Smaller PEG List

The Texas Education Agency has released the PEG (Public Education Grant) Schools for 2017-2018. The good news is BISD has successfully decreased the list of 6 schools identified as PEG to 3 schools. Congratulations to Faulk Middle School, Lopez ECHS and Stell Middle School for being removed from the PEG list for 2017-2018. These 3 campuses maintained scores greater than 50% and were rated as Met Standard for 2 of the 3 academic years. Three schools, Cummings Middle School, Perkins Middle School and Porter ECHS, are still listed as PEG schools. A school is placed on the PEG list if it meets one of the following criteria: 1. The aggregated passing rate on any subject-area STAAR assessment (including end-of-course assessments) is less than or equal to 50% for any two of the three years, 2014-2016. 2. The school was rated Improvement Required in 2014, 2015 or 2016. Congratulations to the students, parents and employees at Faulk, Lopez and Stell on their academic progress.
