Bynum ISD Achieves Met Standard rating plus all academic distinctions
The Texas Education Agency recently announced Texas schools achieving MET Standard rating plus all academic distinctions. Under the state accountability system, campuses in Texas that achieve the rating of Met Standard can also earn distinction designations in the following three areas:
Bynum High School Awarded Bronze Award
U.S. News & World Report analyzed 21,035 public high schools in 49 states and the District of Columbia. This is the total number of public high schools that had 12th-grade enrollment and sufficient data from the 2010-2011 school year to analyze. (Nebraska was the only state that did not report enough data and therefore was not evaluated for any part of the rankings.)
The U.S. News Best High Schools project identifies the country's top-performing public high schools. The goal is to provide a clear, unbiased picture of how well public schools serve all of their students – from the highest achieving to the lowest achieving – in preparing them to demonstrate proficiency in basic skills as well as readiness for college-level work.
The U.S. News & World Report's editors believe high schools are among America's most important institutions, adding the Best High Schools to its series was a natural progression. Education drives our country's future. Recognizing schools that are performing well and providing them as models to other schools will inspire educators and communities to do better. By sharing this information, parents across the country will be armed with information to help them make better-informed decisions about their child's education.
All public high schools were eligible and nearly all were evaluated in the process of calculating the rankings. The U.S. News Best High Schools methodology collected state test data from state departments of education. The information used to determine rankings can be found online.
Tax Rate Information
Bynum ISD adopted a tax rate that will raise more taxes for maintenance and operations than last year's tax rate. The tax rate will effectively be raised by 12.5422 percent and will raise taxes for maintenance and operations on a $100,000 home by approximately $-44.30.

The new resource site www.TexasCollegeandCareer.org is available state-wide at no-cost to all Texas secondary students, their families and educators.

Texas College & Career targets an increase in the rate of K12 graduates transitioning to positive postsecondary outcomes.
