Wilson ISD to appeal low TEA rating

The Wilson Independent School District will appeal a recently assigned “D” accountability rating from the Texas Education Agency, according to Jerry Burger, Superintendent.

The TEA released its A-F accountability ratings Aug. 15, given to all campuses and school districts in the state.

Wilson received an overall rating of “D,” but Burger said the district would appeal it due to what he feels is an “anomaly” in the mathematics formula for the smaller schools.

The rating system is derived from a set of measurements taken from three domains of work: student achievement, school progress and relative performance. Points are earned through meeting different criteria.

Burger said in the case of Wilson ISD, its enrolment is so small that the number of graduates typically is fewer than 10 students, that it changes how the points are figured.
