Accountability & HB3 Goals
Mesquite ISD 2021-22 District Rating: B / 85
Parents are encouraged to visit TXschools.gov to view online report cards designed to be useful tools in seeing how a school or school district is doing in different areas. The report cards spotlight specific strengths and challenges, in order to assure the needs of all students are being met. Families can search by district or school name and compare their district’s or school’s performance to others in their area.
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 May 9, 2022, meeting. To view a downloadable, printable document containing these goals, click on the following button.
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.

- Academic Achievement in English Language Arts/Reading
- Academic Achievement In Mathematics
- Academic Achievement in Science
- Academic Achievement in Social Studies
- Top 25% Comparative Growth
- Top 25% Comparative Closing the Gaps
