Glenmore Elementary Receives Two Reward Designations from TEA

November 10, 2016

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has identified 300 campuses across the state as high-performing and/or high-progress Title I schools for 2015-2016. SAISD’s Glenmore Elementary is being recognized for both high performance and high progress.

The identification of high-performing and/or high-progress is based on statewide reading and mathematics assessments under the State Accountability System in the 2014-2015 school year and graduation rates. 

A high-performing reward school is identified as a Title I school with distinctions based on reading and math performance, as well as the highest graduation rates at the high school level. For 2015-2016, TEA has identified 160 Texas campuses as high-performing. 

A high-progress reward school is identified as a Title I school in the top 25 percent in annual improvement and/or a school in the top 25 percent of those demonstrating ability to close performance gaps (based on state accountability system safeguards in the 2014-2015 school year). For 2015-2016, TEA has identified 140 Texas campuses as high-progress.

The identification of high-performing and/or high-progress Title I schools is a part of the state’s conditional waiver from the U.S. Department of Education for specific provisions of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (commonly known as the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001). 

Glenmore is one of only three High-Performing Schools and one of only two High-Progress Schools in Region XV.
