Area Schools And Districts Fall Short Of Federal Standards, Face Sanctions

(August 8, 2012)—A number of Central Texas schools and school districts face sanctions for failing to meet federal adequate yearly progress standards this year.

The Texas Education Agency released lists Wednesday of individual campuses and districts that failed to meet the AYP standards in the same areas for two consecutive years or more for math, reading, attendance, or graduation rates.

None of the major school districts in Central Texas met the AYP this year and Belton, Copperas Cove, Killeen, Temple and Waco all face sanctions.

Waco High School missed the standards in reading, math and graduation rate for a sixth straight year and Waco’s Cesar Chavez Middle School missed the standards in math and reading for a fourth straight year.

"It is a state of urgency for us, we're in critical analysis mode," said Jennifer Womack, Waco ISD's assistant superintendent for accountability.

In all of Central Texas, Waco High is the only school to fail federal standards for more than 4 consecutive years.

Statewide, nearly half of public and charter schools failed to meet the federal accountability standards, a sharp increase that Texas education officials attributed to tougher passing standards.

The Texas Education Agency said Wednesday that 44.2 percent of schools statewide met the adequate yearly progress standards while 47.8 percent, or 4,080 total schools across Texas that fell short of them.

When broken down by school district, the figures are even bleaker.

Just 339 Texas public and charter school districts, or 27.6 percent, met the AYP while 71.4 percent did not.

Those tallies were down dramatically from 66 percent of school campuses and 50 percent of districts overall in Texas that met AYP standards in 2011.
