Nine RISD Elementary Schools Earn Honor Roll Status for 2018–19
Nine RISD elementary schools received Honor Roll designation for the 2018–19 school year from the Education Results Partnership.
The nonprofit annually analyzes student data from every public school in Texas to identify the leaders in student achievement.
The Richardson ISD elementary schools that attained Honor Roll status include: Big Springs, Bowie, Brentfield, Canyon Creek, MST, Prestonwood, Richardson Terrace, Springridge and Yale.
Honor Roll recognizes schools that “demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.”
In Texas, 855 higher-performing schools and six exemplary school districts were recognized as Honor Roll this past year. The high-achieving campuses all have “clear, specific learning objectives aligned to college and career readiness,” according to Education Results Partnership.
Each of the nine RISD elementary schools will proudly display their Honor Roll banners next year.
“ERP is all about improving educational equity and promoting career readiness for all students, regardless of their family income, background or ZIP code,” President and CEO James Lanich said. “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 ‘what’s wrong’ to ‘what’s working,’ and encourage others to replicate their success.”
