Elysian Fields ISD receives an “A” rating from the State

Elysian Fields ISD has received an “A” rating from the Texas Education Agency with the release of the state’s first school accountability ratings since before the COVID-19 pandemic.

EFISD was rated with an “A” grade for the 2021-2022 school year, the highest rating a school district can achieve. The TEA released the accountability ratings on Monday.

The state accountability ratings are the first to be issued since 2019 due to two years of COVID-related pauses. Nearly 1,200 districts and 8,451 campuses were rated this year, with returns showing promising signs of progress in Texas’s efforts to catch students up academically.

“I am grateful to our teachers and staff, parents, and our community, who focused on putting our students first,” said EFISD Superintendent Monica Simmons, who is in her first full year as superintendent after serving as the district’s Assistant Superintendent and Curriculum Director since 2019. “All of the hard work and diligence has paid off. I am proud of EFISD’s continued progress and excited about the school year ahead. I am certain that we will continue to ensure every child in EFISD reaches their full potential.”

EFISD welcomed students back to campus for 2022-2023 with the first day of school on Monday.
