Manor ISD jumps two grades in new TEA report card; Local districts have average score

Education

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Each year the Texas Education Agency releases a report card that grades schools and school districts on a variety of factors.

The state measures school districts based on:

  • Student achievement: How much students know and are able to do at the end of the school year
  • School Progress: How students perform over time and how that growth compares to similar schools
  • Closing gaps: How well different populations of students in a district are performing

In Central Texas, some school districts showed larger gains in ranking than others. Manor ISD saw the most significant improvement as it jumped two letter grades from last year, going from a D to a B. Lago Vista ISD also jumped a grade, going from a B to an A. Round Rock ISD dropped a grade from the previous year.
