Ask the editor: How did local school districts score with the TEA’s accountability ratings?


The Texas Education Agency officially shifted to its new A-F accountability rating system for its 2018-19 scores—a change that has been impending since the Texas Legislature approved the new system in 2017.

The 2019 accountability ratings, which were released Aug. 15, score districts and individual campuses by their performance in three key domains: Student Achievement, School Progress and Closing the Gaps, according to the TEA website.

According to the 2018-19 ratings, Humble ISD received an overall grade of a B, or an 88 out of 100 available points, while New Caney ISD received a B, or an 85 out of 100 points.

On a campus level, 21 HISD campuses and eight NCISD campuses received an overall score of at least a B.

Meanwhile, two HISD campuses received an F: Jack M. Fields Sr. and Whispering Pines elementary schools. One NCISD campus, Porter Elementary School, also received an F.
