Tyler ISD was delighted to accounce that all of its schools received an “academically acceptable” or higher ranking from the TEA in 2008. Nine Tyler elementary schools improved from acceptable to recognized, and two schools received the highest rating: exemplary.
“We are very proud of the hard work and effort of all of our teachers and staff who helped to make this accomplishment possible,” said Tyler ISD Superintendent Dr. Randy Reid. “We know we still have a lot of work ahead of us, but we want to take some time to celebrate our campuses success.”
According to TEA, ratings are given based on student performance on the statewide Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) tests, dropout rates and high school graduation rates. This year, more Tyler schools than ever before achieved the “exemplary” or “recognized” rating.
