The Texas Education Agency has just released the list of 892 Texas public school campuses that have been identified as low performing because of poor test scores or unacceptable ratings under the Public Education Grant program (PEG):

Below is the list of CSCOPE school districts/school systems as of 8.25.12:   http://nocompromisepac.ning.com/profiles/blogs/cscope-list-of-texas-school-districts-school-systems-as-of-8-25?xg_source=activity

 

By comparing the two lists posted above (PEG vs. CSCOPE), the public should be able to  determine generally whether CSCOPE is helping or hindering the academic performance of Texas students.

 

The following chart tells what the abbreviations found in the far right-hand column on the PEG List mean.

 

Reasons for Identification:
R The STAAR/TAKS passing rate in Reading/English Language Arts was 50 percent or below for the tested grades at the campus (2011, 2012, 2013).
W The STAAR/TAKS passing rate in Writing was 50 percent or below for the tested grades at the campus (2011 or 2013).
M The STAAR/TAKS passing rate in Mathematics was 50 percent or below for the tested grades at the campus (2011, 2012, 2013).
C The STAAR/TAKS passing rate in Science was 50 percent or below for the tested grades at the campus (2011 or 2013).
S The STAAR/TAKS passing rate in Social Studies was 50 percent or below for the tested grades at the campus (2011 or 2013).
AU The campus was rated Academically Unacceptable (2011), or Improvement Required (2013).
