TISD is one of 301 school districts and charter schools receiving an overall A rating in 2018-19, according to an Aug. 15 news release from the TEA.

Districts received A-F ratings for the first time in 2017-18, but this year marks the first time individual schools have received a letter rating. Previously, campuses receiving ratings of "met standard," "met alternative standard" or "improvement required."

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—the same as last year.

Closing the Gaps: B
This rating is based on the performance of different populations of students. TISD earned 89 of 100 possible points, which is 10 points less than last year.
