White Settlement ISD earned a “B” rating in the 2019 State Accountability Rating System. The Texas Education Agency defines a “B” as recognized performance.
Liberty Elementary earned an "A" rating and four distinctions. The Fine Arts Academy earned a "B" rating and three distinctions. Tannahill Intermediate also earned a "B."
The ratings are based on data in three domains: student achievement (how well students performed on the STAAR); school progress (how much improvement students made from one year to the next or how well they did in relation to comparable campuses); and closing the gaps (how well schools do educating kids in different subgroups, such as those living in poverty, enrolled in special education or of various ethnic backgrounds).
Campuses are eligible for distinction designations for student progress and closing performance gaps based on their scores on Index 2 and Index 3, respectively.
Campuses are also eligible for academic achievement distinction designations in reading/English language arts, math, science, and social studies. Campus distinction designations are based on performance in relation to a comparison group of campuses.
"The staff, students and families in White Settlement ISD continuously work together as a team ... as a family ... to provide the best opportunities for ALL of our kids," said Superintendent Frank Molinar. "We will continue to explore every avenue for our kids to ensure that they truly become the innovators and leaders of tomorrow."
