The state has recently released the accountability ratings for EISD. Below is a summary of the ratings:
High School – Recognized
Middle School – Exemplary
Intermediate – Exemplary
Primary (paired with Intermediate) – Exemplary
District – Exemplary
This is the first time that EISD has been rated exemplary as a district. These ratings are a reflection of the hard work that our students, staff, parents, and other relatives and friends put into the 2009-2010 school year. No one group can do it by themselves. It takes everyone working together. A special thank you goes to the EISD Board of Trustees for providing the leadership and guidance to make all of this possible.
Also, we received our preliminary Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) report last week. According to the preliminary report, all of our campuses and the district as a whole met AYP for the 2009-2010 school year. While this is a preliminary report, I do not believe that there will be any change in the final report.
Football, volleyball, cross-country, and band all got started yesterday. Overall, we had good numbers in all of these activities.
