Sherman ISD releases STAAR test results

SHERMAN, Texas -- The Sherman ISD announced Monday that students excelled at the STAAR tests for the 2013-2014 academic year.

The district reports Sherman High School, which 1,700 students attend, met standards and swept all six Distinction Designations from the state.

Distinction Designations are awarded to campuses that outperform other schools and go above and beyond the basic rules of accountability, according to a press release.

"It's very encouraging to continually be recognized for top performance," said Superintendent Dr. Al Hambrick in the press release.

Dillingham Intermediate, Jefferson, Neblett and Sory Elementary also earned distinctions.

All elementary campuses also met standard, except for Fairview and Wakefield. Sherman ISD said those schools will implement an improvement plan.
