More than 30 Dallas ISD schools named to Texas Honor Roll list


More than 30 Dallas ISD schools have been named to the 2017-2018 Educational Results Partnership (ERP) Honor Roll, also known as the Texas Honor Roll. 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. Dallas ISD is one of seven public school districts in Texas to be acknowledged.

This year, the Texas Honor Roll recognized 729 public schools for demonstrating consistently higher levels of student academic achievement, improvement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps among ethnic minority and socioeconomically disadvantaged students. Dallas ISD had 31 schools named, and seven of which were honored in two areas.

Schools considered were categorized in three levels. Star, which recognizes schools that are higher performing, higher in the number of economically disadvantaged students, and closing the achievement gap. Schools without significant levels of low-income students and also help achievement gaps close are identified as Scholar. Lastly, Honor Roll schools that are high poverty, and achieve higher performance in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are recognized with a special STEM designation.

The recognition also includes college and career readiness measures for high schools that were studied. Of equal importance, administrators of the Honor Roll suggest this is the only school recognition program in Texas using student achievement outcomes as the only criteria.
