Why Are The Ratings Completely Bogus For Some Districts?

The ratings exclude any campus that had a D or F rating in the calculations. If a campus received below a 70, the campus was labeled 'Not Rated and thus was excluded from the calculations for the final district grade. 42 districts and 564 campuses received at least one 'Not Rated' label.

It was passed in a Texas bill in 2021.
