Ask the editor: How did local districts score in the TEA’s second year of accountability ratings?


The Texas Education Agency has shifted to its new A-F accountability ratings system for campuses this year, a change impending since the Texas Legislature approved the system in 2017. According to 2018-19 ratings, all three local school districts performed better than or as well as last year, with Conroe ISD earning 89 points for a B, Montgomery ISD earning 93 points for an A, and Willis ISD earning 85 points for a B.

During the 2017-18 school year, CISD earned a B, MISD earned a B and WISD earned a C in their overall scores—scores which incorporate the three categories of Student Achievement, School Progress and Closing the Gaps.

On a campus level, only one school in MISD—Lincoln Elementary—earned a C, and all others earned a B or above. WISD saw Lynn Lucas Middle School earn a D, and only one school—Turner Elementary—earned an A. In CISD, Creighton and San Jacinto elementary schools earned D’s, but all others earned C’s or greater.
