TEA Distinctions and Ratings

 

 

Outstanding Score from Texas Education Agency – Distinctions & Ratings

HSA-Sugar Land earns all possible distinctions for an Elementary School: six out of six! In addition, gets an A rating; congrats to all the students, staff and families!

“Earning one or several campus-level distinctions is notable and should be applauded by a community as an outstanding achievement,” said Texas Commissioner of Education, Mike Morath. “For a school to earn every potential distinction applicable to their campus is difficult, but a reflection of some truly amazing work by our educators.”

TEA encourages parents to view the 2018 accountability ratings for school districts, charters and campuses statewide at https://txschools.org/. Report cards are designed to be useful tools in seeing how a school or school district is doing in different areas. Or go straight to https://txschools.org/schools/101862001/overview to view the report card of HSA-SL.
