2016 Accountability Rating Information
Keller ISD earned a "Met Standard," the highest rating from the Texas Education Agency's 2016 State District and Campus Accountability Ratings.
This is the fourth consecutive year that schools and districts in Texas have been rated under the STAAR accountability system. Under this system, campuses/districts are assigned one rating based on meeting the target for each performance index.
- Met Standard: Acceptable rating assigned to campuses and districts that meet the target on all indexes for which it has performance data in 2016.
- Met Alternative Standard: Acceptable rating assigned to charter operators and alternative education campuses (AECs) that are evaluated by alternative education accountability (AEA) provisions and meet modified targets on all performance indexes for which they have performance data in 2016.
- Improvement Required: Unacceptable rating assigned to campuses and districts that miss the target on one or more performance indexes.
Campuses and districts statewide administered state assessments throughout the 2015-16 school year. Parents received their students' individual results in August. District and campuses are evaluated using the following four different performance indexes.
- Student Achievement: measures performance based on satisfactory student achievement combined over all subjects for all students.
- Student Progress: measures academic improvement or growth students have made from last year to this year.
- Closing Performance Gaps: emphasizes the academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students and the two lowest performing racial/ethnic student groups.
- Postsecondary Readiness: emphasizes the role of elementary and middle schools in preparing students for the rigors of high school, and the importance of earning a high school diploma that prepares students for success in college, the workforce, job training programs, or the military.
