If school districts had honor rolls, Wylie ISD would be on it.
The Texas Education Agency graded school districts across Texas and accountability ratings were released Wednesday, Aug. 15. Wylie received an A, as did nine other districts in Collin County.
The new system gives districts an A-F score based on student achievement, school progress and closing the gap.
Student achievement includes STAAR performance, college, career and military readiness, and graduation rate. School progress monitors academic growth and how it compares to surrounding districts. Closing the gap refers to how different demographics within a school perform.
