See how Clear Creek ISD scored in the 2018-19 A-F accountability system

The Texas Education Agency released the 2018-19 accountability ratings for school districts across the state Aug. 15. Clear Creek ISD received a B score of 89% for the 2018-19 school year.

Out of the 43 CCISD campuses that received ratings, 14 earned an A, 22 earned a B, six earned a C, one earned a D and none earned an F.

Overall grades are calculated based on performance in three domains: Student Achievement, School Progress and Closing the Gaps, according to the TEA. Here is how the district 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. CCISD earned 92 of 100 possible points.

School Progress: B
This rating is based on how students perform over time, comparing their progress to similar schools. CCISD earned 87 of 100 possible points.

Closing the Gaps: B
This rating is based on the performance of different populations of students. CCISD earned 89 of 100 possible points.

Overall, district leadership believes it received good scores.

"Our schools did well," Superintendent Greg Smith said. "We certainly have room to grow.”

However, Smith said the district does not support the state's "overreliance" on standardized testing. The TEA scores do not give an accurate representation of how the district is doing overall because they are based on a snapshot of student performance, officials have said, which is why the district started a community-based accountability report years ago.

CCISD did not earn an overall A rating because one school, Clear View High School, which is an alternative school for at-risk students, earned a D. Smith said the school teaches about 200 students who already have "two strikes" when they enter.

“But they come out so much better. They come out feeling like they have value," Smith said.
