2014 school accountability ratings released

Amarillo, TX - The Texas Education Agency released their 2014 school accountability ratings that measure if schools are meeting the state's education standards.

Schools across the Panhandle scored exceptionally well on the rating scale that determines if a school meets standards or requires improvement.

The accountability rating measures a school's performance by looking at four basic areas: student achievement on the STARR test, student progress from year to year, if a school is closing performance gaps in regards to economic and ethnic barriers, and the post-secondary readiness of their students.

Out of 63 school districts in the Panhandle, only 16 schools did not meet the state's education standards, most of them being elementary schools. 

Here is a list of the schools, and what standards they need to work on.

Elementary Schools:

1. Rolling Hills (River Road ISD) - Student Progress

2. Shamrock (Shamrock ISD) - Closing Performance Gaps

3. White Deer (White Deer ISD) - Student Progress

4. Hart (Hart ISD) - Student Progress and Postsecondary Readiness

5. West Central (Hereford ISD) - Student Progress

6. Higgins (Higgins ISD) - Postsecondary Readiness
