Plano ISD academic profile
DFW school districts rank: 6
Academic performance score: 10
Texas Education Agency overall performance grade: A
In addition to its 2019 top-tier DFW school districts ranking, Plano Independent School District also is recognized as one of the top school districts in Texas. The ranking methodology used for both the state and metropolitan area best school districts analyses presented on this best DFW school districts rankings page.
The academic performance score provides a quick way to determine approximately where a school district's or school's student academic performance ranks among the performance of students in other Texas districts and schools. School districts and campuses with combined State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) and college readiness indexes ranked in the top ten percent of Texas school districts and schools are awarded an academic performance score of 10, districts and schools with combined academic performance indexes in the ninth decile receive a score of 9, and so on.
Plano ISD was joined by 11.9 percent of all Texas K-12 school districts in being recognized by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) with an overall performance grade of A, the top grade awarded in 2018 to school districts.
Plano Independent School District operates forty-four elementary schools, thirteen middle schools, and ten high schools. These sixty-seven schools are attended by approximately 53,700 students who live in Plano, Frisco, Dallas, Murphy, Parker and Richardson.
Plano ISD's 2018 TEA STAAR component scaled score is 91. As is further explained in the Texas Education Agency 2018 Accountability Manual, the STAAR scaled score is calculated by first adding equal weightings of the percentage of assessments on which students’ performance mastered grade level, met grade level and approached grade level, dividing the sum by 3 and rounding it to the nearest whole percentage. This raw STAAR raw component score is then adjusted or “scaled” by using a conversion table to align accountability letter grades and scores of Texas public school districts and campuses.
As depicted in the 2018 TEA STAARS scores graph (right) and shown in the Plano ISD schools table (below), thirty-six Plano ISD campuses attained TEA STAAR scaled scores between 90 and 100, nine campuses STAAR scores were between 80 and 89, twelve had scores between 70 and 79, and four Plano ISD campuses had STAAR scaled scores between 60 and 69.
Students living in the north Dallas suburbs and north Dallas area profiled on this website attend twenty-six Plano ISD schools. Twenty of these campuses have a 2018 TEA STAAR scaled score between 90 and 100, three between 80 and 89, one between 70 and 79, and the STAAR scaled score of one campus is between 60 and 69. The 2018 accountability rating for all Plano ISD schools is Met Standard, the TEA's highest campus rating.
