Inspired by its work with the Texas High Performance Schools Consortium, College Station ISD has constructed a meaningful accountability system which measures what the College Station community believes is important.
“The state has given each district an opportunity to rate itself using measures deemed important by individual communities,” CSISD Superintendent Dr. Clark Ealy said. “We are excited about the opportunity to officially use multiple factors to help us evaluate our performance and not just rely solely on standardized test scores.”
Using the CSISD Core Beliefs and Commitments developed by the Board of Trustees, CSISD developed an accountability system that ranks the district and individual campuses using a variety of indicators.
As a part of House Bill 5, each school district is now required to develop a system to evaluate itself and each of its campuses in the following areas:
Wellness and PE
Community and parent involvement
21st century workforce development
Second language acquisition
Digital learning environment
Dropout prevention strategies
Gifted and talented programs
Reporting and policy requirements

Under the new system, three CSISD campuses earned an exemplary rating, while 12 campuses, along with the district, earned a recognized rating.
