Bandera Independent School District schools and their students are meeting and exceeding state standards according to data compiled by the Texas Academic Performance Reporting system for 2016-2017.

Think of the system as a report card for school districts - with a lot more numbers, percentages and pages than a student brings home every six weeks.

The Texas Education Agency said the reporting system pulls together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school in Texas.

The annual TAPR reports are available in the late fall each year.

Bandera Independent School District schools and their students are meeting and exceeding state standards according to data compiled by the Texas Academic Performance Reporting system for 2016-2017. Think of the system as a report card for school districts - with a lot more numbers, percentages and pages than a student brings home every six weeks.

The Texas Education Agency said the reporting system pulls together a wide range of information on the performance of students in each school in Texas. The annual TAPR reports are available in the late fall each year.

The performance indicators cover results of academic assessments by grade and by subject area, reading proficiency tests in English, annual attendance rates, dropout rates, the percentage of high school students completing advanced courses, college readiness and other academic measures.

The reports also provide extensive information on school and district staffing, programs and student demographics.

During a Nov. 13 special school board meeting, BISD held a public hearing on its TAPR results that highlighted the success reflected in nine distinction designations that all four of the district’s campuses earned.

The report also spotlighted the district’s low annual dropout rates in grades 9-12, college readiness scores for graduates that exceed the state average and college entrance exam scores that exceed both state and national averages.

Gary Bitzkie, the district’s director of curriculum and personnel services, said BISD concluded the year with the financial rating status of Superior and attained the state’s highest academic standard for the 2016-2017 year.

“BISD is proud of the progress of our staff and students reflected in the TAPR report,” Bitzkie said.

In a separate report compiled by the education agency, BISD achieved the rating of Met Standard in academic accountability ratings, as did more than 90 percent of the 1,200 school districts and charter schools evaluated.
