Huffman ISD receives highest possible rating from TEA

 

Huffman ISD is proud to announce that the district and all campuses received the highest possible rating under the 2015 Texas Education Agency Accountability Ratings system. Our “Met Standard” rating is the result of hard work mixed with a cupful of “grit to succeed” from our staff and students. We are #HuffmanProud!

The 2015 ratings are based on a system that uses a range of indicators to provide greater detail about the performance of a district or charter and individual campuses throughout the state. The performance index framework includes four areas:

 

  • Student Achievement – Provides a snapshot of performance across all subjects
  • Student Progress – Measures year-to-year student progress by subject and student group
  • Closing Performance Gaps – Emphasizes the academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students and the lowest performing racial/ethnic student groups
  • Postsecondary Readiness – Emphasizes the importance of earning a high school diploma that provides students with the foundation necessary for success in college, the workforce, job training programs or the military
