The spring 2011 TAKS scores were not up to par with past exemplary years at Austwell-Tivoli Elementary. However, Stephen Maldonado, principal is still hopeful that the school’s exemplary status will be preserved because of the high number of commended scores students received .

Of the 14 students in third grade, 79 percent passed, with 50 percent earning commended; mathematics, 86 percent passed, with 79 percent commended.

Of the 11 students in fourth grade 100 percent passed in reading, with 54 percent commended; 100 percent passed mathematics, with 64 commended; 91 percent passed writing, with 55 percent commended

Of the 18 fifth graders, 100 percent pass reading, 41 percent, commended; 94 percent passed mathematics, 59 percent commended; 89 percent passed science , 50 percent commended.

Of the 16 sixth graders, 94 percent pass reading, 31percent commended; 75 percent passed mathematics, 19 percent commended

The passing average of students was 90.8 percent and the commended average 50.2 percent.

“This is as close as it gets to either being officially rated an exemplary school or a recognized one,” Maldonado said. “There were a few surprises this year. Students who should have passed without difficulty did, but on the bright side, some who were struggling passed and two were even commended.”

Although the principal has high hope of a top rating once again official word will not be available until late summer.

“Due to the significantly high number of students being commended and other complicated demographics used by the TEA, Austwell-Tivoli Elementary has hope for once again being recognized for what it is – an exemplary school,” Maldonado said.
