Hollister School District is honored to announce that the Accelerated Achievement Academy, Cerra Vista Elementary, Gabilan Hills Elementary, and Rancho San Justo Middle School have been named to the 2017 – 2018 Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll for high achievement and student success.
The program, sponsored by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE), is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and districts that are improving student outcomes. 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.
Schools 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.
“We are proud of the Accelerated Achievement Academy, Cerra Vista Elementary, Gabilan Hills Elementary, and Rancho San Justo Middle School to be recognized as an ERP Honor Roll School by educational and business leaders in California,” said Dr. Lisa Andrew, superintendent. “Our teachers and administrators are committed to reaching higher levels of academic achievement and continuously improving our practices. We are pleased to see our hard work and dedication translating to positive outcomes for all our students.”
“Educational success must be data-informed,” said Greg Jones, ERP and CBEE board chairman. “These Honor Roll schools and districts are improving student achievement and we have the data to prove it. It’s critical that the business community support and promote educational success as today’s students are tomorrow’s workforce."
“At ERP we are committed to closing achievement gaps and removing educational obstacles for historically disadvantaged students,” said James Lanich, Ph.D., ERP president and CEO. “These bright spot schools and districts are implementing programs and practices that are improving educational equity and accelerating student success. We need to shine a spotlight on their work and encourage others to replicate it.”
In California, the ERP Honor Roll is supported by numerous businesses and organizations, including Automobile Club of Southern California, Macy’s, Wells Fargo, Chevron Corporation and Enterprise Holdings To access the ERP Honor Roll, visit www.edresults.org.
