Federal and State Accountability Ratings
The state of Texas via the Texas Education Agency (TEA) provides annual academic accountability ratings to its public school districts and schools. Beginning last year, all multi-campus school districts and charters received an accountability rating based on an A–F scale. The Colmesneil Independent School District (CISD) received a letter grade of "B". Districts received a grade or rating based on performance in three areas:
Student Achievement measures what students know and can do by the end of the year. It includes results from state assessments across all subjects for all students, on both general and alternate assessments, College, Career, and Military Readiness (CCMR) indicators, like AP and ACT results, and graduation rates.
School Progress measures how much better students are doing on the STAAR test this year versus last year, and how much better students are doing academically relative to schools with similar percentages of economically disadvantaged students.
Closing the Gaps looks at performance among student groups, including various racial/ethnic groups, socioeconomic backgrounds and other factors.
Seventy percent of the accountability rating is based on the better of Student Achievement or Student Progress (whichever is better is the only performance measure counted in the calculations). The remaining 30 percent is based on performance in the Closing the Gaps area. Here is the link to the state's A-F Letter Grade Accountability website: A-F Resources.

Campus and District Improvement Plans
Campus Improvement Plans (CIP) and District Improvement Plans (DIP) are comprehensive plans that include all of the activities of an LEA/campus. The improvement plan guidance in this document is designed to help develop a targeted plan to address areas of low performance as stated in TEC §39.106 (d) and 19 TAC §97.1071.
