Welcome

   
 

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year! This is the start of my third year as superintendent of Orange Grove ISD. It continues to be a pleasure and an honor to serve in our school district where we work hard each day to make our schools a great place to teach, learn, and compete.

 

OGISD continues to offer a broad range of opportunities for our students. It is also place to form relationships, learn new and beneficial things, and prepare for future endeavors, whether it is college, a career, or the military. Our school district is also a place where students can feel safe and secure, where positive student behaviors are promoted and expected, and where learning and preparation are critical factors in our success.

 

OGISD pledges to place student learning and achievement at the top of the list, today and every day! Our effort and focus serves to enhance the quality of the public school experience for each student. That is work we commit to every single day. And when we fail, I expect to hear from you.

 

OGISD will work hard to provide each student with the kind of educational experiences that promote individual growth and development. We continue to strive to build a student learner profile that not only demands excellence in all academic areas, but provides students with the opportunity to participate in a wide range of high-quality activities. Developing well-rounded young people is an incredible task and can make a difference in our community and beyond.

 

Accountability

 

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) released a letter grade rating for our academic performance as a school district and for each campus during the 2018-2019 school year. The grade for the District was a B, moving from an 81 to an 89, narrowly missing an A because the Junior High received a D. We want to earn an A and we will work even harder and smarter to earn that distinction.

 

According to TEA, districts receive a grade for the purpose of accountability based on performance in three areas: 

  • Student Achievement measures what students know and can do by the end of the year. It includes results from state assessments across all subjects for all students, on both general and alternate assessments, College, Career, and Military Readiness (CCMR) indicators, like Advanced Placement (AP) and ACT results, and graduation rates.
  • School Progress measures how much better students are doing on the STAAR test this year versus last year, and how much better students are doing academically relative to schools with similar percentages of economically disadvantaged students.
  • Closing the Gaps looks at performance among student groups, including various racial/ethnic groups, socioeconomic backgrounds and other factors.

 

TEA further states that 70% of the accountability rating is based on the better of Student Achievement or Student Progress (whichever is better is the only performance measure counted in the calculations). The remaining 30% is based on performance in the Closing the Gaps area. To learn more about the A–F accountability system, visit https://tea.texas.gov/A-F/.

 

The tables below direct our attention to performance markers for the District and individual campuses in OGISD. The scores from the 2019 state assessments are provided along with prior years. Individual campuses are now receiving letter grades beginning in 2019. Please refer back to the definitions listed above for student achievement, school progress, and closing the gaps.
