McAllen ISD earns state’s highest mark in accountability ratings

McAllen ISD has earned an ‘A’ from the state of Texas!
The Texas Education Agency released results to all school districts Tuesday, August 14, and McAllen ISD was awarded the state’s highest grade.
“This result is the culmination of years of hard work,” Superintendent J.A. Gonzalez, Ed.D., said. “All our teachers, students, staff and parents have contributed to this outstanding achievement. We also appreciate the leadership of our School Board of Trustees. They should all be proud.”
The 85th Texas Legislature passed House Bill (HB) 22, establishing three domains for measuring the academic performance of districts and campuses. These are:
  • Student Achievement
  • School Progress (broken down into Academic Growth and Relative Performance)
  • Closing the Gaps

    Districts receive a rating of A, B, C, D, or F for overall performance, as well as for performance in each domain.
