State Accountability Ratings
La Vernia ISD was assigned an overall state accountability rating of “B” (89 on a 100 point scale) by the Texas Education Agency for 2018.
Parents are encouraged to visit https://txschools.gov/ to view online report cards designed to be useful tools in seeing how a school or school district is doing in different areas. The report cards spotlight specific strengths, in addition to any challenges, that can assure the needs of all students are being met. Parents can search by district or school name and compare that district’s or school’s performance to others in their area.
Districts and campuses receive a rating based on performance in three areas:
- Student Achievement measures what students know and can do by the end of the year. It includes results from state assessments across all subjects for all students, on both general and alternate assessments, College, Career, and Military Readiness (CCMR) indicators (such as AP/IB, SAT and ACT results), and graduation rates.
- School Progress measures how much better students are doing on the STAAR test this year versus last year and how much better students are doing academically relative to schools with similar percentages of economically disadvantaged students.
- Closing the Gaps looks at performance among student groups, including various racial/ethnic groups, socioeconomic backgrounds and other factors.
Seventy percent of the accountability rating is based on the better of Student Achievement or School Progress (whichever is better is the only performance measure counted). The remaining 30 percent is based on performance in the Closing the Gaps area. To learn more about the A–F accountability system, visit https://tea.texas.gov/A-
While district ratings are based on an A–F scale, the 2018 rating labels for individual campuses continued under the Met Standard, Met Alternative Standard or Improv
ement Required labels. The A–F rating labels will be applied to campuses beginning in August 2019.
