Roma ISD was awarded the state's highest rating, an "A" for academic accountability for the 2021-2022 School Year! The district earned 94 points on a 100-point scale, earning high marks for school progress, academic growth, and closing the gaps. Additionally, the district earned a special distinction designation from the state for postsecondary readiness, which demonstrates Roma ISD's commitment to ensuring students graduate college and career ready. The ratings are awarded annually by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). All school districts and schools in the state are awarded a letter grade for their academic performance. 
"We are thrilled with these results," said Roma ISD Superintendent Carlos M. Gonzalez Jr. "Our teachers were highly committed to working with our students to help them recover and excel beyond the learning losses experienced during the COVID Pandemic. They have shown what is possible when we all work together for the betterment of our children. I not only want to thank our highly committed staff but also our wonderful students who showed passion for their school work throughout the year. They persevered where others struggled. And none of this is possible without the parents who provide the support and structure needed to help their children succeed. This is a moment of pure pride for our community. Congratulations to everyone in The Gladiator Nation on this tremendous accomplishment." 
In addition to a very high overall district academic performance rating, five Roma ISD schools earned "A's" for academic excellence including Delia G. Garcia Elementary School, Emma Vera Elementary School, F. J. Scott Elementary School, R. & C. Saenz Elementary School, and R. T. Barrera Elementary School - placing all five schools in the top rankings among the region and state of Texas. 
"We are so very proud of everyone who worked to make this accomplishment possible for our community," said Roma ISD School Board President Ricardo S. Perez. "There are simply no words to do justice to the pride everyone on the school board feels when seeing these kinds of results. The Pandemic did not slow Roma ISD down, but in my opinion, strengthened the resolve of our community to ensure our students recovered and progressed. Thank you teachers, staff, students, and parents for working together to show our state and nation what is possible in a small town with a big heart."
