BISD campuses earn numerous Academic Distinctions for 2016
(Bastrop) – The Texas Education Agency released Academic Distinction designations to its 1,200 districts and charter schools across the state. Of the more than 8,600 campuses statewide, numerous campuses in Bastrop ISD earned distinctions in multiple academic areas.
"TEA recently declared that Bastrop ISD and all of its applicable campuses earned Met Standard in the state's accountability and rating system,” said Bastrop Superintendent Steve Murray. “We can now congratulate those campuses for one more reason, for earning academic distinctions in one or more categories.”
Campuses can earn distinctions based on their achievement in specific performance indicators compared to a grouping of 40 campuses. The possible distinctions are:
- Academic Achievement in English Language Arts/Reading
- Academic Achievement in Math
- Academic Achievement in Science
- Academic Achievement in Social Studies
- Top 25% Student Progress
- Top 25% Closing Performance Gaps
- Postsecondary Readiness.
Bastrop High School earned distinctions in social studies and postsecondary readiness. Cedar Creek High School earned distinctions in science and postsecondary readiness. Colorado River Collegiate Academy earned distinctions in all possible areas. Bastrop Middle School earned a science distinction, as did Cedar Creek Intermediate. At the elementary level, Bluebonnet earned distinctions in math and postsecondary readiness, and Cedar Creek earned distinctions in math and top 25% student progress.
“We are proud of the work done by all Bastrop ISD students and staff each and every day, and receiving distinctions of this nature by others simply adds to and validates the pride we already have for the wonderful things going on in our district,” said Murray.
Bastrop ISD is located 35 minutes southeast of Austin and serves nearly 10,000 students from the communities of Bastrop, Cedar Creek, Red Rock, Rockne, Paige and other rural areas of Bastrop County.
