Educational Results Partnership Announces 2018-2019 Honor Roll

Data Identifies California Schools and Districts Closing
Achievement Gaps

SACRAMENTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#californiahonorroll–Educational Results Partnership (ERP), a nonprofit organization that
applies data science to identify strategies that accelerate student
success, today announced the 2018 – 2019 Honor Roll, recognizing
California public schools, school districts and charter systems that
have outperformed their peers in closing achievement gaps among
higher-poverty student populations. The organization identified 1,834
schools and 26 districts based on the nation’s largest database on
student achievement, publicly available at www.edresults.org.

Schools and districts that appear on the Honor Roll have demonstrated
consistently high levels of student achievement, improvement in
achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among
student populations. The selection process also includes measures of
college readiness for high schools. The program further recognizes STEM
(Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) schools with a high
percentage of low-income students that have demonstrated superior
achievement.

“The Honor Roll is the only school recognition program in California
based solely on objective achievement data,” said Marilyn Reznick, ERP
board chair. “Schools don’t even know they’ve earned the honor until we
tell them. Our goal is to guide other educators to data-informed best
practices for raising student achievement.”

ERP compiles the California Honor Roll each year under the sponsorship
of the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE). The
program is part of a national effort to recognize successful educational
systems and promote solutions that are shown to improve student outcomes.

“ERP is all about improving educational equity and promoting career
readiness for all students, regardless of their family income,
background or ZIP code,” said James Lanich, Ph.D., ERP president and
CEO. “These Honor Roll schools and districts are living proof that our
students can succeed when schools are committed to removing educational
obstacles and accelerating student success. By focusing attention on
these bright spots among our schools, we hope to change the conversation
from ‘what’s wrong’ to ‘what’s working,’ and encourage others to
replicate their success.”

In California, the Honor Roll is supported by numerous businesses and
organizations, including Automobile Club of Southern California, Macy’s,
Wells Fargo, Chevron Corporation and Enterprise Holdings Foundation. “We
value the support of our business partners,” Dr. Lanich said. “Employers
have a big stake in improving outcomes for students who will make up the
workforce of the future.”
