Post ISD has been given an overall rating of B. This rating takes into consideration the elementary, middle and high school academic scores.
This score still has Post ISD under “Improvement Required.” However, Post ISD is in their second year of rebuilding and improvements are showing.
Post High School was given an A rating. Post Elementary was given a C rating, and Post Middle school was rated an F.
Superintendent Heath Dickson acknowledges the middle school rating as a big concern.
Dickson says his hopes are to improve this year’s rating which will be released in August.
If Post ISD does not increase ratings throughout all schools, the state may step in and take control. By doing this, they will have the power to fire the superintendent and create their own board of supervisors.
Other schools in surrounding districts have had to partner with non-profits and colleges to increase their ratings.
“If they’re not here we can’t teach them,” says Dickson.
He is looking to increase the attendance rate to 97%. Dickson says that getting students to class on time and allowing them to have breakfast will help to improve on testing scores.
Dickson said, “Attendance is the biggest thing our parents can do to help.”
Fifth through eighth grade will begin their testing in April. Dickson hopes to see all students present and ready to test.
