Pasadena ISD has earned a “Met Standard” designation from the Texas Education Agency (TEA), which recently released the 2016 accountability reports.
Each of Pasadena ISD’s 61 rated campuses earned the “Met Standard” designation.
“There is so much to be proud of in Pasadena ISD,” Dr. DeeAnn Powell, Pasadena ISD school superintendent said. “We are proud of our students and staff who work hard every day to meet and exceed the standards set by the state. This accomplishment is one more example of our success.”
The 2016 ratings are based on a system that uses a range of indicators to provide greater detail about the performance of a district or charter and individual campuses throughout the state. The performance index framework includes four areas:
- Student Achievement – Provides a snapshot of performance across all subjects
- Student Progress – Measures year-to-year student progress by subject and student group
- Closing Performance Gaps – Emphasizes the academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students and the lowest performing racial/ethnic student groups
- Postsecondary Readiness – Emphasizes the importance of earning a high school diploma that provides students with the foundation necessary for success in college, the workforce, job training programs or the military
In order for a campus or school district to earn the Met Standard designation, they must meet the target on either Index 1 or 2 and meet the targets on Index 3 and 4.
Campuses that receive an accountability rating of Met Standard are also eligible for distinction designations. Distinction designations are awarded to campuses based on achievement on performance indicators compared to a group of 40 campuses of similar type, size and student demographics.
Distinction designations will be publicly released by mid-September.
