EP Rayzor Accountability

Dear Parents:

 A copy of our school report card that is published annually by the Texas Education Agency is available on the Denton ISD webpage. The report provides information concerning student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR), as well as information on student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures. As you review the report card, please make note of the following information:

SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY RATING: In 2015, EP Rayzor Elementary earned a Met Standard rating from the state of Texas for excellence in academic achievement. This rating was earned because of the hard work of our teachers and students and is based on four performance measures that are identified in the Performance Index section on the school report card.

PERFORMANCE INDEX: Our campus exceeded the target score established in four of the performance indexes. We are most proud of our accomplishments in the area of Student Achievement and Closing Performance Gaps.  In the area of Student Achievement we exceeded the target score by thirty-six points.  In the area of Closing Performance Gaps we exceeded the target score by twenty-nine points.  These successes are a result of the hard work of our dedicated students, teachers and parents.  Our staff meets weekly in Professional Learning Communities to look at student progress, review student work and improve instruction for all our students.  EP Rayzor’s teachers used a myriad of data such as Think Through Math, I-Station, DRA, SRI, ELI, Kathy Richardson and Common Assessments to ensure that we are delivering a rigorous curriculum that meets students” individual needs.  As a staff, we meet twice a month to continue our leaning and grow as professionals so that we are current in best practices for student learning. 

DISTINCTION DESIGNATIONS: are awarded in recognition of outstanding achievement in specific categories. In 2015 our campus was recognized for Academic Achievement in Reading/LA and Top 25 Percent Student Progress.
