Borden County Receives Top Marks on State’s New Accountability System

Borden County Receives Top Marks on State’s New Accountability System

The Texas Education Agency released school district ratings last week for each school district in Texas and Borden County received score of “96” out of 100 possible points on the cumulative accountability rating.

Borden County’s 96 rating represents one of the top numbers in all of region 17 and in the entire state.
The new accountability system, created by House Bill 2804, required that districts receive an A-F grading system for the first time in August 2018.
The reason that Borden County received a 96 and not a letter grade is because single campus districts(such as Borden County, Sands, Grady, Hermleigh, Ira, & Westbrook to name a few) are the only districts that don’t receive the letter, only the number. The “96” received by Borden County would certainly constitute an “A” under the criteria applied to the larger districts who did receive a letter.

According to the TEA website a schools rating is based on:
• Student Achievement: STAAR tests, grades 3-11, administered across all subjects, College, Career and Military Readiness indicators, such as AP & ACT results, as well as graduation rates
• School Progress: measures how much better students are doing on the STAAR test this year versus last year, and how much better students are doing academically relative to schools with similar percentages of economically disadvantaged students
• Closing the Gaps: looks at performance among student groups, including various racial/ethnic groups, socioeconomic backgrounds and other factors

More specifically on the ratings information, Borden County received a “Met Standard” rating on each individual academic criterion and received 4 “Distinction Designations”, which represent exemplary achievement, in the areas of Postsecondary Readiness, Top 25%: Comparative Closing the Gaps, Academic Achievement in English Language Arts/Reading, and Academic Achievement in Social Studies.

“Teachers, students, parents and community members should be very proud of the school academic ranking”, stated BC Superintendent Billy Collins. “This rating represents lots of hard work, focus and perseverance on the part of everyone at the school and they should certainly be commended. It’s just more news that demonstrates the positive things that go on at our school.”

In addition, Borden County recently received a “Superior” rating on the 2017-2018 Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas, which is the highest rating given.
Anyone who is interested can learn more about the new accountability system by visiting the Texas Education Agency A-F Resources Page on the TEA website at http://tea.texas.gov/Student_Testing_and_Accountability/Accountability/A-F_Accountability_Resources/.

2018 – 2019 School Year Begins Soon

A young man, now a college graduate, stood in front of teachers in a Maryland school district where he once went to school and gave the following passionate and inspiring speech.

“Everything that I am is because a couple of teachers like you saw through me and all my faults and saw the potential deep down inside that I couldn’t even see for myself. And it’s this type of teacher that’s made me into the man I am today—a man who has extreme love for people. So I tell you that you, the teacher, will make a big difference in the lives of each student. I’m living proof of it. I encourage you to pass the torch to the kids in your classroom so that they change their communities wherever they end up and change the world. I believe in you. Be determined. Don’t give up.”

This young person clearly addresses everything our school district and staff believes each and every year.
We see the potential in each and every student.
We have a high level of expectation and goals for each and every student.
We believe in each of them and are determined to see them succeed.

We’re excited about the 2018 – 2019 school year.
We strongly believe it holds incredible opportunities for our school district, students and staff.

With the start of the school year right around the corner, it’s time to begin the “Back to School” habits.
It can be a hard transition from the recent break back to the structure of being a student.
Parents and guardians, please help return your child to a regular routine.
We’re ready to see them in the classroom.
There is nothing like getting a good education, it gives our children a foundation for the rest of their lives.
Together – we’ll finish this school year as one of the best ever.
Be determined.

Education Doesn’t Stop

“Upon the subject of education,” Abraham Lincoln firmly stated, “I can only say that I view it as the most important subject which we as a people may be engaged in.”

In 2002 Steve Goodier wrote the following, “Each student needs experience as well as instruction. Each student needs to know how to solve problems of various kinds. They need to grow in character as well as knowledge. They need to understand that making mistakes is part of life and what’s important is how we learn from them so they are not made again. They need self-assurance as well as the ability to listen well and work with others. Students need to understand and appreciate the past, yet feel optimistic about the future. Each student needs to know the value of lifelong learning in order to keep a curious and active mind. They need to grow in understanding of others and become a student of the spirit. They need to learn to be respectful towards others and set high standards for themselves. They will need love and encouragement, so that they might be filled with love and goodness.”

Although written in 2002, Mr. Goodier pointed out different facets that have always been a part of Borden County ISD. We expect the best from our students each and every day. We hold each child accountable and provide direction and instruction as needed. We temper this expectation with love and kindness and equally praise them when they reach goals and are successful.
Pierre de Coubertin (considered the father of the modern Olympic Games) stated the following in 1896, “The important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle.”

There will be struggles, disappointments and triumphs. Research suggests that students held accountable (learning & social responsibility) and supported by adults (discipline & nurture) may be the single most important aspect of how and why children succeed in school and life. We must view parents and teachers as partners in education. Why?

As philosopher George Santayana simply said, “A child educated only at school is an uneducated child.”

We strongly believe that one child’s future may depend upon the influence that we all can provide….and because of this, something remarkable happens. No young person is ever ordinary in our classrooms. We teach each child as if the future of the world depends on their instruction….because it does.

Have a fantastic summer.

See you in the hallways in August.
