The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has released results of public school academic ratings and self-evaluations conducted by individual districts.
It’s the second year of a new academic rating system that measures districts and individual campuses as either meeting standards or needing improvement. The TEA also awarded academic distinctions for individual schools based on a number of subjects.
It’s the first year of TEA mandated self-evaluations of public school districts.
For both the 2012-13 and 2013-14 school years, the College Station school district met academic standards as a district and at all campuses. Ten CSISD campuses received 31 academic distinctions. As for the self-evaluation, CSISD superintendent Clark Ealy says they got a head start by being one of 23 districts participating in a statewide high performance consortium. That looks at 14 different areas, ranging from academics to extracurricular activities to health and wellness of students.

The Bryan school district went from needing improvement to meeting standards. Two years ago, five campuses needed improvement. Last year, three of them met standards. They were Bryan High, Rudder High, and Jones Elementary. Missing that mark by a slim margin in one category were Milam and Crockett elementaries. 15 Bryan ISD campuses earned 36 state distinctions.
