Collegiate Prep, Collegiate Academy and Cedar Hill Collegiate High School are listed in the 2017 - 2018 Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll for high achievement and student success. This exclusive list represents less than 10 percent of Texas public schools. 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.
Cedar Hill ISD Superintendent Billy Snow, Ed.D., said the honor is attributed to the district’s commitment to rigorous coursework and closing performance gaps. “Our teachers and administrators are committed to reaching higher levels of academic achievement and growth; this award honors both,” he said. “This recognition is another confirmation that CHISD is the leading choice for education in Cedar Hill.”
The 2017 - 2018 Honor Roll is developed by Educational Results Partnership (ERP), a nonprofit organization that applies data to help improve student outcomes and career readiness. ERP maintains the nation’s largest database on student achievement 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. For high schools, the ERP Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness.
“Educational success must be data-informed,” said Greg Jones, ERP 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 supports and promotes educational success; today’s students are tomorrow’s workforce.”
In Texas the ERP Honor Roll program is supported by numerous businesses and organizations, including the Texas Business Leadership Council, American Automobile Association (AAA) Texas, Macy’s, Wells Fargo, Chevron Corporation and Enterprise Holdings Foundation.
