AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – The Texas Education Agency says about 94 percent of districts and 86 percent of schools statewide meet the state’s minimum education standards.

Conversely, in its annual announcement of accountability ratings on Friday, the TEA says improvement will be required in the performance of 57 school districts and 610 individual public schools. The remaining 11 districts and 564 campuses weren’t rated.

Last year, the TEA reported that 90 percent of the districts and 85 percent of the schools statewide met standards, while improvement was required for 750 schools and 76 districts. However, the TEA warns that substantial changes in how the state’s accountability testing system is structured make any direct comparison between this year’s results and last year’s difficult and potentially deceiving.
