Ten El Paso ISD schools named to Honor Roll

Ten El Paso Independent School District campuses were named to the 2018-19 Honor Roll by the Educational Results Partnership, a national educational nonprofit.

“EPISD continues to set the pace in academic achievement in the region,” Superintendent Juan E. Cabrera said. “Students in every corner of the District are reaching new heights in their learning, and our teachers are demonstrating that our innovative approaches to education are working.”

Cielo Vista, Hawkins, Hughey, Lamar, Mesita, Milam, Polk and Western Hills elementary schools, along with Silva Health Magnet and Transmountain Early College high schools were among the 855 public schools in Texas to be included in the Honor Roll.

Schools on the list demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in student outcomes over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.

For high schools, the Honor Roll also recognized campuses with high levels of college readiness.

The Educational Results Partnership performed national research and identified common sets of learning objectives and college- and career-readiness factors among high-performing schools that include:

  • Evidence-based instruction
  • Defined college- and career-readiness practices
  • Human capital investments
  • Production and monitoring of student performance data
  • Training and resourcing of staff to help student preparation.

All recognized schools will receive a banner to display on campus, and each school will be included in an online Honor Roll database with detailed information on student performance.  The list can be viewed at www.edresults.org.

El Paso ISD Ranked Third in State for High-Performing Schools; 11 Campuses Honored

According to new figures released by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), El Paso Independent School District (EPISD) has 11 campuses that earned all available distinction designations available to them during the 2018 accountability ratings period.

“Our focus on Active Learning has helped us reach unprecedented goals in student outcomes,” said Superintendent Juan Cabrera. “EPISD is one of the best school districts in the state, and our students and teachers are showing that innovation in the classroom works.”

With 11 total campuses on the list, EPISD has the most high-performing schools in the region and is third in the state for districts with schools earning all available distinctions given by the Texas Education Agency this year.  Only two school districts – Houston and Dallas ISDs — have more schools with all distinctions in the state.

The distinctions show students in those campuses are performing at elevated levels in all tested areas, and show academic growth that puts them on track to be college and career ready by the time they graduate high school.

The schools that earned all academic distinctions are: El Paso, Silva Health Magnet and Chapin high schools; Wiggs Middle School; and Hughey, Lamar, Milam, Collins, Cielo Vista, Polk and Green elementary schools.

“Earning one or several campus-level distinctions is notable and should be applauded by a community as an outstanding achievement,” Texas Education Commissioner Mike Morath said. “For a school to earn every potential distinction applicable to their campus is difficult, but a reflection of some truly amazing work by our educators.”

The distinctions include measurements of proficiency and growth based on student performance on the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Skills (STAAR) and End of Course exams.

The distinctions measure academic achievement in English, math, science and social studies, as well as growth in categories like college readiness and closing learning gaps.
