The Texas Education Agency released their accountability ratings for all school districts for the 2016-2017 school year. Brazo's High School was the only Waco ISD to improve by meeting standard in 2017.

According to TEA officials, the new A-F system will better serve district officials, parents and students to more accurately depict how various campuses and district are performing.

Leadership and curriculum changes have led to major improvements in one East Texas school district.

All Killeen, Midway, Belton ISD, China Spring and Copperas Cove districts and schools met standard. The designations are based on performance relative to peer campuses.

"Staff members in CCISD have been provided with a number of training sessions focused on the changes being promulgated by the state". Every school in the district received a passing rating from the Texas Education Agency. "Instructional staff routinely participate in the curriculum review process and provide direction and feedback in order to enhance learning opportunities for students".

College View High School, the district's new non-traditional school, just completed its first full year.

Due to failing grades, the TEA had recently tried to take over operations of Hearne ISD but the district fought back, and won.

Hill Country Middle School earned distinctions in social studies, student progress, closing performance gaps and postsecondary readiness.

Each district is expected to earn a target score in each of the four categories, and those scores then indicate whether the district has earned a "met standard" or "did not meet standard" rating.

Out of the 34 campuses that earned distinctions, half were for high science test scores and 16 performed well in the student progress category.

The Marlin Primary Academy was also rated improvement required after falling short in the areas of student achievement, student progress and closing performance gaps.

Gatesville ISD received a 72 in student achievement, a 36 in student progress, a 39 in closing the gap, and a 76 in postsecondary readiness.

Salado ISD received an 83 in student achievement, a 38 in student progress, a 40 in closing the gap, and a 84 in postsecondary readiness.

In 2016, Waco ISD met all standards except for student achievement. We failed Index 3, which means for North Zulch ISD that our economically disadvantaged students did not meet the criteria that TEA mandates.
