Houston school district rankings: Best schools in the Greater Houston area

The Texas Education Agency handed out school and district grades for the first time since 2019.

HOUSTON — The Texas Education Agency has released its accountability ratings for the state’s school districts and individual campuses for the 2021-2022 school year.

Typically, schools and districts are given an A through F grade, but not this year. No failing grades were passed out. 

This year, schools that received scores lower than 70 received a "not rated" designation, as opposed to an overall "D" or an "F" grade, TEA commissioner Mike Morath said.

A Texas Senate bill created the "not rated" score for this year to allow districts and schools the chance to recover from the pandemic.

The overall grades were measured in three categories: Student achievement, school progress and "closing the gap," which evaluates how goals are being achieved for certain groups of students, such as English learners, special education students and those who are economically disadvantaged.

The ratings were provided for 1,195 school districts and 8,451 campuses across Texas. According to the accountability report, in 2022, 25% of districts and 33% of school campuses increased in letter grades from where they were in 2019.
