The Texas Education Agency released its annual school and district accountability rankings Wednesday morning. The TEA’s new A-F system went into effect for the first time this year for ratings given to overall districts.
The B grade is a combination of three separate ratings. Comal ISD received an A in student performance, a B in school progress and a B in closing performance gaps. The district fell just one point shy of achieving an A grade.
Individual schools, however, continued to be rated as Met Standard, Met Alternative Standard, Not Rated or Improvement Required in the 2017-18 ratings. Texas districts and schools will both be rated using the A-F system beginning in August 2019.
