Districts also get an overall rating. 1,195 out of the 1,207 school districts in Texas were evaluated, with the following rankings:
- 'A' Districts - 33.1%
- 'B' Districts - 54%
- 'C' Districts - 9.4%
- 'Not Rated' Districts - 3.5%
The TEA’s ratings are determined by scores in three categories: STAAR test scores, improvement in those scores, and the education of disadvantaged students.
TEA Ratings for Killeen, Temple, Belton School Districts
While there were several at the top of the rankings, some Central Texas schools have room for improvement in their scores. Districts and schools that would have rated a 'D' or 'F' were labeled 'Not Rated' for 2022. Before the pandemic, the A-F grading system was used, but now TEA has graded districts on a A-C rating scale for the current scores.
Belton, Salado, and Copperas Cove all received a 'B' rating. Both Killeen and Temple school districts were rated 'C' overall for the school year. Marlin ISD had their highest ranking in ten years, raising their score by 30 points and going from a 'F' to a 'B', according to KWTX.
