In a board work session Sept. 4, Lewisville ISD assessment director Sarah Fitzhugh explained that LISD might have earned a higher rating on the state A-F grades released at the beginning of August. The board also discussed the legislative priorities document it will present to local officials this month and looked toward building next year’s academic calendar.

In August, the Texas Education Agency released its first official A-F ratings of school districts in Texas. Lewisville ISD earned an 89, but had already publicly rejected the rating system.

At the work session, Fitzhugh explained that going through the full calculation, LISD actually earned a 90.2, but was assigned 89 because school districts are not allowed to score higher than that with at least one campus classified as “improvement required.”
