The daylong session featured Dr. Deborah Cron, former superintendent of Weatherford ISD, who served as a facilitator for the day.

TEA School Report Cards Posted
The Texas Education Agency requires districts to post School Report Cards each year. These reports represent a performance index and accountability rating, as well as school financial information. They also help the district study its accountability and set goals for future performance. Data for the 2013-2014 school year is listed by district and by individual school. Letters informing parents about the school report cards will be sent home with students or mailed this week. Definitions and letters to parents are available in both English or Spanish. All of the reports, definitions, and letters to parents can be found here. If you have any questions, please contact your child's campus principal.
