The Marshall Independent School District is excited about their new accountability rating.
Thursday the Texas Education Agency released the district’s “Met Standard” rating for the 2012-2013 school year.
Marshall ISD students met the state standards for Student Achievement, Student Progress, Closing Performance Gaps and Postsecondary Readiness.
MISD Superintendent Dr. Marc Smith said, “Our students met the challenge and our faculty and staff worked extremely hard to bring us to this point. We have accomplished a lot over the past year but we are not satisfied. There is still a lot left to accomplish. We are gaining ground and moving in the right direction.”
Marshall High School, Carver Elementary, William B. Travis Elementary, which are three of the four MISD campuses that were deemed Academically Unacceptable in 2012, met all four indexes in 2013. The fourth school, Marshall Junior High made significant gains and missed meeting the state standard by just one percentage point.
The “Met Standard” rating is the highest mark in the 2013 ratings. It is assigned to districts and campuses that meet performance index targets on all indexes for which they have performance data in 2013.
