Texas Education Agency started grading Texas schools on an A-F scale in 2018. The grades are intended to represent students’ academic performance, based on standardized test scores and other factors such as graduation rates.

The three categories for the rating are student achievement, school progress and “closing the gaps.”

Richardson ISD received a “B” rating with a score of 88, the same score it received last year. Currently, these ratings are preliminary because schools and districts have a chance to contest the grades.

RISD has 9 A-rated schools, 23 B-rated schools, 17 C-rated schools and 4 D-rated schools. The scores were posted Aug. 15, and you can see how any school or school district did here.
