Ten schools from the Ysleta Independent School District were named to the Texas 2015 Honor Roll by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Institute for Productivity in Education (IPE), the most of all school districts in El Paso County.
The YISD campuses named as 2015 Honor Roll schools include: Alicia R. Chacon International, Del Norte Heights Elementary, Edgemere Elementary, Glen Cove Elementary, Mission Valley Elementary, Ramona Elementary, Scotsdale Elementary, Eastwood Middle, Ranchland Hills Middle, and Valle Verde Early College High.
“We have come a long way as a school district to becoming the premier choice for public education in the El Paso region,” said YISD Superintendent Xavier De La Torre. “This prestigious recognition from ERP is a testament of the hard work and dedication of our administration and faculty to serve the children of this community.”
The Honor Roll is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools list and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students. Schools receiving this distinction have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.
For districts with high schools, the Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness. In total, 713 Texas schools were recognized by ERP and IPE.
