KARNES CITY – Trustees of the Karnes City Independent School District (KCISD) reviewed the report of the Texas Education Agency’s 2013 Accountability Summary for the District, during the Sept. 9 regular school board meeting.

The state accountability summary and rating set a performance index report for the areas of student achievement, student progress, closing performance gaps, and postsecondary readiness for the KCISD campuses, individually and as a whole. KCISD and its campuses met above standard in all these areas, according to the report.

“Schools are compared to other schools with similar demographics,” said Superintendent Jeanette Winn of the accountability summary. “We are very pleased with how highly the KCISD campuses ranked within their comparison groups.”

The report and summary showed that the KCISD as a whole had a target score of 50 and scored a 79 in the area of student achievement; had a target score of 21 and scored a 38 in the area of student progress; had a target score of 55 and scored a 72 in the area of closing performance gaps; and had a target score of 75 and scored a 95 in the area of postsecondary readiness.

Roger E. Sides Elementary received a Distinction Designation honor, recognizing that campus’s outstanding achievement in reading/ ELA (English language arts).

Karnes City Junior High also received a Distinction Designation honor in reading/ELA.

Karnes City High School received two Distinction Designations in the areas of reading/ELA, as well as in the Top 25 Percent Student Progress Distinction, placing the high school in the top quartile among its campus comparison groups.

“KCISD and each of its campuses met the standard established by the state in every category,” concluded Winn. “Additionally, Karnes City High School received two Distinction Designations and Karnes City Junior High and Roger E. Sides each received one Distinction Designation. Both the elementary and the junior high were literally only one point away from receiving a second Distinction Designation.”
