Honor Roll District 2017



SHARYLAND ISD RECOGNIZED FOR HIGH ACHIEVEMENT IN STUDENT SUCCESS

Sharyland ISD has been named 2017-18 Honor Roll School District for its high achievement and student success.  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.  Sharyland ISD is one of 7 public school districts in Texas to be recognized.
             
The 2017-2018 Honor Roll recognizes public elementary, middle, and high schools that demonstrate consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps. For high schools, Honor Roll recognition includes high college readiness in students. Nine SISD schools, out of 481 schools in Texas, were named STAR Honor Roll Schools – Sharyland High School, Sharyland Advanced Academic Academy, B.L. Gray Junior High, Sharyland North Junior High, Harry Shimotsu Elementary, John H. Shary Elementary, Lloyd & Dolly Bentsen Elementary, Romulo D. Martinez Elementary and Ruben Hinojosa Elementary.  Out of 56 schools in Texas, three SISD schools also received a special STEM Schools designation because they scored among the top 10 percent of Honor Roll Schools in the areas of math and science – Harry Shimotsu Elementary, Ruben Hinojosa Elementary and Sharyland North Junior High.
 
 “Once again, for the third year in a row, I’m proud to announce that Sharyland ISD is one of the top districts in the State.  Texas Honor Roll recognition is based on student academic performance and we plan to continue the tradition of excellence,” said Dr. Robert O’Connor, Superintendent of Schools

The 2017 - 2018 Honor Roll is developed by Educational Results Partnership (ERP), a nonprofit organization that applies data science to help improve student outcomes and career readiness. ERP maintains the nation’s largest database on student achievement and utilizes this data to identify higher-performing schools and districts. School districts that receive the ERP Honor Roll distinction have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.  For districts with high schools, the ERP Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness.  To access the ERP Honor Roll, visit www.edresults.org.
