The school's A-F academic rating was due to be released in August, but was delayed into September, then October, then November, and finally last week a Travis County judge temporarily blocked a revised Texas school accountability rating system. More than 100 school districts sued the TEA over Commissioner Morath's new A-F scale of grading schools that would take "A" rated schools and in some cases turn their rating to a "C." The lawsuit claims the drastic changes were not properly communicated to districts ahead of time so that they could prepare and that the change came after a required deadline. Letter grades can impact schools in various ways including teacher retention. This temporary injunction prohibits Commissioner of Education Mike Morath and anyone affiliated with him from assigning the new rating system for the 2022-23 school year until further order.
