The latest accountability ratings released by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) show that Melissa ISD received an “A” rating for overall district performance for the 2018-19 academic year.
The rating highlights three key areas – student achievement, school progress, and closing the gaps – and is based on student performance data from Harry McKillop Elementary, North Creek Elementary, Melissa Middle School, and Melissa High School.
Keith Murphy, Superintendent of Melissa Schools, joined by Deputy Superintendent Kim Boedeker and Sharon Carroll, Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction, shared the following statement regarding the district’s rating from the state.
“Team Melissa is performing at a high level, and we are proud of our kids, teachers, and community. Our campus administrators have fully embraced and championed the Melissa way; they are the drivers of our success. As a district, we are pleased with our ‘A’ rating, but our focus at Melissa Schools remains on continuous improvement: we will never be complacent and will always strive to continually improve in all areas, with a goal of moving all students forward.”
Superintendent Murphy added, “I think it is also important to point out that Collin and Grayson counties have some of the greatest public school systems in the state and in this nation.”
