 accountability ratings for school districts across the state Wednesday, Aug. 15.

Tomball ISD is one of only 153 school districts and charter schools receiving an overall A rating, according to a news release from the TEA. Across the state, 829 districts and district charters received a rating based on an A-F scale. TISD earned 94 of 100 possible points overall.

“Achieving an A rating reflects the hard work and commitment of everyone within a school district, starting with our classroom teachers. We should all celebrate the outstanding work of these dedicated educators,” said Commissioner of Education Mike Morath in a statement. “Districts with high levels of poverty who attain this high level of performance are proof positive that poverty is not destiny. With strong instruction and curriculum, all students can succeed.”

Ninety-two districts across the state did not receive an overall rating, as these districts were affected by Hurricane Harvey last August.

Here's how TISD ranked in each domain.

Student Achievement: A
This rating is based on how much students know and are able to do at the end of the school year. TISD earned 92 of 100 possible points.

School Progress: A
This rating is based on how students perform over time, comparing their progress to similar schools. TISD earned 90 of 100 possible points.

Closing the Gaps: A
This rating is based on the performance of different populations of students. TISD earned 99 of 100 possible points.

Each of the following campuses received a “Met Standard” rating as well as an overall grade.

Overall grades for campuses are calculated based on the school’s performance in three domains: Student Achievement, School Progress and Closing the Gaps, TEA officials said. TEA takes the higher score provided between Student Achievement—which factors in STAAR tests, SAT scores and other college and career readiness variables—and Student Progress, which examines how students perform compared to the previous year.

The agency then factors in what performance gaps exist between different groups within the Closing the Gaps domain, which considers the ethnicities and socioeconomic backgrounds of students as well as economically disadvantaged numbers and other factors.

Here’s how each campus was graded overall.
