Fort Worth ISD’s Waverly Park and Worth Heights Elementary Schools have earned all the applicable distinction designations for a single school under the 2018 accountability system, according to an announcement made today by the Texas Education Agency.
Both schools obtained a Met Standard rating and earned designations for academic achievement in mathematics, science, English language arts/reading, ranking among the top 25 percent in comparative academic growth and comparative closing the gaps and postsecondary readiness. The two schools are among more than 400 Texas schools earning all possible distinctions for the 2018 accountability ratings.
“Earning one or several campus-level distinctions is notable and should be applauded by a community as an outstanding achievement,” said Mike Morath, Commissioner of Education, in a statement released by the TEA, Tuesday, August 28. “For a school to earn every potential distinction applicable to their campus is difficult, but a reflection of some truly amazing work by our educators.”
Each school is compared to 40 other schools “of similar type, size and student demographics” when determining distinction designations, according to the TEA.
