BISD reviews quarterly goals

Bryson ISD school board members reviewed the district’s Texas Education Agency 2018-2019 report card and their quarterly report of board adapted goals during their meeting Monday, Jan. 20.

Superintendent Greg London said the school received a B on their TEA report card. However, they received a 73 on their closing the gaps score.

“Just so y’all remember what that closing the gaps are it is our percentage of kids that gets to the meet standard on the (STAAR) test,” London said.

He said the state breaks up to tests scores to approaches grade level, meets grade level and masters grade level.

“Out of all of these tested areas, we were above the state average in three; writing at approaches, science at approaches and then science at meets level,” London said. “So, we got our work cut out for us and we’re a B and we only had three that we were above the state average.”

For the quarterly update, the superintendent graded himself and the district on a one to four scale on each issue which the board felt was important.

Some areas London said he felt he and the district were performing well in were parent/community relations including online communication with the community.
