Central texas accountability ratings
The state standard to earn an exemplary rating requires that at least 90 percent of a district’s or school’s students pass the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills, that 95 percent of high school students either graduate on time or continue high school for a fifth year and that a district have an annual middle school dropout rate of .8 percent or less. However, the Texas Education Agency has allowed districts and campuses to increase their ratings by one level using special measures or exceptions. Central Texas schools that met the absolute standard for an exemplary rating are listed below with asterisks beside their names.
