Fort Bend ISD Receives “B” Rating from TEA

(FORT BEND ISD)- Fort Bend ISD received a B rating, an 89, in the Texas Education Agency’s district ratings for the 2021-22 school year.

The district earned the same score as it did in the last set of TEA ratings from the 2018-19 school year. As a result of the pandemic, for the 2019-20 and the 2020-21 school years, all districts and campuses received a label of “Not Rated: Declared State of Disaster.”


In the 2021-22 ratings, FBISD received high marks for its graduation rate (90); academic growth (90); relative performance regarding the percentage of students considered economically disadvantaged (89); and closing achievement gaps (88).


Fort Bend ISD’s schools also made improvements, with 22 schools improving at least one letter grade or more, compared to the 2018-19 scores. The 2021-22 individual school ratings are:


  • 26 schools received an A

  • 39 schools received a B

  • 9 schools received a C


The district’s specialty campuses are not included in yearly academic ratings.


Three FBISD schools – McAuliffe Middle School, and Marshall and Willowridge high schools – did not receive ratings for the 2021-22 school year due to scores less than 70. Per Senate Bill 1365, passed during the 87th legislative session in 2021, low-performing campuses are allowed to remain unrated to provide more recovery time due to the pandemic.


“While these ratings do not capture all the improvements our students have made since the start of the pandemic, they do show that significant growth has taken place,” FBISD Superintendent Christie Whitbeck said. “In this school year and beyond, we will continue our work to close the gaps in learning and support all our students. I commend those campuses that increased their performance by an entire letter grade or more.”


Several campuses moved up a grade higher compared to the last set of available scores. Of note, Hunters Glen Elementary earned an A rating after receiving a C in the 2018-19 report, and Ridgemont Elementary earned a B compared to a D in the previous report.
