Texas school districts received their first letter grades on Aug. 15. Here is how the grading system works.

The Arlington school district received a B rating from the Texas Education Agency in ratings released Thursday.

The district had five A-rated schools, 19 B-rated schools, 28 C-rated schools, 13 D-rated schools and four F-rated schools.

A-rated schools were Arlington Collegiate High School, Young Junior High, Butler Elementary, Duff Elementary and Fitzgerald Elementary. The F-rated schools were Berry Elementary, Short Elementary, Speer Elementary and Wimbish Elementary.

Anita Foster, a spokeswoman for the district, said the district is not considering Wimbish Elementary an F because the ratings do not reflect the school’s change to Wimbish World Language Academy. Students at Wimbish World Language Academy can enroll in English-Spanish or English-French dual-language program.

“While we received a higher grade than last year, the results are just a snapshot of how our schools are performing, not a picture of our student experience,” Superintendent Marcelo Cavazos said in a news release. “Our priority has always been and will continue to be making sure that all of our students graduate exceptionally prepared for college, career and citizenship.”
