EDCOUCH- August 15, 2022 - The Edcouch-Elsa ISD is pleased with the release of today’s 2022 A–F accountability ratings for districts and campuses, the first to be issued since 2019, following two years of COVID-related disruption.
Since the last time districts and campuses were rated, Edcouch-Elsa is rated a B. “These results show how much lost ground our staff, administrators, and dedicated teachers have contributed to our students’ post-pandemic recovery,” said superintendent, Dr. Greg Rodríguez. “I am proud of the progress we have made and look forward to continuing our positive trend. We are focused on creating a culture of high expectations, providing strong support, implementing high-quality curriculum, and making an investment in evidence-based professional learning for our teachers and leaders.”
After a year of providing in-person instruction to students, Edcouch-Elsa campuses saw improvements in overall scores with over 27 points in gains across campuses. In the academic growth domain, schools grew students by 22 points. Ruben C. Rodriguez Elementary increased its letter grade to a B from a C and Carlos F. Truan Junior High exited required comprehensive school support status and earned a B rating.
Combined, campuses met ninety-four (94) percent of English Language Arts state target growth indicators.
Ten percent of EEISD students exceeded grade level academic growth expectations, meaning students surpassed expected growth outcomes. Among other celebrations, EEISD campuses earned distinction designations in Academic Achievement in ELA/Reading, Postsecondary Readiness, Comparative Academic Growth, and Comparative Closing the Gaps.
“We know that our schools and students are more than a letter grade on a standardized assessment. We understand that all of our students possess unique, innate talents and skills,” stated Dr. Rodríguez. “We are elated at the progress we have made as a district and know the best is yet to come.”
