116 North Texas schools identified as low performing

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

The parents of thousands of North Texas students will get a letter soon telling them their school does not make the grade.

The Texas Education Agency has compiled its annual list of low performing schools based on poor test scores or unacceptable ratings from the state's Public Education Grant program.

This year the number of campuses across the state on the list nearly doubled to 892. Locally, Dallas and Fort Worth have the most campuses on the list, but many suburban districts are on it as well.

Students in low performing schools are allowed to transfer to another school or district, but Dallas Independent School District spokesman Jon Dahlander said few do because transportation is not provided.

DISD will host a public meeting Thursday evening for parents with questions. It will begin at 5:45 p.m. at the Ada L. Williams Auditorium, which is located at 3700 Ross Avenue in Dallas.
