For the first time in seven years, Accountability Ratings from the Texas Education Agency show all four school districts in the County of Grimes have met agency standards.
Spokesman Lauren Callahan sorts out what the Index One through Four Targets mean for Navasota, Anderson-Shiro, Iola, and Richards.
She says the first Index looks at student achievement; Index Two look at year-to-year growth by student group; Index Three takes a look at economically disadvantaged students and the lowest-performing student groups within that campus; and Index Four looks at Secondary Readiness, which emphasizes the importance of a High School Diploma.
Callahan says both campuses and districts earn a Met Standards rating by meeting the target scores in either Index One or Two, plus both Three and Four.
And although targets are the same district-wide, Callahan tells Navasota News they differ depending upon the level of each campus. So for a more specific look, she suggests visiting tea.texas.gov/2017accountability.aspx.
