Azle ISD earns a ‘B’ on state report card

Wednesday, August 22, 2018

In the first year the state has assigned letter grades to school districts based on their testing results, Azle ISD earned a “B.”

While she said she was pleased with the rating, Azle ISD Superintendent Tanya Anderson said the students’ achievements went far beyond a test score.

“We believe that our staff and students are more than a score,” Anderson wrote in an email.

“However, we are very proud of our academic accomplishments.”

The A-F rating system is based on data concerning student achievement, school progress, and “Closing the Gaps” – a measure of how different student populations perform within the district.

This year’s scores, released Aug. 15, are based on data from the 2017-18 school year.

Azle ISD received an overall score of 83 out of 100, a “recognized performance” rating, which means the district “served many students well, encouraging high academic achievement and/or appropriate academic growth for most students,” according to txschools.org .

In the student achievement category – which measures “how much students know and are able to do at the end of the school year” – Azle ISD again earned a score of 83 out of 100.

In the school progress category – which measures student performance on STAAR tests year to year and compares it to similar schools -- Azle ISD earned a score of 80 out of 100.

In the “Closing the Gaps” category, which “measures the percentage of different groups of students that are performing above state goals in four areas” – the district earned a score of 84 out of 100.

Each campus in the district also received a score, and all earned a “met standard” accountability rating from the Texas Education Association (TEA).
