We’re kicking off the new school year with some joyful news! Earlier today, the Texas Education Agency released its 2022 School Accountability Ratings. We are proud to announce that six KIPP Texas schools received 100% of distinctions for which they were eligible, 30 schools earned at least one distinction designation, and 75% of our 56 rated schools received an A or B rating! KIPP Texas Public Schools as a network received an overall B rating!
The Texas Education Agency evaluates school performance according to three domains:
Student Achievement evaluates performance across all subjects for all students, on both general and alternate assessments; College, Career, and Military Readiness indicators; and graduation rates.
School Progress measures district and campus outcomes in two areas: the number of students that grew at least one year academically (or are on track) as measured by STAAR results and the achievement of all students relative to districts or campuses with similar economically disadvantaged percentages.
Closing the Gaps uses disaggregated data to demonstrate differentials among racial/ethnic groups, socioeconomic background, and other factors.

*Schools with a rating of A, B, or C are eligible to earn distinctions for achievement in areas based on performance relative to a group of schools with similar size, grade levels, and student demographics.
For 2022, distinction designations are awarded in seven areas:
Academic Achievement in English Language Arts/Reading; Academic Achievement in Mathematics; Academic Achievement in Science; Academic Achievement in Social Studies; Comparative Academic Growth; Comparative Closing the Gaps; and Postsecondary Readiness (district and campus).
