Texas school districts to receive letter grades

Texas school districts to receive letter grades

Posted: Updated:

Texas schools will soon be graded just like the students inside the classrooms.

Schools districts will receive scores on an A through F grading system. 

The system is largely based on student performance from achievement tests, like the STARR Test, and their improvement from the year before. 

Other grading aspects include graduation preparation and student performance from subgroups and special education.

Lubbock ISD Superintendent Kathy Rollo said she loves the way the districts grades schools performance on student development, however, it's not perfect.

"At the elementary level it is solely based on one test and so we know that one test given on one day is not always the greatest measure of a child's performance, there's always so much more to education than that but I do believe there's nothing on that test that we don't want our kids to know," Rollo said.

Grades are expected to be released next Wednesday.
