DALLAS (AP) – The Texas Education Agency says 90 percent of districts and 85 percent of schools statewide meet the state’s minimum education standards, and many earned distinctions.

The agency made the announcement Friday as it continues to overhaul an accountability system that will eventually hand out letter grades.

The agency said 750 schools and 111 districts require improvement.

More than 4,400 campuses that met the standard earned some kind of distinction in categories that included student progress and academic achievement in areas including English, math, science and social studies.

Texas is in the process of remaking how it rates school districts and individual campuses after complaints from Education Commissioner Michael Williams, top state legislators and parents and teachers that too much emphasis was placed on standardized test scores.
