The Beaumont Independent School District received a “Not Rated” label for meeting the Texas Education Agency’s criteria to qualify for the Hurricane Harvey waiver provided to districts impacted by the 2017 hurricane. In spite of the many challenges the District faced, such as missed instructional days and displaced students, achievement gains were made by numerous campuses. Several campuses that were labeled “Improvement Required (IR)” earned a rating of “Met Standard.” Those campuses are Charlton-Pollard, Martin, Pietzsch-MacArthur, Caldwood and South Park.
Eighteen campuses were rated as "Met Standard" based on 2018 STAAR performance. The following campuses received distinctions based on STAAR performance:
- Charlton-Pollard Elementary School — ELA/Reading, Comparative Academic Growth, Postsecondary Readiness and Comparative Closing the Gap
- Clifton J. Ozen High School — Science
- Curtis Elementary School — ELA/Reading
- Dishman Elementary School — ELA/Reading
- Marshall Middle School — Social Studies
- Odom Academy — Social Studies and Postsecondary Readiness
- Regina-Howell Elementary School — Science
- Vincent Middle School — Comparative Academic Growth
- West Brook High School — ELA/Reading, Science and Social Studies
To address issues with lack of instructional time last year, the 2018-2019 instructional calendar was modified to increase the number of days for instruction prior to testing. We expect that this restructure will have a significant impact on student achievement. The District will continue to focus on equipping teachers with the necessary skills to meet the needs of all students through ongoing professional development and by providing quality feedback and coaching.
