Aug 15, 2017 | Community Relations
Hubenak and Ray elementary schools earned all six of the possible Distinction Designations for elementary schools in the Texas Education Agency’s Accountability ratings. Approximately five percent of Texas schools received this honor.

Austin, Campbell, Dickinson and Frost elementary schools earned five of the possible six Distinction Designations, placing them in a distinguished group of approximately 10 percent of Texas schools.

Distinction designations are awarded to campuses based on achievement in performance indicators relative to a group of 40 campuses of similar type, size and student demographics. The number of potential distinction designations varies depending on campus grade levels and type.

Up to seven distinction designations can be earned: Academic Achievement in English Language Arts/Reading; Academic Achievement in Mathematics; Academic Achievement in Science; Academic Achievement in Social Studies; Top 25 Percent: Student Progress; Top 25 Percent: Closing Performance Gaps; and Postsecondary Readiness. 

“Amazing work takes place in classrooms across our state every school day, but especially on these campuses where every possible distinction has been earned,” said Commissioner of Education Mike Morath.
