Mansfield ISD received another ‘A’ rating from the Texas Education Agency (TEA).
The 2019 accountability grade is based largely on performance on state standardized tests and graduation rates. The ratings examine student achievement, student progress, efforts to close the achievement gap and postsecondary readiness.
Mansfield ISD students have consistently outperformed state averages in the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) exams, and MISD is among the top-scoring districts when comparing STAAR results with surrounding and comparison districts.
“We have an amazing community that works together to ensure that students come first,” said Superintendent Dr. Jim Vaszauskas. “I’m proud of the work put in every day by our students, educators and parents, and I’m excited that Mansfield ISD was able to achieve an 'A’ rating for the second consecutive year.”
The TEA provides annual academic accountability ratings to its public school districts, charters and schools.
Last year was the first year school districts received an A through F (A-F) letter grade from the state, and Mansfield ISD received an ‘A’. The 2019 accountability rating includes letter grades for schools as well.
