Katy ISD has learned that the Texas Education Agency has granted the district’s appeal on behalf of Nottingham Country Elementary, resulting in an elevated accountability rating for the campus from Recognized to Exemplary. Katy ISD filed the appeal in August, requesting that the TAKS mathematics commended performance for a specific student sub-population be recalculated.
The appeal was based on the fact that the status for two students in one subpopulation changed after the submission of the pre-code file, but prior to testing. The original TEA rating was just one student short of Exemplary status.
With Nottingham Country Elementary’s elevated status, Katy ISD now has 19 campuses rated as Exemplary, 26 rated as Recognized and five rated as Acceptable. Katy ISD as a district has been rated as Recognized for four consecutive years.
Katy ISD’s Exemplary campuses for 2010-11 are Alexander Elementary, Exley Elementary, Fielder Elementary, Griffin Elementary, Hayes Elementary, Holland Elementary, Katy Elementary, Kilpatrick Elementary, Nottingham Country Elementary, Pattison Elementary, Rylander Elementary, Schmalz Elementary, Stanley Elementary, Stephens Elementary, Williams Elementary, Winborn Elementary, WoodCreek Elementary, Beckendorff Junior High, and McMeans Jr. High.
