Officials with the Driscoll Independent School District recently announced the Driscoll Elementary and Middle School have been named to the 2018-19 Honor Roll for high achievement in student success. The program, presented by Educational Results Partnership, is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and districts that are improving student outcomes. Driscoll ISD is one of 855 public schools in Texas to be recognized.
Schools that receive the 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.
“We are honored to be recognized by educational and business leaders as an Honor Roll School,” said Lynn Landenberger, campus principal. “We are continually striving to increase academic achievement and improve educational outcomes for all of our students. Our teachers and administrators are fully committed, and we are thrilled to see their hard work and dedication produce such positive results.”
“The Honor Roll is the only school and district recognition program in Texas based solely on objective achievement data,” said Marilyn Reznick, ERP board chair. “Our goal is to guide other educators to data-informed best practices for raising student achievement.”
“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, ERP hopes to change the conversation from ‘what’s wrong’ to ‘what’s working,’ and encourage others to replicate their success,” said James Lanich, Ph.D., ERP president and CEO.
