The Texas Education Agency released its 2018-19 accountability ratings for school districts across the state Aug. 15. New Caney ISD received a B, or an 85 out of 100, for a student enrollment of 15,360. The district improved from its 2017-18 rating of a C, or 76 out of 100 possible points.
Out of all the district’s campuses, one campus received an A, seven received a B, seven received a C, two received a D and one received an F. NCISD was unable to receive an overall rating of an A because a campus received a rating of D or F, according to the TEA website.
For the first year, both districts and individual campuses were given an A-F score by their performance in three key domains: student achievement, school progress and closing the gaps, according to the TEA website.
Here is how the district ranked in each individual domain:
Student Achievement: B
This rating is based on how much students know and are able to do at the end of the school year. NCISD earned 84 of 100 possible points.
School Progress: B
This rating is based on how students perform over time, comparing their progress to similar schools. NCISD earned 88 of 100 possible points.
Closing the Gaps: C
This rating is based on the performance of different populations of students. NCISD earned 77 of 100 possible points.
