The Texas Education Agency (TEA) released the 2018-2019 academic accountability ratings for school districts across the state last week, with each district and campus receiving a rating based on an A through F system. 

“I began the fight to establish A-F ratings in our schools as a senator, in 2013, when I served as Chair of the Senate Education Committee because I knew district and campus ratings would provide educators with the information they need to help transform our schools and ensure that more students are successful. Ratings also provide transparency to help parents make sound decisions for their child. Some may not remember that there was a great deal of opposition to establishing A-F ratings in Texas, but we got the legislation passed and today — thanks to the hard work of our teachers, administrators, and staff — Texas is reaping the benefits,” Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick said in a statement.
