A-F accountability ratings are cause for pride in our Texas public school community
Date Posted: 8/15/2022
ATPE Executive Director Shannon Holmes offers the following statement on the 2022 A-F accountability ratings:
“The 2022 A-F accountability ratings released Monday by the Texas Education Agency are cause for pride in our Texas public school community. In the first A-F ratings release since 2019, 25% of districts and 33% of campuses improved their letter grades, which reflects the tremendous collaboration between all school staff and parents to help students recover from the learning disruptions and emotional ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we continue to believe the success of a campus or district cannot be adequately measured by a letter grade based primarily on a singular test, these 2022 accountability ratings do provide a snapshot into the multifaceted services and support our public schools provide to the children of Texas. Much work remains to be done, but these results are a positive sign. We must keep our eye on the ball and support the public schools that serve all children and are the backbone of our communities.”
