Conroe ISD was selected by the Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Institute for Productivity in Education (IPE) as one of nine public school districts in Texas to receive the title of 2015 Honor Roll District.
The Honor Roll is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools districts and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students. Districts receive this distinction from leaders in the Texas academic and business communities by consistently demonstrating high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.
“The connection between economic and educational productivity is very real and critically important,” says Charles Miller, chairman of the Institute for Productivity in Education (IPE). “Shining a light on schools that work is a great first step, but we must also learn more about their financial data if we want the biggest bang for our education buck. With accurate academic and financial data, Texas can build a system that rewards productivity by giving schools the flexibility to reallocate resources for maximum student benefit. The Honor Roll is a powerful start.”
“This is a testament to the relentless focus on results for students that [Conroe ISD], your staff and your peers have shown over the years. It is also a strong statement about how success is spreading in public schools across the state,” stated James S. Lanich, Ph.D, President & CEO of Educational Results Partnership.
In addition to the District being named to the Texas Honor Roll, the following 17 Conroe ISD campuses were recognized at Honor Roll Schools: Buckalew Elementary School, Bush Elementary School, Collins Intermediate, David Elementary School, Deretchin Elementary School, Ford Elementary School, Galatas Elementary School, Giesinger Elementary School, Hailey Elementary School, Irons Junior High, McCullough Junior High, Mitchell Intermediate, Oak Ridge Elementary School, Powell Elementary School, Tough Elementary School, Vogel Intermediate, and Wilkinson Elementary School.
