ETIWANDA SCHOOL DISTRICT AND TWELVE ETIWANDA SCHOOLS

NAMED TO EDUCATIONAL RESULTS PARTNERSHIP HONOR ROLL

California School District and Schools recognized for High Achievement in Student Success

by a National Campaign of Business and Education Leaders

June 17, 2019 (Etiwanda) – Etiwanda School District announced today that it has been named to the 2018 - 2019 Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll for its high achievement in student success. The program, sponsored by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE), is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and districts that are improving student outcomes. Etiwanda is one of 26 public school districts in California to be recognized. Twelve (12) schools have also been selected from 1,798 public schools in California to receive the title of 2019 Honor Roll school. The schools are: Carlton P. Lightfoot Elementary, Cecilia Lucero Solorio Elementary, Day Creek Intermediate, East Heritage Elementary, Etiwanda Intermediate, Grapeland Elementary, Heritage Intermediate, Perdew Elementary, Summit Intermediate, Terra Vista Elementary, West Heritage Elementary and Windows Elementary.

The 2018 - 2019 Honor Roll is developed by Educational Results Partnership (ERP), a nonprofit organization that applies data science to help improve student outcomes and career readiness. ERP maintains the nation’s largest database on student achievement and utilizes this data to identify higher-performing schools and districts. School districts 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 districts with high schools, the ERP Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness.

“We are honored to be recognized by education and business leaders in California as an Honor Roll School District,” said Dr. Shawn Judson, school district superintendent. “We continually strive to increase academic achivement and improve educational outcomes for all of our students. Our teachers, adminstrators and support staff are fully commited and it is exciting to see their hard work and dedication produce such positive results.”

“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 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.
