NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Nacogdoches ISD has received some good news from the Texas Education Agency earlier this month.

The state agency notified NISD officials that the school district’s accountability rating for the 2016-17 school year has gone from “improvement required” to “met standards.”

“TJR is out of IR, and the district is out of IR,” said Nacogdoches ISD Superintendent Sandra Dowdy. “Carpenter and Fredonia made gains, and we expect them to be out next year, but it did not happen this year.”

 Last year, Nacogdoches ISD was not among the almost 94 percent of public school districts in Texas that met the state’s minimum education standards.

In a previous East Texas News story, Dowdy said NISD missed the state index target of 60 by two points.

When the TEA’s 2015-16 accountability report was released in August of 2016, it showed that Nacogdoches ISD met standards in student progress and post-secondary readiness. The district did not meet the state’s standards in student achievement and closing performance gaps.
