Texas House passes bill to reform controversial school rating system

The Texas House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to pass House Bill 22, which would overhaul the method the state plans to implement to grade the performance of school districts. 

The House passed the bill proposed by Rep. Dan Huberty (R-Houston), which would delay and revise the implementation of an A-F school district grading system. The bill would also eliminate the plan to assign a district a single letter grade and instead give each district letter grades in each of three categories.

The bill would also allow districts to use locally selected exams, not just the STAAR test, as factors in their grades. 

HB22 will now require a final vote from the House.
