HB3 Board Goals
HB3 requires school boards to adopt detailed plans developed by their management teams that achieve goals in two key areas:
- Early childhood literacy and mathematics (EC-LM ) proficiency
- College, career, and military readiness (CCMR)
School boards must review the progress of each plan at least annually at a public meeting. These goals will be posted on the district website for the district level goals and on each campus website for the campus level goals once approved. The Board of Trustees approved these goals at the April 13, 2020, meeting. To download view the goals, click on the following button.
Mesquite ISD 2020 District Rating: Not Rated Due to a Declared State of Disaster
The 2020 rating label that was issued to all districts and campuses was Not Rated due to a Declared State of Disaster. Due to extraordinary public health and safety circumstances, the closure of schools during the state’s testing window inhibited the ability of the state to accurately measure district and campus performance. Due to this circumstance, the district and campuses retained their 2019-2020 ratings.
Mesquite ISD 2018-2019 District Rating: B / 87

Note: TEA did not award any Distinction Designations for 2019-20 due to the COVID-19 related declared state of disaster.
Campuses that receive a rating of C or above are eligible for distinction designations. Distinction designations are awarded to campuses based on achievement on performance indicators compared to a group of 40 campuses of similar type, size and student demographics. There are seven possible distinctions; however, not all seven distinctions are possible at all campuses. For example, Academic Achievement in Social Studies is not available for elementary campuses.
The distinctions are:
- Top 25% Student Progress (based on Index 2)
- Top 25% Closing Achievement Gap (based on Index 3)
- Academic Achievement in Reading/Language Arts
- Academic Achievement in Math
- Academic Achievement in Science
- Academic Achievement in Social Studies
- Post-secondary Readiness
Kimball Elementary, Motley Elementary and Wilkinson Middle School earned all possible distinctions in the 2019 accountability ratings.
58% of campuses in MISD earned one or more distinctions in 2019.
“Earning one or more campus distinctions is noteworthy and should be a source of pride in a community,” said Commissioner of Education Mike Morath.
