All MFISD Campuses achieved Academic Distinctions in one or more areas in the latest release of accountability ratings from the State. The traditional Exemplary, Recognize, Acceptable and Unacceptable ratings no longer exist. In the new system, however, a district or a campus can receive an “academic distinction” rating for highp erformance in Reading, Math or Student progress.
“I am proud to announce that in addition to all of our campuses receiving a ‘met standard’ designation, all of our campuses also received an academic distinction rating for superior achievement in one or more areas,” said MFISD Superintendent, Dr.Robert O’Connor. “These achievements were accomplished through the hard work and dedication of our teachers, staff and students, and the support of our parents and community.”
Campuses are rated based on their students’ performance as compared to a State designated Campus Comparison Group. To achieve adistinction as a Top 25 percent performer, or for a Subject area of distinction, campuses were required to achieve in the top 25 percent of their comparable cohort.

“Comparing district campuses under the new system is interesting, because all of MFISD’s campuses were placed by the State in different competitive comparison groups with schools from around Texas that have similar student populations,” reports Lee Courville, MFISD Director of Elementary Education. “The new State accountability system will keep our individual campuses focused on closing the performance gap by serving the needs of each school’s unique population.”
