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. This amounts to 25% of all public school districts in the state, an increase from only 17% of school districts in the state receiving an A rating in 2017-18. Across the state, 1,201 districts and charter schools receiving a rating based on an A-F scale in 2018-19.

TISD earned 92 of 100 possible points overall, down from 94 points in 2017-18, according to TEA information.

Of the 19 TISD campuses to receive ratings, 11 earned an A, seven earned a B and one earned a C. See how campus ratings changed year over year in the interactive map below.



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."

Overall grades for campuses are calculated based on the school’s 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. TISD earned 93 of 100 possible points—one point more than last year.

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.
