State Accountability Rating System
The Texas Education Agency releases accountability summaries for all Texas schools. In order to receive "Met Standard," a school or district must equal or exceed TEA standards on four indices: Student Achievement, Student Progress, Closing Performance Gaps and Post Secondary Readiness.
For the fourth year in a row, Abernathy ISD, and all of it's campuses received the rating of Met Standard on the more rigorous state accountability system. In addition, TEA releases seven distinction designations.
Abernathy Middle School received 5 of the 7 distinctions. AMS earned the following distinctions:
- Academic Achievement in ELA/Reading
Texas Academic Performance Report
The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) pull together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas every year. Performance is shown disaggregated by student groups, including ethnicity and low income status. The reports also provide extensive information on school and district staff, programs, and student demographics.
Federal Accountability-Federal Report Cards
Abernathy ISD parents can review Federal Report Cards for the state, District and each of our campuses by visiting the Texas Education Agency website.
2013-14 HB 5 Community Engagement Survey
In addition to the accountability results based on learner assessment data, every Texas school district under the requirements of House Bill 5 was required beginning in the 2013-2014 school year, to evaluate each campus and the district as a whole on nine factors and assign ratings of Exemplary, Recognized, Acceptable, or Unacceptable in each of those factors based on district developed rubrics. These factors and rating comprise the Community and Student Engagement Accountability System (CSEAS).
These ratings allow each district and campus the opportunity to showcase the broad spectrum of services, supports, and activities available to learners and the community as a whole and begin the process of widening the accountability measures beyond standardized assessments.
