ROISD earns a B+ rating by TEA

Red Oak ISD earned a B+ rating from the Texas Education Agency, improving two points from an 86 to an 88* for the 2018-19 school year.

“We are very proud of the continued improvements in Red Oak ISD student achievement,” stated Interim Superintendent Ann Dixon. “The district continues to make strides towards the A rating and, more importantly, our students showed gains in about 90% of tested categories.”

Overall district performance details in the three categories:

  • 89 in student achievement (last year 86)
  • 88 in school progress (last year 79)
  • 84 in closing the gaps (last year 85)

The district student achievement score of 89 includes:

  • 82 in STAAR Performance
  • 92 in College, Career and Military Readiness
  • 95 in Graduation Rate

These scores are based on several factors and compared to state rates. For instance, STARR scores factor in Masters, Meets and Approaches student scores, while CCMR includes AP/IB exams, TSI, college courses, dual credit, and industry certifications. Graduation Rate scores compare starting 9th graders to graduation rates over 4, 5, or even 6 years.

In addition to academics, districts are scored on financial integrity through the FIRST rating which has 15 indicators. Red Oak ISD scored 84 - Above Standard.

This year campuses received letter grades for the first time. Red Oak ISD campuses saw improvements over last year’s scores on five campuses, and one remained even. Overall, schools earned 5 Bs and 2 Cs. Russell P. Schupmann Elementary saw tremendous gains and jumped from a 67 to an 87 this year.

Campus Ratings:

  • Eastridge Elementary: B – 89
  • Red Oak Elementary: C – 77
  • Wooden Elementary: B – 83
  • Shields Elementary: C – 78
  • Schupmann Elementary: B – 87
  • Red Oak Middle School: B – 80
  • Red Oak High School: B – 85

In addition, campuses earned twelve distinctions this year. Distinctions are earned based on scoring in the top quartile of a state assigned comparison group. Comparable schools are selected from across the state and usually do not include neighboring schools or even schools within the district.

  • Eastridge Elementary earned 5: ELA/Reading, Math, Academic Growth, Postsecondary Readiness, Closing the Gaps
  • Red Oak Elementary earned 1: Science
  • Schupmann Elementary earned 2: Academic Growth, Closing the Gaps
  • Red Oak Middle School earned 1: Math
  • Red Oak High School earned 3: Math, Science, Social Studies

“We are very proud of our gains and our students’ response to rising expectations,” stated Dr. Dixon. “Our campus leaders and administrators continue to review data, daily, and we will scrutinize those areas that need to be addressed. The goal, of course, is to see student success across the board and, by state measurement standards, earn As in all categories. We will continue to put the vast majority of our resources directly into students’ learning.”
