RISD Response to Preliminary State A-F Rating

In 1983, HB 72 created state curriculum standards, a state assessment system and a state accountability system for public schools.  The original intent was to insure all students were achieving basic skills in reading and math.  The original intent has evolved into a current system that is rating and ranking students and schools based on college readiness/advanced standards measured by the state assessment STAAR.  Neither higher education nor the workforce considers the STAAR assessments as a valid indicator for post-secondary success.

Most recently, in 2015, the 84th Texas Legislature enacted HB 2804 which in turn established an A-F rating system for public school districts and campuses.  This new system was slated to go into effect for the 2017-2018 school year; however, the Legislature requested a preliminary run based on the 2015-2016 school data.  The Texas Commissioner of Education then chose to make the information public.    The complexities of determining the letter grade for each domain far surpass any grading system used in public schools for reporting student progress.  There is no simple explanation for how the ratings were determined.

The political justification for moving to this system was to provide a performance grade for campuses comparable to the grades received on student report cards. 

The newly developed A-F State Accountability System is NOT an accurate reflection of quality education, dedicated staff, supportive parents and students with a vast array of talents, interests and opportunities.  This system does NOT take into consideration the vast diversity of our state or the available resources for meeting the high expectations required to achieve the desired outcomes.

Redwater ISD does not embrace a rating or ranking of our schools based on a state test administered on one specific date.  Our focus is to provide a quality 21st century education that far exceeds the limited parameters of this state accountability design.  At Redwater ISD, where the vision is to inspire high personal expectations so ALL will experience their full potential and rise above the ordinary, our schools are so much more than one test; our students are so much more than one score!  Life Matters at Redwater ISD.
