Posted Date: 08/17/2017

AUSTIN – The Texas Education Agency today announced that 3 Region 9 school districts achieved a Met Standard rating in the 2017 state accountability ratings have also received a distinction designation for post-secondary readiness.

The postsecondary readiness distinction – the only distinction at the district level under the state accountability system – 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. The school districts and charters earning a postsecondary readiness distinction in 2017 are as follows:

  • Perrin
  • Quanah
  • Seymour

TEA released the 2017 state accountability ratings for more than 1,200 school districts and charters, as well as more than 8,700 campuses statewide. The ratings revealed that approximately 95 percent of school districts and charters across Texas have achieved the rating of Met Standard.
