North Austin School Districts Ranked on New A-F Grade System

As a parent, finding the best school district for your children is typically high on your home search wish list. But how do you know which school districts are the best? The Texas Education Agency recently released school ratings based on an “A” to “F” grade system for the first time. The new system was developed for two main reasons: (1) to inform parents about how their schools are performing and (2) to provide information to help district and campus leaders. How did North Austin school districts rank? Here’s a look at the details:
