Paris ISD Meets TEA State Standard
The Texas Education Agency released the 2013 School Accountability Ratings on August 8th. This year marked the first year of the new accountability system which seeks to offer a more complex and holistic view of the performance of school districts and individual campuses. In this transition year, there are three ratings a district or campus can be issued: Met Standard, Improvement Required, or Not Rated. All schools in the PISD earned the highest rating of Met Standard.
Campuses may also receive additional “Distinction” recognition for successful student progress, reading and English language arts (ELA), and math. Paris High School is on a unique list of only 152 high schools in the state of Texas to earn “Distinction” designations in all three categories. Paris Junior High is one of 88 schools to receive “Distinctions” in student progress and reading and ELA. Crockett Intermediate earned “Distinctions” in student progress and math, which only 93 schools in the state accomplished.
“We are pleased with our district’s performance,” states Superintendent Paul Jones. “The hard work of our students, faculty, and staff is paying off. We look forward to attaining greater student achievement throughout the upcoming school year.”
