The Denton school district and the 10 other districts in the county met accountability standards, according to data released by the Texas Education Agency on Friday.
The state released accountability ratings for all Texas school districts, charters and individuals campuses. The district, schools and charters can receive one of three ratings from the state: "met standard," "met alternative standard" and "needs improvement." The ratings are determined by four performance indicators -- student achievement (STAAR results), student progress, closing performance gap and post-secondary readiness.
The 11 Denton County school districts were among the 90 percent of school districts across the state that received the “met standard” rating.
“These results are one example of the great job that our teachers are doing,” according to a prepared statement from Denton ISD Superintendent Jamie Wilson. “Our district continues to focus on growth of each individual student by working to insure each child is successful.”
