Harlandale ISD receives B grade in 2019 Texas Education Agency new rating system

Harlandale ISD received an overall B letter grade from the Texas Education Agency (TEA) in the agency’s inaugural A-F Accountability Rating System.

The 85th Texas Legislature passed House Bill (HB) 22, establishing three domains for measuring the academic performance of districts and campuses: Student Achievement, School Progress, and Closing the Gaps. Districts and campuses will receive a rating of A, B, C, D, or F for overall performance, as well as for performance in each domain. 

For the 2018-2019 school year, Harlandale ISD received an 86 out of 100 score, which highlights how well the district prepared students for success, both in school and after high school in college, a career, or the military.

The new score shows a significant improvement compared to last year’s C score of 76 out of 100.

“We are very glad to see the continued success of our district,” Harlandale ISD Interim Superintendent Samantha Gallegos said. “I had the opportunity to share the news of our rating with our dedicated educators during our annual Convocation event yesterday, and we look forward to continuing the momentum this new school year.”

In the three domains the TEA used to measure the district, Harlandale ISD received an 84 for Student Achievement, a 90 for School Progress and a 76 for Closing the Gaps.

Two Harlandale ISD schools – Gillette Elementary School and STEM Early College High School – received an A.

“This grade is a testament to the work everyone puts into the district. We will continue to provide opportunities for our students and teachers in order to provide quality instruction,” Gallegos added.

Harlandale ISD is comprised of 23 schools serving approximately 14,000 students.
