HLPUSD Schools named to the 2012 Honor Roll
The 2012 Honor Roll includes HLPUSD schools recognized by the California business community for demonstrating consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. For High Schools, the Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness.
“These schools are the bright spots of excellence in efforts to raise student academic achievement and close persistent achievement gaps,” said Jim Lanich, president of California Business for Education Excellence (CBEE). “By highlighting them, recognizing their achievement and giving them a voice we hope other schools can learn from them and replicate their proven practices throughout the state.”
The business community also recognizes a subset of the Honor Roll that has both high percentages of low-income students and high levels of math and science achievement. These 100 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Honor Roll schools will receive special recognition of their accomplishments. Chevron Corporation provided specific support in the creation of the STEM Honor Roll.
The Honor Roll is the premier school recognition program that uses only academic achievement data showing improved academic growth over time and a closing of the achievement gap.
