SMSD receives report card results

By Karen Daniels

The Texas Education Agency annually reports on our States schools’ accountability and performance ratings for each school and each district. These results are based on a range of information such as: results of TAKS tests, results of Student Success Initiative, attendance rates, drop out rates, completion rates, and college readiness. The TEA rates schools in the following categories: Exemplary; Recognized; Academically Acceptable; Academically Unacceptable; or Not Rated – due to other issues such as integrity or data.

At Monday night’s board meeting it was discussed that as a district, Stafford MSD received the rating of “Academically Acceptable” with a Gold Performance Acknowledgments for: College-Ready Graduates (2010) and Social Studies. Stafford’s Primary and Elementary Schools (Pre-K – Grade 4) received a “Recognized” rating with comparable improvements in Mathematics. Stafford’s Intermediate (Grade 5-6), Middle (Grade 7-8) and High School (Grade 9-12) all received “Academically Acceptable” ratings for the 2010-11 Campus Performance. There was a decrease in the annual drop out rate from 2.0 to 1.8 and increased in math and science performance from the prior year at each of the campuses.

The TEA does not “rank” the schools in an order; however, a non-profit group called “Children At Risk” does. For the past six years, they have comprised a ranking of more than 5,800 campuses based on fourteen criteria such as: completion of advanced placement courses, SAT and ACT scores, attendance and graduation rates, to name a few, to aid parents with more tools to determine their child’s education. Stafford’s High School received the rank of 421 out of 1145 schools; however, their Middle School received a rank of 1073 out of 1793. The Elementary was not ranked.

In other school news, it was brought up and discussed by the board that next year, during the 2012-13 school year, Stafford MSD would have a $400,000 – $600,000 shortfall in lost school revenue due to the closure of Texas Instruments. Hopefully a new company will purchase the property and move in quickly so not to effect the 2013-14 school year, though no company or companies have been announces at this time.

Representatives from Grainger were at the meeting to present five – $1,000 scholarships to be used for Technical Education for the students or teachers on behalf of the Grainger Foundation.
