The Texas School Guide 2016 School Rankings have now been released.
Children at Risk (CAR) publishes an annual report on school rankings that is intended to serve as a guide for parents, educators and community members on the performance of local schools. Schools are measured in 4 areas:
Once measurements have been completed, the school receives a letter grade in which the school rank reflects where the campus falls within the north Texas area or the state, respectively, in comparison to other elementary, middle or high school campuses rated by CAR. The CAR letter grades are based on the relative position of the school within the ranking system. Overall, 22 of 32 Irving ISD campuses rated improved in the letter grade in 2016. J. O. Davis Elementary received an “A” ranking.
Irving ISD was named the 2015 National Advanced Placement (AP) District of the Year for expanding student access to AP courses and improving AP Exam performance.
$22.5 million in scholarships were award to students in 2015. 137 scholars were awarded scholarships through The Irving Schools Foundation.
