Mathis ISD Earns “Met Standard” TEA 2016 Rating
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) accountability rating for Mathis ISD for 2016 is “Met Standard”. The TEA issued its report card for school districts on August 15 reporting 94 percent of all school districts “met standard”.
The TEA issues two scores for district: “met standard” or “improvement required”. The four indicators are “student achievement”, a snapshot of performance across all subjects; “student progress”, a measure of academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students and the lowest performing student groups; “closing performance gaps”, a measure of the progress of economically disadvantaged students, and “postsecondary readiness”, the expectation that a high school diploma provides students with the foundation necessary for success in college, in the workforce, in job training programs, and/or in the military. The “postsecondary readiness” score comprises student STAAR scores, the graduation rate score, and the graduation plan score.
Mathis High School earned a “met standard” rating in all four categories: student achievement, student progress, closing performance gaps, and postsecondary readiness.
Mathis Middle School was rated “improvement required” and met the standard in two measures: student progress, and in postsecondary readiness.
Mathis Intermediate School earned a “met standard” rating in three measures: student progress, closing performance gap, and postsecondary readiness. The Intermediate School students begin taking STAAR exams in the third grade. The school earned a “Distinguished” rating in math.
Mathis Elementary School comprises grades Pre-K through second grade. The performance rating assigned to Mathis Elementary is paired with the score for Mathis Intermediate School because it is the feeder school to Mathis Intermediate.
