Commissioner of Education Mike Morath announced in December that the 2016–17 School Report Cards (SRC) are now available on the Texas Education Agency website.

Designed to inform parents and guardians about a school’s characteristics and achievements, the School Report Card combines parts of other recently released accountability reports to provide a variety of campus-level information concerning student and campus performance.

The School Report Card includes the following information for each campus in Texas: 2017 state academic accountability rating, campus distinction designations, attendance rates, enrollment figures,  dropout rates, class size averages, State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) Results, ACT/SAT results and per-student financial expenditures.

Local report card highlights

Pleasanton ISD, Jourdanton ISD, Poteet ISD, Charlotte ISD and McMullen County ISD all received a rating of Met Standard for 2017, which is the highest level of accountability that can be reached.

The four areas that are measured are: Student Achievement, Student Progress, Closing Performance Gaps and Postsecondary Readiness.

All of these campuses achieved a rating of Met Standard, with the exception of  Pleasanton Elementary School and Pleasanton Primary School, which received a rating of Improvement Required.
