More than half of SISD schools earn Academic Achievement DistinctionAll campuses in the Socorro Independent School District and the district as a whole earned a Met Standard rating in the 2013 state accountability ratings, which were released on Aug. 8.
“We’re pleased that all of our schools and the district met the standard which reflects the hard work of our students and teachers,” said Superintendent José Espinoza. “While there remains work to be done in order to ensure every student is achieving at high levels, our results show that rigorous teaching and learning is being accomplished in our school district. I am proud of Team SISD.”
Sixty percent of SISD schools earned Academic Achievement Distinction Designations in Reading/English Language Arts, Mathematics, or Student Progress. Three schools received all three distinction designations.
The new state accountability rating system uses four indices based on student performance on state-mandated tests and graduation rates. The four indices measures student achievement (Index 1), student progress (Index 2), closing performance gaps (Index 3) and post-secondary readiness (Index 4).
SISD rated the highest in Index 1 and Index 4 among the four largest school districts in El Paso County.
