Engagement Evaluation

Whitehouse Independent School District earned an Exemplary rating on the Community and Student Engagement Evaluation for the 2015-16 school year.

In accordance with House Bill 5, WISD was required to develop and conduct a self-evaluation in nine categories. The categories include: fine arts, wellness and physical education, community and parental involvement, 21st century workforce development programs, second language acquisition programs, digital learning environment, dropout prevention strategies, education programs for gifted and talented students, and compliance with statutory reporting and policy requirements.

As a result of the evaluation, each campus, along with the entire WISD district, received a local accountability system rating. The rating system included exemplary, recognized, acceptable and unacceptable.

In order to evaluate each campus in each of the categories, criteria was developed establishing points or percentages to be awarded for each category. Each school’s result in each category was then calculated for an overall school rating. Campus rating results were as follows: Brown Elementary, Exemplary; Cain Elementary, Exemplary; Higgins Elementary, Exemplary; Stanton-Smith Elementary, Exemplary; Holloway 6th Grade, Exemplary; Whitehouse Junior High, Exemplary; and Whitehouse High School, Exemplary. These results led to an overall Exemplary rating for WISD.

The purpose of the evaluation is to provide school districts with the opportunity to showcase areas of excellence as well as recognize areas that need improvement.
