Burkburnett ISD Moving to Community-Based Accountability

Burkburnett clip Burkburnett ISD in Region 9 recently received some media attention due to its involvement in the Texas Public Accountability Consortium (TPAC), a group of 51 Texas school districts working to build on the success of community-based accountability systems already in use in districts across the state by developing next-generation measures and assessments that would enable wider use of such systems.

The district is developing its own community-based accountability system.

"An ideal Burkburnett graduate will be college ready, career ready or military ready, whichever avenue they choose," said Superintendent Tylor Chaplin. "We need to be able to prepare them for that. But at the same time, we need to be able to help them transcend certain skills whichever career they choose."
