Nine Socorro Independent School District campuses were recognized as 2015 Texas Honor Roll schools by the Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Institute for Educational Productivity (IPE) for their outstanding leadership and student achievement.
Team SISD campuses being honored as Texas Star Honor Roll schools are:
Elementary Schools: Dr. Sue Shook, Elfida P. Chavez, Loma Verde and Lujan-Chavez
Middle Schools: John Drugan, Col. John O. Ensor, SPC. Rafael Hernando III and Montwood Middle
Mission Early College High School.
The campuses were among 713 public schools in Texas to receive the title during the 2015 inaugural year.
Elfida P. Chavez Elementary was also one of two schools in the region to be recognized with a special STEM designation for its high performance.
“Being named a 2015 Texas Honor Roll School is a huge accomplishment earned by the students, staff, and community at each of our nine campuses selected,” said SISD Superintendent Jose Espinoza. “It is a well-deserved honor that speaks volumes of Team SISD’s unwavering dedication to high student success.”
The Texas Honor Roll is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students.
National research has identified a common set of success factors in higher performing Honor Roll schools and districts, said ERP President & CEO James S. Lanich, PhD. The factors include clear, specific learning objectives aligned to college and career readiness, evidence-based instructional practices, establishing system-wide mission of college and career readiness for all students; investing in human capital; and deploying resources and guidance to support schools’ efforts to prepare all students for college and career.
The SISD Texas Honor Roll schools will receive a banner to display at their campus and will be featured on the EPR website. To view the list of Texas Honor Roll schools, visit http://edresults.org/HonorRoll/HonorRoll?State=TX
