Here's a fun weekend activity: Scroll through the Texas Education Agency's accountability ratings for the Dallas Independent School District, which were released this afternoon. (You can go here for the full statewide breakdown by district, region, etc., while KTVT-Channel 11's Steve Pickett offers a ratings ranking for area's school districts.) But for the sake of the Friends of Unfair Park with kiddos still in the DISD, the highlights: Of the 231 schools in the district, 46 were rated as exemplary; 82, recognized; 73, academically acceptable; and 22, academically unacceptable.

A handful of campuses, among them the Dallas County Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program and the Disciplinary Alternative Education programs, are included but not ranked. Alas, there was one DISD school not included in the rankings due to "data integrity issues": Harold Wendell Lang Sr. Middle School, no surprise there.
