Carroll ISD Earns TEA Post-Secondary Distinction for the Fifth Straight Year

Carroll ISD is one of only five districts in the state to earn the Texas Education Agency’s Postsecondary Readiness Distinction every year it’s been a part of the state’s accountability system.

Commissioner of Education Mike Morath announced today that 61 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. Those ratings were announced by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) 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 A, B, C or D were eligible for the postsecondary readiness distinction.

Carroll ISD, Kerrville ISD, Los Fresnos CISD, Sharyland ISD, and South Texas ISD earned the postsecondary distinction for the fifth consecutive year. These school districts have earned the distinction every year it has been part of the state accountability system.
