The Educational Results Partnership (ERP) named five San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) campuses to its 2018–2019 Honor Roll for being high-performing schools that improve student outcomes. The award-winning schools are Hillside and North Verdemont Elementary Schools, Richardson PREP HI and Rodriguez PREP Academy Middle Schools, and Middle College High School.
“Once again, I have the privilege of acknowledging the entire Richardson staff for their dedication and tireless efforts to ensure student success and providing the support needed for students to excel,” said Richardson PREP HI Principal Jenny Paige. “We are one team with one goal and that is to enrich and enhance the lives of our students so they may achieve their goals and feel confident in their path to college and career readiness.”
ERP is a non-profit organization that uses public school achievement data to help improve student outcomes and career readiness. ERP Honor Roll schools have demonstrated consistently 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 considers college readiness.
“I am so thankful that ERP recognized the hard work we are doing at Hillside to make sure all of our scholars are achieving at high levels,” said Hillside Principal Tommie Archuleta. “More importantly, it’s proof that we’re continuing to Make Hope Happen for our Hillside scholars!”
The recognition came as a surprise to everyone since, unlike other awards, schools cannot apply to be on the Honor Roll.
“The Honor Roll is the only school recognition program in California based solely on objective achievement data,” said Marilyn Reznick, ERP’s 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.”
In California, the ERP Honor Roll is supported by numerous businesses and organizations, including the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE), Macy’s, Enterprise Holding Inc., the Auto Club of Southern California, and Wells Fargo.
