August 15, 2017: Today, the Texas Education Agency released the 2017 Accountability Summaries, based on standardized testing conducted in the 2016-2017 school year. Each year, schools and school districts are evaluated on four standards; Student Achievement, Student Progress, Closing Performance Gaps and Postsecondary Readiness. In order to receive the “Met Standard” rating, campuses and districts must meet targets on three of those categories.
In the case of Perryton ISD, the district, along with each campus, exceeded the target in all four areas. PISD Assistant Superintendent for Special Programs, Curriculum and Instruction, Keith Langfitt was enthusiastic about the results, “We are extremely pleased with these results. Our administrators, staff and students have worked hard, and these ratings reflect that effort.”
Schools can also earn distinctions for exceptional accomplishment in up to seven areas. Perryton High School earned five distinctions. They were recognized for achievement in English Language Arts/Reading, Science and Social Studies as well as distinctions for Top 25 Percent Student Progress and Top 25 Percent Closing Performance Gaps. Williams Intermediate students and staff attained a distinction in Mathematics. “We continue to see tremendous progress throughout the district and our students can all be proud of their accomplishments.”
