The 2006 - 2007 school performance ratings for Texas public schools were announced Wednesday by the Texas Education Agency.

Orange County’s five school districts, West Orange-Cove, Little Cypress-Mauriceville, Bridge City, Orangefield and Vidor, met with mostly favorable results.

The TEA performance report uses wide range of information on the performance of students as the basis for rating school districts and each campus within a specific district in one of four categories: exemplary, recognized, acceptable or unacceptable.

The West Orange-Cove Consolidated Independent School District earned an Academically Acceptable rating for the fourth consecutive year.

Anderson Elementary earned an Acceptable rating in 2007, which is down from a Recognized rating in 2006.

Oates Elementary earned a campus rating of Acceptable this year as well. In 2006, the school was not rated because of Hurricane Rita-related issues.

West Orange-Stark Middle School earned an Acceptable rating for the second-straight year after receiving an Unacceptable rating in 2005.

West Orange-Stark High School earned the only Unacceptable campus rating in Orange County this year. This follows three straight years of Acceptable ratings by the TEA.

Little Cypress-Mauriceville Consolidated Independent School District earned an Academically Acceptable rating from the state for the fourth-straight year.

Leading the way was Little Cypress Elementary which earned an exemplary rating, the only Orange County school to earn such a rating in 2007.

This campus has earned either Exemplary or recognized status for four consecutive years.

Mauriceville Elementary earned an Acceptable rating in 2007 after three straight years of being a Recognized campus.

Little Cypress Intermediate improved in 2007 by becoming a Recognized school. The previous three years the campus was rated Acceptable.

For the second consecutive year, Mauriceville Middle School has earned a Recognized rating from TEA.

Little Cypress Junior High earned an Acceptable rating for the fourth-straight year, while Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School earned an Acceptable rating for the third straight year.
