Under the new Texas accountability system, a school and school district can only be rated as Met Standard or Needs Improvement. This is a departure from the traditional ratings of Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable and Unacceptable.
“While the names of the ratings have changed, our mission has remained the same, and that is to ensure all students graduate college and career ready,” said Dr. Greg Smith, Superintendent of Schools of the Clear Creek Independent School District. “This transition from TAKS to STAAR has been a herculean effort on the part of our teachers, students, and parents. Yes, the State’s system is confusing, but the simple message to walk away from on this report card is that we are not complacent; we will continue to meet the needs of all children, and raise our own expectations every year. That is the CCISD Way.” …”
