Staff Development Days for 2017-2018
The Texas Education Agency released the accountability ratings for Texas public schools on Tuesday, August 15, 2017. The TEA website www.tea.texas.gove/2017accountability.aspx provides 2017 Accountability Rating System data for Texas public school districts and campuses.
As a district, Clarksville ISD “met standard” at all levels. Clarksville Middle High School received the rating of “improvement required” due to not meeting one standard related to achievement in social studies and science scores at the middle school level.CMHS met or exceeded the standard scores in math, reading, and writing while they also exceeded the post-secondary readiness target. Cheatham Elementary School “met standard” on all required levels. Additionally, CES earned four of six possible “distinction designations.” The distinctions were awarded due to outstanding growth in the areas of reading/English language arts academic achievement, math academic achievement, top 25 percent student progress, and post-secondary readiness criteria. Kudos to the hard work and dedication of our staff, students, and parents!
Rest assured, while we are celebrating the “met standard” achievements as well as the “distinction designation awards” we are solving the challenge of “improvement required.” As with every year, we diligently pursue what changes must be made to ensure that CISD students are successful in all areas. Our CISD staff members are dedicated to student learning and effective teaching while working tirelessly to ensure clearly outstanding achievements in all areas.
