100% of GPISD Schools Meet TEA Standard

Press Release

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) recently released its state testing reports. Grand Prairie ISD and all of our campuses met state standard for student achievement in 2015-2016. Met Standard is the highest rating possible in the state’s accountability system.

The state began administering a state assessment over 30 years ago. Each year, the difficulty of the exam increases as does the passing standard. This year was the most challenging exam with the highest passing standard on a STAAR Test to date.

To receive a Met Standard rating in 2016, three of four indices had to be met: student achievement or student progress, and closing performance gaps and postsecondary readiness.

“I’m proud of our students and staff for the hard work they do,” said Superintendent Dr. Susan Simpson Hull. “The dedicated school teachers in this district continue to amaze me. Their efforts are to be commended.”
