Caddo Mills Independent School District administrators believe the district will receive a “Recognized” rating from the Texas Education Agency.

The administrators’ prediction is based on the preliminary TAKS results.

“Basically we do give credit to the teachers, they start from the beginning of the year,” said Caddo Mills Curriculum Director Knel Gandy. “They look at data, an instructional guide to plan, a pacing guide for all grade levels and benchmark twice a year.”

The district was in close range of receiving the honor of “Exemplary,” the highest level of recognition given by the state.

Lee Elementary received the Exemplary honor. The school had a 96 percent passing rate in Reading, 95 percent in Math, 96 percent in Writing and 98 percent in Science.

“We are very excited about the number of students that were commended,” said Gandy. The “Commended” status is given to students who miss a low number of questions.

Griffis Elementary received a 100 percent passing rate in Science, 98 percent in both Writing and Math and a 90 percent passing rate in Reading.

According to administrators, several subgroups areas, including science, will likely cause the district to miss receiving the “Exemplary” rating.

Final results from the TAKS test will be released at the end of the month.
