ET charter school campus appealing TEA accountability ruling

LONGVIEW (KYTX) - An East Texas charter school campus missed the mark in recent state accountability ratings.

U.T. Tyler's Innovation Academy met the Texas Education Agency's standards of accountability as a public school district, but it's campus in Longview did not meet standards this year either in progressing or in closing gaps in student performance.
Innovation Academy educates kids in third-through-seventh grades. The Longview campus met standards in achievement and post-secondary readiness.

Director Michael Odell says he believes it's a data error related to the school's economically disadvantaged students, which make up 18 percent of the school's 111 students.

Odell says Innovation Academy is appealing the ruling.

Campuses in Tyler and Palestine met all T.E.A. standards, with Palestine's Innovation Academy earning a distinction for math achievement.
