CCISD Releases Preliminary Accountability Ratings
League City, Texas - With more than 93% of all students passing the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) tests in all subjects and more than 98% of students completing high school, the Clear Creek Independent School District anticipates a Recognized rating by the Texas Education Agency. School district officials outlined student performance and predicted campus accountability ratings in a presentation to the CCISD Board of Trustees on Monday, July 25, 2011.
The District’s rating went from Exemplary in 2010 to Recognized in 2011, largely because the State changed the way it calculates academic performance and does not permit what is known as Texas Projection Measure (TPM). “As always, we will utilize this data as a means for continuous improvement,” said Greg Smith, Superintendent of Schools. “CCISD is an exemplary place for students to learn and the results indicate we are closing the achievement gap that is all too often negatively highlighted at the state and national level.”
For a school district or campus to be rated Exemplary, 90% or more of students in each student group must pass the TAKS test. The student groups designated by Texas are as follows: Economically Disadvantaged, Hispanic, African American and White. CCISD outperformed the state average in all these categories. Additionally, at least 25% of all students and 25% of Economically Disadvantaged must score commended in Reading/English Language Arts and Mathematics.
2010-2011 TAKS Highlights
89% of English Language Learners showed proficiency in the Reading TAKS test
87% of Economically Disadvantage students passed Mathematics
98% of all students completed high school in 2010
With the change in accountability measurement, 15 CCISD schools will be Exemplary; 22 schools will be recognized; and six schools will be rated Academically Acceptable.
