Thursday afternoon, officials with the Socorro Independent School District announced the availability of the district’s ‘report cards’ from the State of Texas.
“The Socorro Independent School District is committed to communicating transparently and regularly with all stakeholders to provide valuable information on student performance,” district officials shared. “Team SISD proudly reports on academic progress achieved as a result of outstanding instruction and endless opportunities provided for students to be prepared for college, careers and life.”
The School Report Cards can be found online, by clicking here. A printed copy of the report is available upon request at each school or at the SISD District Service Center.
Required by the Texas Legislature and prepared by the Texas Education Agency, the report is to be shared with the parent or guardian of every child enrolled in a Texas public school.
The report provides information concerning student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR), as well as information on student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures.
For the 2019-2020 school year, due to COVID-19, STAAR assessments were cancelled; therefore, several data points have not been updated, including STAAR and academic growth data.
District officials add that the information contained in the School Report Card is required by state law and is briefly described in the “2019–20 School Report Card Definitions.” The report for each school may or may not have all the information described because the information presented depends on whether the school is an elementary, middle, or high school.
A more complete report about each school and the district, the Texas Academic Performance Report (TAPR), is available via this link.
