Coppell ISD 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 2010.
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 districts for their high performance in a variety of academic areas.
