Educational Results Partnership Announces 2018-2019 Honor Roll

gbafNews28

Educational Results Partnership (ERP), a nonprofit organization that applies data science to identify strategies that accelerate student success, today announced the 2018 – 2019 Honor Roll, recognizing Texas public schools, school districts and charter systems that have outperformed their peers in closing achievement gaps among higher-poverty student populations. The organization identified 855 schools and six districts based on the nations largest database on student achievement, publicly available at www.edresults.org.

Schools and districts that appear on the Honor Roll have demonstrated consistently high levels of student achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. The selection process also includes measures of college readiness for high schools. The program further recognizes STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) schools with a high percentage of low-income students that have demonstrated superior achievement.

The Honor Roll is the only school recognition program in Texas based solely on objective achievement data, said Marilyn Reznick, ERP board chair. Our goal is to guide other educators to data-informed best practices for raising student achievement.

The Honor Roll program is part of a national effort to recognize successful educational systems and promote solutions that are shown to improve student outcomes.

ERP is all about improving educational equity and promoting career readiness for all students, regardless of their family income, background or ZIP code, said James Lanich, Ph.D., ERP president and CEO. These Honor Roll schools and districts are living proof that our students can succeed when schools are committed to removing educational obstacles and accelerating student success. By focusing attention on these bright spots among our schools, we hope to change the conversation from ˜whats wrong to ˜whats working, and encourage others to replicate their success.

The Texas Honor Roll program is supported by numerous businesses and organizations, including the Texas Business Leadership Council, American Automobile Association (AAA) Texas, Macys, Wells Fargo, Chevron Corporation and Enterprise Holdings Foundation. We value the support of our business partners, Dr. Lanich said. Employers have a big stake in improving outcomes for students who will make up the workforce of the future.

In partnership with educators and employers, ERP charts the pathways that lead to academic success and living-wage jobs. ERPs goal is to ensure that more students are equipped to enter the workforce with the skills todays global economy demands.
