FISD Statement About A-F Accountability Rating System

Frenship ISD Seal The A-F Rating system is still in the development phase so the publicized grades are preliminary. The provisional A-F rating is one of many ratings by which all public school districts are judged that are primarily based on a paper and pencil, standardized test given on one day of an entire school year. 

While a well-constructed assessment provides important data, it offers only limited insight regarding a child’s overall academic progress or a teacher’s effectiveness. No test can accurately reflect the complexities of educating a student. The development of the new rating system will continue through 2018 so it is a bit premature to discuss the ratings in depth.

That said, Frenship takes the responsibility of helping every child maximize his or her potential very seriously. We hold ourselves accountable to our local community’s high standards of excellence.  

We are committed to providing our students with personally meaningful learning which adapts to our changing world. Our focus will continue to be providing a quality twenty-first century education that will equip our students for the future.
