Struggling Middle School Faces Challenges Due to Low Grade

The middle school received an ‘F’ grade for three consecutive years, impacting its reputation and staff recruitment. The principal discusses the difficulties faced in hiring and competing with higher-rated campuses. The consequences of a failing grade can lead to state intervention.

In 2019, the campus was in a tough position. The middle school had received an ‘F’ grade from the Texas Education Agency for the past three years based on state standardized test performance. This low grade not only affects the school’s reputation in the community but also makes hiring more difficult. The principal had 13 vacancies to fill for the upcoming school year and had to compete with higher-rated campuses. The consequences of a failing grade can also lead to state intervention.
