The Texas Education Agency (TEA) notified New Braunfels Independent School District on Aug. 14 that all of the campuses met the 2019 accountability standards and the campuses were awarded a total of 30 distinctions. NBISD doubled the overall number of distinctions earned this year from 15 to 30.

 

For the first year, all of the campuses were officially awarded a letter grade under the state’s news accountability system with a majority of the schools receiving an A or B. Only one campus received a C and one campus received a D.

 

At the district level, an overall letter grade is also assigned based on the performance of all of the campuses combined. NBISD’s overall score increased to 91 from a score of 86 last year. The final rating given to NBISD this year was a B even though the overall score is an A. This is due to a capped score of 89 for any school district that has at last one school receiving a D or F in the Closing the Gaps domain.  

 

Ratings are issued in three separate domains – Student Achievement, School Progress and Closing the Gaps – with one overall rating. According to the 2019 Accountability Summary issued to NBISD, the district earned the following scores:

 

Student Achievement (Domain 1) = 91

Student Progress (Domain 2) = 87

Closing the Gaps (Domain 3) = 85

“We saw great improvements from last year and are celebrating those achievements,” said Dr. Victoria Pursch, assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction. “We know that some improvements will need to be made in certain areas and are making it a priority to ensure the success of every student, every day.”
