MIDLAND - The Midland School District has regained full academic accreditation from the Texas Education Agency.

Before this school year, the school district's rating was reduced to "accredited-warned" due to low scores on the state's exams.

Most of the low scores came from the bilingual and English as a Second Language education programs.

"My school board does not want any child to be left behind. They do not want any child to be looked over in MISD. So, we did have kids, for the lack of a better word, we were underserving them. So we've made it a priority and with the gains that we have made, now we have regained our full accreditation status," Midland ISD Superintendent, Dr. Ryder Warren, said.

Warren also said even though they've regained their full accreditation status, there's still improvements that need to be made to have every student succeed academically.
