We lived in Monte Vista when my son started school. The plan was to send him to Antonian, then Central Catholic. We weren't prepared for having a child with a disability. Agnes Cotton was an absolute nightmare. My son is mildly autistic with above average intelligence. I don't think the teacher had ever met an autistic child before. She dealt with my son's stimming by placing him .with a child who BIT him, several times drawing blood. I was called to the nurse's office three or four times a week during his first week in kindergarten. She also placed him in an adjoining room, all alone, as punishment. The administration responded by saying he needed medication, then trying to send him to a school for children with behavioral problems. I pulled him out at the first of November. His next school was wonderful.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
