Four elementary schools have been named as Scholar Honor Roll Schools for the Inaugural Texas Honor Roll presented by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Institute for Productivity in Education (IPE).
Beverly Cheatham Elementary School, Dr. E T Boon Elementary School, James Kerr Elementary School and Mary Evans Elementary School were all named as Scholar Honor Schools for their consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps.
The Honor Roll is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools list and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students. Schools receiving this distinction from leaders in the Texas academic and business communities have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. The Honor Roll is comprised of two different awards, the “Star Schools” Award and “Scholar Schools” Award.
Star Schools are those with significant populations of socio-economically disadvantaged students that have shown a significant increase in grade-level proficiency over time. Scholar Schools are schools that are showing significant levels of academic achievement, but do not have a significant socio-economically disadvantaged student population.
Congratulations to the staff and students at Boon, Cheatham, Evans and Kerr Elementary Schools.
