(KYTX) - Preliminary STAAR test scores across the State of Texas are pretty stagnant, not showing much improvement from last year, and some numbers even dropped. Some East Texas districts rose above those state scores, and some followed suit.
In this report, we focus on middle school scores, which have been low state-wide in the past. We saw some mixed results locally.
Several local school districts, like Lindale and Whitehouse, were much higher than the state average in sixth through eighth grade in every subject.
Two of the districts that showed some lower preliminary scores were Tyler ISD and Longview ISD. These two districts scored lower than the state average in every subject for sixth, seventh, and eighth grades.
She acknowledges that TISD scores, along with several other local districts, still remain lower than the state average.
