Commerce campuses raising rating

By Kevin Jefferies

Commerce – Commerce Elementary School and A.C. Williams Elementary will move from acceptable to recognized campuses in their state accountability ratings. The move is not official, but CISD officials believe the new rating is likely based on results of the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills test. Last year, only the science portion of the TAKS test kept the campuses from the recognized level. This year, 89% of 5th graders passed that portion as compared to a statewide average of 75%.
