The Texas Education Agency released the 2018-19 accountability ratings for school districts across the state on Aug. 15. Conroe ISD received a B for its work during the 2018-19 school year with its 62,577 students and 59 campuses. Of those 59 schools, our 5 local campuses in The Falls were amongst some of the highest scores.
Overall grades for schools are calculated based on performance in three key areas. TEA takes the higher score between how much students know and can do (Student Achievement) or how much better students are doing than last year or than peers in similar schools (School Progress). They then consider whether performance gaps exist among different groups of students (Closing the Gaps). Here is how the district ranked in each domain:
Student Achievement: B
This rating is based on how much students know and how well they do at the end of the school year. It measures whether students have met grade-level expectations as measured by the STAAR test. It also considers graduation rates and how prepared students are for life after high school. CISD earned 89 out of 100, the same as last year.
School Progress: B
This rating is determined based on how well students do over time and how the school itself is growing. It measures how much better students performed on the STAAR test this year versus last year. It also looks at how much better students are doing academically at the district compared to similar districts. CISD earned 89 out of 100, one point higher than last year.
Closing the Gaps: B
This rating shows how different populations in the student body are performing. It measures the percentage of different groups of students that performed above state goals in four areas. CISD earned 88 out of 100, one point lower than last year.
