Texas Education Agency gave Wylie and Plano school districts high performance ratings on the new A-F grading system.
School districts across Texas received accountability ratings Wednesday, Aug. 15. Wylie Independent School District received an A, as did Plano ISD and eight other districts in Collin County.
The new system gives districts an A-F score based on student achievement, school progress and closing the gap.
Student achievement includes STAAR performance, college, career and military readiness, and graduation rate. School progress monitors academic growth and how it compares to surrounding districts. Closing the gap refers to how different demographics within a school perform.
