Mumford ISD top 3 percent in the state
The Texas Education Agency recently released the 2014 state accountability system ratings for more that 1,200 school districts, and more than 8,500 campuses. Mumford ISD was one of only twenty-six school districts to receive a distinction designation for postsecondary readiness that puts Mumford among the top 3 percent of the best performing schools throughout the state.
In addition Mumford High School and Elementary Met Standard. Mumford High School received distinction designation for Academic Achievement in Reading/ELA, Mathematics, Social Studies, Top 25 Percent Closing Performance Gaps, and Postsecondary Readiness. Mumford Elementary received distinction designation for Academic Achievement in Reading/ELA, Mathematics, Top 25 Percent Closing Performance Gaps, and Postsecondary Readiness.
The 2014 ratings are based on a system that uses various indicators to provide greater detail on the performance of a district and individual campuses throughout the state.
The performance index framework includes four areas:
• Student Achievement--Provides a snapshot of performance across all subjects.
• Student Progress--Measures year-to-year student progress by subject and student group.
• Closing Performance Gaps--Tracks advanced academic achievement of economically disadvantaged students and the lowest performing racial/ethnic student groups.
• Post-secondary Readiness--Emphasizes the importance of earning a high school diploma that provides students with the foundation necessary for success in college, the workforce, job training programs, or the military.
Mumford ISD Superintendent, Pete J. Bienski, Jr. states, “I would like to thank our staff for their dedication and hard work. I am extremely proud of the great staff we have, they have high expectations and willingness to put in the extra effort to be successful. I also want to thank the parents and our outstanding School Board for their support and cooperation.”
