Last week the Escondido Union School District announced that Miller and Reidy Creek Elementary Schools have been selected by the National Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) as two of 1,714 public schools in California to receive the title of 2015 Honor Roll school.
Both Miller and Reidy Creek Elementary were honored in the “Star Schools” category.
The Honor Roll is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students. Schools receiving this distinction from leaders in the California academic and business communities have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.
The Honor Roll is comprised of two different awards, the “Star Schools” Award and “Scholar Schools” Award.
Star Schools are those with significant populations of socio-economically disadvantaged students that have shown a significant increase in grade- level proficiency over time. Scholar Schools are schools that are showing significant levels of academic achievement, but do not have a significant socio-economically disadvantaged student population.
“We are so proud that two of our schools are being recognized by leaders in the California business community as Honor Roll schools,” said EUSD Supt. Dr. Luis Ibarra. “Our school teams work tirelessly to keep the focus on student academic achievement and to continuously improve our practices.”
