ACCOUNTABILITY 

State Accountability Ratings

State accountability ratings are based on a framework of three domains that are used to evaluate the performance of each public campus and district in the state. The framework includes a range of indicators to calculate a score for each domain and enables a thorough assessment of campus and district effectiveness.
Accountability ratings are based on achieving a target established for each performance domain.
Domain 1: Student Achievement: provides a snapshot of performance across subjects.
Domain 2: School Progress: measures year-to-year student progress by subject and student group.
Domain 3: Closing Performance Gaps: tracks advanced academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students and the lowest-performing racial/ethnic student groups.

A-F letter grades are used to rate the overall performance of districts and campuses.

This year the District is not receiving a rating due to the pandemic. In 2018-2019 school year the District was rated with an overall of a D, the elementary was a rating of F, and the intermediate was not rated since it did not exist that year. Students did participate in the STAAR testing last school year, 2020-2021, and both the elementary and intermediate schools were not rated due to the pandemic but our high school received an acceptable rating. We know that students at Somerville ISD are still behind due to the pandemic. We encourage parents to get involved with our schools, check your child's grades in the parent portal, and stay connected to the school by keeping in contact with teachers.

Somerville ISD believes that schools and districts should be held accountable for providing the highest quality of education for students but we want to encourage parents to use caution when trying to interpret the D rating for the district. This single letter grade is based upon a very complicated system that is not easily calculated nor very transparent. The accountability manual itself has over 214 pages with explanations for each domain and it is extremely complicated to interpret. We have been working on improving our academics and we will continue to work hard to get every student caught up.

We have been focusing on the high school students in making sure they are College, Career, and Military ready before graduation by lining up our CTE classes and offering On-Ramps Courses which will provide students an opportunity to receive college credit.  Our focus for the year will be to provide high-quality instruction for every student in every class. We know we have the systems and staff in place to make the necessary improvements in academics and we will work hard this year to bring these accountability ratings up, but we want the community to know that while SISD understands the importance of accountability ratings; our schools are so much more than one test, and our students are so much more than one score!

Thank you for supporting our schools!

Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR)

The Texas Academic Performance Reports (TAPR) pull together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school and district in Texas every year. Performance is shown disaggregated by student groups, including ethnicity and low-income status. The reports also provide extensive information on school and district staff, programs, and student demographics.
