Whitehouse Independent School District

District Accountability

District Accountability

For the third consecutive year, under the new state accountability standards, Whitehouse Independent School District has received the highest score possible, a “Met Standard,” according to results released by the Texas Education Agency.

Under this new accountability system, districts and schools receive one of two ratings: “Met Standard,” or “Improvement Required.” The system, which essentially takes a pass-fail approach, is based on four index measures: results from the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR), year-to-year student progress, closing performance gaps for low-performing student groups, and college and career readiness at graduation.

Each WISD campus also received an individual rating and earned Academic Distinctions for academic achievement in seven areas.

Brown Elementary received a “Met Standard” overall. The campus also earned Academic  Distinctions in four areas: Reading/English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Top 25% Student Progress.

Cain Elementary earned a “Met Standard” rating and Academic Distinctions in five areas: Reading/English Language Arts, Mathematics, Top 25% Student Progress, Top 25% Closing Performance Gaps, and Postsecondary Readiness.

Higgins earned a “Met Standard” rating and Academic Distinctions in five areas: Reading/English Language Arts, Mathematics, Top 25% Student Progress, Top 25% Closing Performance Gaps, and Postsecondary Readiness.

Superintendent, Dr. Chris Moran commented, “the state accountability system is one of several measures we use to determine our academic progress as a district. We are very proud of the distinctions earned by the campuses and for the effort our instructional staff makes to provide the very best for our students. Kudos to the real heros, our classroom teachers, who serve their students faithfully and to our campus administrators and support staff. This recognition from TEA is validation we are doing so many things well in WISD. We will celebrate these successes and continue to strengthen the Whitehouse academic program for the benefit of every student.”
