first_img Local NewsEducation ECISD test scores show growth; district still trails state ECISD, STAAR logos Ector County Independent School District released scores for the 2018 administration of the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness tests Tuesday and said they show growth in many areas.The district has eight campuses on improvement required status under state accountability regulations. Ector Middle School, Noel and Zavala elementary are in their fifth year. If the campuses don’t come off the list, they will face closure or the Texas Education Commissioner will appoint a board of managers over the whole district.“Of the eight schools that are on the improvement required list, we are hopeful that the majority of them can come off the list based on their preliminary data in student growth. We are very hopeful our schools are going to make it. For most of them, it is down to a few kids that determine if they meet standard or not. A few variables must still be taken into account. For example, students who moved to or from another school or district are included in the results. By August, all of the data released will be final with all variables including removing the results from the disputed online testing that occurred in the spring,” Superintendent Tom Crowe said in a news release.The state results give students a STAAR performance level of masters grade level, meets grade level, approaches grade level or did not meet grade level. Performance labels of masters, meets or approaches indicate the students passed the test.The release said the labels are meant to provide clear, accurate information for parents on how their child is performing, in terms of meeting grade level, the release said.
