The Educational Results Partnership, a “non-profit organization that applies data science to help improve student outcomes and career readiness throughout the educational system,” has named six local LAUSD schools to its 2018-2019 Honor Roll Celebrating Achievement-Gap Closing Schools and Districts.
The Honor Roll program, according to the ERP website, “is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and districts that are improving student outcomes” and claims to be the only school recognition program in the state that makes awards based solely on student achievement outcomes, as well as the only educational awards given in collaboration with local business leaders.
“Schools that receive the ERP Honor Roll distinction,” says the ERP, “have demonstrated consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.”
Our local honorees are:
GALA posted about the accolade on its Facebook page this morning, saying “We are proud of this achievement, in particular, because GALA is only 3 years old …The Honor Roll is a valuable resource for all schools to identify successful peers and learn about best practices that are improving student achievement.”
For more information about each school, and the achievements that resulted in the honor, see https://dataportal.edresults.org/Metrics/HonorRoll. More information about how the results were calculated can be found at https://dataportal.edresults.org/media/honor_roll_2019/CA/2019%20California%20Honor%20Roll%20Methodology.pdf
And finally, if you’re interested in even more data, the ERP website also offers more information on K-12 school achievement, the labor market and academic achievement, student success factors, and academic achievement by young men of color. The goal, says the organization, is to improve “academic and workforce outcomes for all, including students of color, foster youth, and students in high-poverty regions.”
Congratulations to our local honorees!
