All campuses and the district earned the highest rating, Met Standard in the official 2014 State Accountability Ratings released by the Texas Education Agency.
“We are extremely pleased with our scores,” said Dan Troxell, Ph.D, Superintendent. “We are thrilled to see our students consistently scoring above the state in all subject areas.”
Kerrville ISD and Tivy High School earned all Distinction Designations possible on the 2014 STAAR state accountability testing. KISD is one of only 26 school districts in Texas to earn the Distinction Designation. Fewer than ten percent of all schools in Texas received every Distinction Designation for which they were eligible.
“Earning a distinction is not easy,” said Commissioner of Education Michael Williams. “Any school earning one or more distinctions should be recognized in their community for the outstanding work taking place on that campus.”
“We are absolutely thrilled and honored to earn these Distinctions,” said Dan Troxell, Superintendent. “I congratulate our students, staff, parents and community on this outstanding achievement.”
