The Texas Education Agency (TEA), announced today that United Independent School District, along with 60 other school districts and district charters across the state received a distinction designation for postsecondary readiness as part of their 2018 state accountability rating. The postsecondary readiness distinction is the only distinction designation at the district level under the state accountability system.

Beginning this year, all multi-campus school districts and charters received an accountability rating based on an A–F scale. The TEA announced those ratings on Aug. 15.

Parents are encouraged to visit TXschools.org 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.

The postsecondary readiness distinction takes into account factors such as graduation rates, ACT/SAT participation and performance, Career and Technical Education (CTE) graduates, and dual-credit course completion rates. Districts and district charters earning a rating of ABC or D were eligible for the postsecondary readiness distinction.
