What you should know about the state's new A-F accountability system
Elgin ISD does not embrace the notion that a label or a grade based on a single test that has long been criticized for its validity and reliability can accurately assess the quality of our schools and the hard work or our students, teachers, and staff. We believe that such a system oversimplifies the extremely complicated process of educating our children into a sound bite that is neither accurate nor ethically responsible. Rather, our focus is to provide a quality 21st century education that far exceeds the limited parameters of this state accountability design. Our schools are so much more than one test. More importantly, our students are so much more than one score!
In its efforts to promote nondiscrimination, Elgin ISD does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, or disability in providing education services, activities, and programs, including CTE programs, in accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended; Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972; and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), as amended, which incorporates and expands upon the requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.
