QISD School Board receives district report card

The Quinlan Independent School District School Board received the state’s report card on the district Monday night at the regular monthly meeting. In addition, the board heard campus improvement reports from directors and principals.

Altogether, board members received more than 200 pages of data to process.

Testing Coordinator Kara Clark delivered the report card that represents the 2017 accountability summary for the school district.

The district and all campuses were rated Met Standard.

The district results showed the district exceeded all four index targets set by the Texas Education Agency (TEA).

Information released by TEA on Friday states, “The public school accountability system in Texas allows for a comprehensive evaluation of district and campus effectiveness by using a framework of four indices that measure the quality of learning from different perspectives.

“Index 1 provides a snapshot of student performance across all subjects;

“Index 2 measures year-to-year student improvement;

“Index 3 emphasizes the academic achievement of certain student groups; and

“Index 4 emphasizes the importance of a high school diploma for success in postsecondary life.

“Additionally, distinction designations highlight achievement in specific areas by those districts and campuses that earn a Met Standard rating. Finally, system safeguards ensure that — in an aggregated district or campus report — substandard performance in one or more areas or by one or more student groups is not disguised by higher performance in other areas or by other student groups.”
