During the week of August 15, 2019, when the state’s A-F campus and district ratings were released, Sunnyvale ISD sent a copy of its annual Community Report to all Sunnyvale mailboxes.
“We believe that the Community-Based Accountability Report is a reflection of the beliefs and aspirations of our community,” Superintendent Doug Williams said. “It helps us meet our goal that all our students are future-ready. While we appreciate the work by our teachers and students to receive the “A” on the state system, this only tells a small part of the success story at SISD.”
The Community Report is the evaluation tool for Sunnyvale ISD. It was created with the intention of accurately reporting to the community what Sunnyvale students are achieving regularly – from academic progress and future-readiness, to their extracurricular endeavors and even parental and community involvement. While STAAR scores are included in the report, the tool also reports ACT/SAT scores, Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) and much more.
“As evident in our community report, our students are showing measured growth and success in a variety of areas,” Director of Accountability Amy Tutle said. “Sunnyvale students are involved in so many activities beyond their academics that it’s important that we consider their success holistically. High achievement should be measured in multiple ways.”
Data collected from this community-based rating is used to help SISD grow and improve. District administrators utilize these scores to create district and campus goals and priorities.
