RISD and Seven Elementary Campuses Named to Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll

Richardson ISD is just one of seven school districts in Texas named to the 2017–18 Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll for its high achievement and student success. The district also boasted 10 elementary schools — Big Springs, Brentfield, Dartmouth, Jess Harben, MST, Mohawk, Moss Haven, Prairie Creek, Springridge and Yale — among the 729 campuses named to the list.

The Educational Results Program, sponsored by the Institute for Productivity in Education (IPE), is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and districts that are improving student outcomes.

“We are proud to be recognized as an ERP Honor Roll School District by educational and business leaders in Texas,” said Dr. Jeannie Stone, RISD superintendent. “Our teachers and administrators are committed to reaching higher levels of academic achievement and continuously improving our practices. To see our hard work and translating to positive outcomes for all our students reinforces that dedication.”

The 2017–2018 Honor Roll is developed by Educational Results Partnership (ERP), a nonprofit organization that applies data science to help improve student outcomes and career readiness. ERP maintains the nation’s largest database on student achievement and utilizes this data to identify higher-performing schools and districts.

School districts that receive the ERP Honor Roll distinction have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.

“Educational success must be data-informed,” said Greg Jones, ERP board chairman. “These Honor Roll schools and districts are improving student achievement and we have the data to prove it. It’s critical that the business community support and promote educational success as today’s students are tomorrow’s workforce.”

“At ERP we are committed to closing achievement gaps and removing educational obstacles for historically disadvantaged students,” said James Lanich, Ph.D., ERP president and CEO. “These bright spot schools and districts are implementing programs and practices that are improving educational equity and accelerating student success. We need to shine a spotlight on their work and encourage others to replicate it.”
