The Etiwanda School District has been selected by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) as one of 20 public school districts in California to receive the title of 2016 Honor Roll School District.
Etiwanda is one of just a handful of districts in the state to have earned this recognition all four years it has been awarded.
Six schools have also been selected from 1,866 public schools in California to receive the title of 2016 Honor Roll school. The schools are Cecilia Lucero Solorio Elementary, East Heritage Elementary, Etiwanda Intermediate, Heritage Intermediate, Perdew Elementary, and Terra Vista Elementary.
The Honor Roll is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students.
Schools receiving this distinction from leaders in the California academic and business communities have demonstrated 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. The Honor Roll is comprised of two different awards, the “Star Schools” Award and “Scholar Schools” Award.
“We are so proud to be recognized by education and business leaders in California as an Honor Roll School District,” said Dr. Shawn Judson, the Etiwanda superintendent. “Our teachers and administrators work tirelessly to keep the focus on high expectations and student academic achievement and to continuously improve our practices. This hard work and dedication is paying off for all of our students.”
“We are proud to recognize those schools and school districts who are succeeding in putting their students on a path of productivity that not only leads to success in the classroom, but also prepares them to contribute to and benefit from a more productive economy,” said Greg Jones, ERP and CBEE Board chairman. “Leadership from both education and the business community is critical to linking success from one system to the next, and ensuring that students have the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve a college degree and the financial security of a living wage job.”
