DENISON, TX -- The results are in, and Denison schools scored well with the Texas Education Agency. Two-thirds of the district’s schools rated as exemplary in the annual accountability results.
The ratings are based on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) test.
This is the first time Denison's largest elementary school, Terrell Elementary, received the coveted exemplary rating.
To be an exemplary school, 90 percent of the students must pass the TAKS in all areas tested.
Denison ISD Superintendent Dr. Henry Scott says he is proud of the school district's results and credits the dedication of students, parents and faculty for the high marks.
Sherman has five exemplary campuses, and only Gainesville ISD received an 'academically unacceptable' ranking among Texoma school districts.
