Four East Texas school districts make TEA's list of under-performing campuses

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A number of Deep East Texas public school district made the list when the Texas Education Agency released its 2014-2015 Public Education List of under-performing campuses Friday.

For parents with students enrolled at those campuses, the designation provides them the option to transfer their children out of the underperforming school for the 2014-2015 school year. Parents have two options: transferring their children to another school in the same district, or applying for a seat at a school in a neighboring district. Neighboring districts receive extra funding for students outside the district, but they also have the option to decline the transfer application.

The TEA determines a school is under-performing if it meets one of two criteria. The first measure is if a school has more than 50 percent of its students failing any subject area on standardized testing for two of the last three years. The second measure is if a campus received a rating from the state designating the campus as "academically unacceptable" or "improvement required" in either 2011 or 2013.

The TEA requires parents to be notified by under-performing schools about why the school made the list by February 1. Parents can then decide if they would like to make alternative plans for fall enrollment.

The Deep East Texas school districts that made the list include:

  • Alto ISD (Alto Elementary)
  • Crockett ISD (Crockett Elementary, Crockett Junior High, and Crockett High School)
  • Jasper ISD (J.H Rowe Intermediate School, Parnell Elementary, and Jasper High School)
  • Nacogdoches ISD ( Brooks-Quinn-Jones Elementary, Emeline Carpenter Academy of Technology and Science, Thomas J. Rusk Academy of Fine Arts, and Fredonia Elementary)
