8 local school districts adopt resolutions opposing new A-F scoring system

Nearly 300 school districts in Texas have adopted resolutions opposing the state's new A-F school rating system for public school districts.

Starting with the 2017–18 school year, the Texas commissioner of education will label each public school district and campus with a rating in the form of an A–F letter grade to comply with House Bill 2804, passed by the 84th Texas Legislature in 2015.

Local school districts opposing the system include, Brenham ISD, Bryan ISD, College Station ISD, Huntsville ISD, Madisonville CIS, North Zulch ISD, Snook ISD and Waller ISD.

The Texas Association of School Administrators says it believes Texas students would be better served by a comprehensive community-based accountability system that looks beyond high-stakes, multiple-choice tests to meaningful assessments that have value for students, parents, and teachers, as well as measures what each community deems important in promoting college and career readiness.
