Six Harlingen CISD schools were named to the 2017-2018 Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll for their high achievement and student success.
Receiving the honors were Bowie Elementary School, Dishman Elementary School, Early College High School, Harlingen School of Health Professions, Lee Means Elementary School, and Zavala Elementary School.
“We are super proud of our campuses that were named in the 2017 Texas Honor Roll. It is such an honor to be recognized among the best in the state for academic achievement,” Superintendent Dr. Art Cavazos said. “Our teachers and administrators hold high expectations for our students and constantly encourage them to achieve more. This award is a testament to the hard work that takes place in our classrooms every day.”
The 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. These HCISD schools are among 729 public schools in Texas to be recognized.
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. Schools that receive the ERP Honor Roll distinction have demonstrated consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. For high schools, the ERP Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness.
In Texas, the ERP Honor Roll program is supported by numerous businesses and organizations, including the Texas Business Leadership Council, American Automobile Association (AAA) Texas, Macy’s, Wells Fargo, Chevron Corporation and Enterprise Holdings Foundation.
