Partnership Names SBISD Schools to Annual Honor Roll

Five Spring Branch ISD schools were recognized recently as 2017-18 Honor Roll Schools by the nonprofit Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Institute for Productivity Education (IPE).

The Honor Roll recognizes public schools at all levels that show high academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time and reductions in achievement gaps, as well as college and career readiness. In all, 729 Texas campuses were recognized by the partnership and institute. 
SBISD schools and campus principals were honored during the regular August meeting of the SBISD Board of Trustees. Campuses and principals recognized:
  • Frostwood Elementary, Principal Pam Pennington
  • Rummel Creek Elementary, Principal Nancy Harn
  • Wilchester Elementary, Principal Liz Goodman
  • Memorial Middle School, Principal Ellen Green
  • Spring Branch Academic Institute, Director Lynne Barry
All district schools honored earned the “Scholar” distinction, which is given to schools that exhibit high academic achievement, but do not have a significant socio-economically disadvantaged student population.
During the recent Board of Trustees meeting, district Chief Academic Officer Kristin Craft noted that the nonprofit ERP uses data science to help improve student outcomes and college and career readiness, as well as track student achievement over time and close gaps – similar to SBISD’s own key strategy.
The 2017-18 school year reflects the third year that SBISD has had schools in ERP’s Honor Roll.
The two groups – ERP and IPE – partner with business community leaders in a shared mission to ensure that all students are ready to succeed in college and career. Since 2016, the Honor Roll has focused business and academic leaders around a common agenda for high performing public schools resulting in increased college success and economic productivity.
