Lamar CISD lands three schools on Honor Roll

May 31, 2018 | Community Relations
Lamar CISD’s Campbell, Jackson and Ray elementary schools have been named to the 2017-2018 Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll for their high achievement and student success.

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. The trio are among 729 public schools in Texas to be recognized. 

Michelle Koerth is the principal at Campbell Elementary, Deana Gonzalez is the principal at Jackson Elementary and Ben Perez is principal at Ray Elementary.

“We are proud to be recognized as an ERP Honor Roll School by educational and  business leaders in Texas,” said Dr. Thomas Randle, Lamar CISD Superintendent of Schools. “Our teachers and administrators are committed to reaching higher levels of academic achievement and continuously improving our practices. We are pleased to see their hard work and dedication translating to positive outcomes for students.”

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. Schools 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. 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.
