"I have three students in the Jim Ned High school, so it is definitely a concern of mine," said Betty Hartmankok.
They're concerned about a grade for the entire high school..
A state assessment stating the school's academics isn't up to par.
fact its unacceptable.
Really, that's the actual outcome of an assessment by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) that deemed the school as academically unacceptable and
now administrators have to by law notify parents.
"We're just making sure we do an excellent job regardless of what the state thinks," said David Hogan, the principal at Jim Ned High school.
The rating however is from two years ago.
This has some parents concerned.
"You know you want them to make sure that they are getting what they need you know to be productive," said Hartmankok.
That's how long its been since the last assessment which administrators think is now outdated.
"We ran the numbers ourselves as as last years even though we didn't have the chance to exit our current rating and it looked like that we would have been outside of the academically unacceptable rating," said Hogan.
Yet they still have to send out this note every year until the next assessment, regardless and parents still have thje option to move their child to another school, which some are considering.
"If I felt like you know it would be more comprehensive to get the math," said Hartmankok.
That's the subject enough students failed in for them to recieve this rating.
But not all parents are worried.
"They've done just fine so they're really pretty smart as far as I have seen and I really don't have a problem with it whatsoever," said Jenny Michaels, whose children go to the high school.
long as they make the grade next time around.
A representative from TEA says the reason they haven't had another assessment since 2011 is because they're changing their methods of assessing for the 2013 school year.
Hogan assures they are now up to standards and parents shouldn't expect to receive this letter next year.
