Eight El Paso ISD Schools Named to National Honor Roll

On Friday, EPISD announced that eight schools have been named to the 2017 – 2018 Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll for their high achievement and student success.

Green, Hawkins, Lamar, Polk, Tom Lea, Western Hills and Zavala Elementary Schools, as well as Transmountain Early College High School were named to the Honor Roll based on their academic achievements.

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 schools are amongth the 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. ERP maintains the nation’s largest database on student achievement and utilizes this data to identify higher-performing schools and districts.

According to EPISD officials, “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

Two Elementary Schools To Get School Zone Flashing Lights

The City of El Paso Capital Improvement Department will begin installing school zone safety lights at two elementary schools on September 19th, 2016.

The school zone flashing lights will be installed near Johnson Elementary, at 499 Cabaret Drive and Lamar Elementary, at 1440 E. Cliff Drive.

The work is part of a School Zone Safety project funded by the City of El Paso and the Texas Department of Transportation. When completed in the summer of 2017, the projects will have provided ten campuses across El Paso with school zone flashing lights, ADA compliant pedestrian ramps, as well as appropriate signage and markings which will alert motorists of the school zones, and draw attention to pedestrians and school zone speed limits.

The campuses programmed to receive the flashing lights are: Benito Martinez, Jane Hambric, Paul Moreno, Beall, Park, Dr. Nixon, Johnson, Lamar, Kohlberg and Vilas. The installation of the equipment at the Jane Hambric and Benito Martinez campuses is complete, while work continues at Paul Moreno, Beall, Dr. Nixon and Park Elementary Schools.

The work is a part of the City of El Paso’s commitment to enhance El Paso’s regional comprehensive transportation system.

Students at 59 EPISD Campuses will get Free School Lunch, Breakfast

Students 59 El Paso Independent School District campuses will get free school lunches and breakfasts thanks to national program aimed at providing more nutritious meals students.

Laura Durán, EPISD’s Director of Food and Nutrition Services, announced that the District once again will participate in the Community Eligibility Program from the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs.

The Community Eligibility Program, or CEP, provides breakfast and lunch to all children at no cost and eliminates the collection of meal application for free, reduced-priced and paid students meals.

“The application process can be cumbersome for some families, and we know that there are many of our schools that will have a majority of the students qualify for free or reduced-priced meals,” Durán said. “This program gives us the opportunity to reach as many students as we can in order to give them a nutritious meal that will help them be ready for instruction.”

The CEP targets schools with high volumes of students who would already qualify for free or reduced-priced meals based on income or other eligibility requirements.

The schools participating the program are:

• Elementary Schools: About Face, Alta Vista, Aoy, Barron, Beall, Bliss, Bonham, Bradley, Burleson, Burnet, Clardy, Clendenin, Coldwell, Collins, Cooley, Crockett, Crosby, Douglass, Dowell, Fannin, Moye, Hawkins, Hillside, Johnson, Lamar, Lee, Logan, Moreno, Newman, Park, Putnam, Powell, Rivera, Roberts, Rusk, Schuster, Stanton, Travis, Whitaker and Zavala.

• Middle Schools: Armendariz, Bassett, Canyon Hills, LaFarelle, Charles, Guillen, Henderson, Magoffin, Morehead, Terrace Hills, Wiggs.

• High Schools: Austin, Bowie, Chapin, Irvin, Jefferson, Telles Academy and the College, Career and Technology Academy.

Students attending schools not participating in the CEP may qualify free and reduced-price meals through the traditional application process. Each school in EPISD, as well as the Food and Nutrition Services Department, has a copy of the eligibility rules and guidelines policy that are used to determine participation.

Applications may be picked up at each campus, or they may be downloaded from the EPISD website at www.episd.org under the Food and Nutrition Services Department. Applications are also available in at the Food and Nutrition Services office at 6531 Boeing.
