Local News

Report cards won’t be out for students for a few more weeks, but Texas school districts are getting their letter grades from the Texas Education Agency’s new rating system for the previous school year.

Each school and district’s score are based on three subcategories: student achievement, progress and closing the gaps.

The third category also correlates with the Federal Accountability System under the Every Student Succeeds Act.

Overall, the Wichita Falls Independent School District received a “C.” Two “Cs” for student achievement and school progress And a “D” under the closing gaps category.

14 WFISD campuses met standard across the board. That includes all three high schools and nine elementary schools, including Cunningham, Fain, Fowler and Franklin. Five WFISD campuses, Booker T. Washington, Burgress, Crockett, Haynes and Lamar Elementaries met the standard, but the TEA suggested improvements in one area.

Kirby Middle School was the only school that needed improvement in all three categories. Last year, there were four categories and Kirby only failed three.

As for other districts across Texoma, Archer City as a district received “As” across the board. Henrietta, Iowa Park and Electra got “Bs” in all categories from the TEA.
