Accountability Ratings and Reports
The Texas Education Agency produces annual accountability ratings for Texas school districts and schools. Starting in 2018, an A-F scale was applied to districts and in 2019 schools also received letter grades.
In 2019 annual accountability ratings released by the Texas Education Agency, Dripping Springs ISD received an “A” rating for the second consecutive year (numerical score was 91). The rating system was implemented in 2018; last year only districts received letter grades Dripping Springs High School and Sycamore Springs Middle School were assigned “A”s; Dripping Springs Middle School and all four DSISD elementary schools received “B”s.
The state ratings are determined by three factors: Student Achievement, School Progress, and “Closing the Gaps.” Student Achievement is measured solely by STAAR test results at the elementary and middle school level. College, career and military readiness as well as graduation rate are factored in for high schools. School Progress measures academic growth and relative performance on STAAR tests. Closing the Gaps looks at multiple factors (academic achievement, federal graduation or growth status, English language proficiency, and school quality or student success) for all students and also for several student sub-groups.Complete information on the state accountability results can be found at: txschools.org.
In addition to state accountability ratings, Dripping Springs ISD shares Federal Report Cards for the state, the district, and each of the district's campuses; these also are available on the Texas Education Agency (TEA) website.
