Coppell ISD earns 10 Gold Performance Acknowledgements

    Coppell ISD earned a top ranking with 10 Gold Performance Acknowledgements (GPAs), as awarded by the Texas Education Agency, for the second consecutive year. Furthermore, a total of 86 acknowledgments were given out among all 14 campuses and the district this year. All campuses eligible in the areas of Commended Writing (all elementary and middle schools) and Commended Social Studies (all middle and high schools) received GPAs in these areas.

    Gold Performance Acknowledgements are used by the state to rate districts on a broader scale than TAKS alone. Among the several state ratings systems, the state accountability system rates districts on a deficiency model (ratings are based on the lowest indicator), while the GPA system recognizes district for their high performance in a variety of academic areas.

    The 10 Gold Performance Acknowledgements CISD received are as follows:

      • AP/IB Results
      • Attendance Rate
      • College-Ready Graduates
      • Commended Reading/ELA
      • Commended Mathematics
      • Commended Writing
      • Commended Social Studies
      • SAT/ACT Results
      • Texas Success Initiative: Higher Education Readiness Component: English Language Arts
      • Texas Success Initiative: Higher Education Readiness Component: Math

    Coppell High School is one of only 38 schools in the state of Texas to receive a GPA for SAT/ACT Results, and it is also one of 29 schools in Texas to receive acknowledgements in AP/IB Results, College-Ready Graduates, and SAT/ACT Results.

    Coppell received four acknowledgements out of the five top performing TAKS categories: Commended Reading, Commended Math, Commended Writing, and Commended Social Studies. CISD received these acknowledgements because 30% or more of every student group in each subject area scored at the Commended level on the TAKS exam in spring 2009.
