The Texas Education Agency 2018 school ratings have been published.
You can see them here.
EPISD’s highest graded middle school was Hornedo with a score of 91. Charles Middle was scored at 89.
The El Paso Leadership Academy is a chartered middle school and they scored an 85.
They did that with no bond money.
Our congratulations to the students, faculty and staff at these schools.
This is better
Not sure your point Brutus: The 2 higher scoring schools are in EPISD. Does that mean you approve of bond money? Or do you approve of over crowded schools? Hornedo has 1400 students and EPLA has less than 200.
I was not trying to imply anything.
I was simply trying to recognize achievement and especially the achievement of a school that somehow is succeeding even without bond money.
Thank you for your participation.
Looks like EPISD hit it out of the park?
I am not sure of the point either. Upon further clarification it seems the point is even less obvious. There are many factors that cause a campus to be rated a particular score. Whether a school did or did not receive bond funds is not one of them. For the examples you just provided I am sure we could find schools that have been built and renovated using bond funds that did well. I am sure we also could find schools built or renovated with or without bond funds that did not do well. Correlation does not imply causation.
Some schools occupy prime potential commercial property, e.g., Carlos Rivera. But I’m sure that won’t enter into EPISD’s deliberations about closure.
That depends on who wants those properties.
It looks like Hornedo was built with 2007 Bond Funds. I guess your theory doesn’t hold true Brutus.
