The STAAR test results are in, analyzed, and ONE DISTRICT stands alone in their success. Wylie ISD “significantly beat the state averages.” All of Wylie ISD should be proud of these accomplishments. We are focused, dedicated and driven to student success and the results are proof that the Wylie Way works.
From Sunday’s Dallas Morning News:
“Last week, The News analyzed new data released by the TEA, looking for districts that significantly beat the state averages. For instance, the state’s scores on fifth-grade math went up the equivalent of about one additional correct question over three years. How many districts’ scores went up by roughly two questions better than the state? And which districts had a consistent pattern, showing that modest improvement on more than a few tests?
TEA data includes 551 districts and charter schools in Texas with at least 1,000 students. Only 24 topped the state on at least nine of the 19 tests given consistently over the three years. And only one district with more than 5,000 students is on that list: Wylie, in Collin County.”
Congratulations to our staff, students and parents!!!. And we are not done yet!
