Carroll school leaders react to state ratings issued by the Texas Education Agency this week.
"Our student scores on the more rigorous STAAR test were among some of the best in the state," said Carroll Superintendent David J. Faltys. "We met state standards, but more important to us is how each student did on the test and how we can increase individual achievement."
Trainers with Lead4Ward were on site in Carroll all day Thursday to explain in detail the state's new accountability system and to help educators learn how to best use the data to help students achieve.
"Carroll students rose to the occasion to achieve success under the state's more rigorous accountability system," said Dr. JJ Villarreal, Assistant Superintendent for Student Services in Carroll ISD. "Our teachers and administrators met with state officials to unpack the new accountability system in a way that will help us identify strategies to close student gaps."
