The Texas Education Agency rated the Arlington ISD Met Standard in its release of ratings under the state 's accountability system, which utilizes four indices student achievement, student progress, closing performance gaps and postsecondary readiness.

District scores improved over 2014-2015 in all four indices and still seem to be very positive with the addition of math this year, which added rigor. When adjusting for the higher passing standard
implemented in 2015-2016, there was a five-point increase in the student achievement index, a three-point increase in the student progress index, a four-point increase in the closing performance
gaps index and a three-point increase in the postsecondary readiness index. There was strong growth in overall achievement and closing the achievement gaps. There were positive gains in almost every index at the six comprehensive high schools.

Individual campuses receive ratings of either Met Standard or Improvement Required and have the ability to earn distinction designations. All schools except two were rated Met Standard Wimbish and Roquemore elementaries. Roquemore Elementary is no longer a campus starting in 2016-2017 as a result of the facilities master plan developed in 2013-2014. Distinction designations have not yet been released; those will be released Sept. 16.

'I am proud of the work of our staff and students that has gone into the progress and success of our district, ' Superintendent Dr. Marcelo Cavazos said. 'I am especially proud of Adams and Berry
elementaries for meeting standard this year after being rated Improvement Required last school year.

With the higher standards this year, the improvements from throughout the district are outstanding and validate the efforts of our strategic plan. '
