It’s Official – RISD Recognized Again

The Texas Education Agency today confirmed that Richardson ISD has earned a Recognized rating for 2010 under the Texas accountability system. This is the fifth consecutive year RISD has earned the rating. RISD is the largest, most diverse district in Texas to have achieved Recognized status for five consecutive years.

Every RISD campus received a rating of Exemplary (42 schools) or Recognized (11 schools).

“I extend sincere congratulations and gratitude to our teachers, students and staff, whose commitment, hard work and talent have spurred RISD’s continued academic growth,” said Superintendent Dr. Kay Waggoner. "I thank our Council of PTAs, volunteers, taxpayers and community partners for their ongoing support. Successful public schools are an important part of any strong community, and the children of our district benefit from and appreciate the passionate efforts of the thousands of people who support them."

Commended rates, which measure the percentage of students passing TAKS at the mastery level, again rose for most students in most subjects.

“Our continued success under the state accountability system is a significant and well-recognized indicator of RISD’s success, but it is not the only measure,” said Waggoner. “As with every year, we’re evaluating all available indicators to determine our strengths and opportunities for continuous improvement.”

TEA will publicly announce all district and school ratings on Friday afternoon, July 30. For additional information, please visit the Texas Education Agency website at tea.state.tx.us.
