5 KISD Schools Make Texas Honor Roll
A shout out is in order for five Killeen Independent School District campuses that were recognized by the Educational Results Partnership and received the Texas Honor Roll recognition for the 2019-2020 school year.
According to the report from FOX 44 News, the five schools are Clarke Elementary, Clifton Park Elementary, Montague Village Elementary, Venable Village Elementary, and Early College High School.
The five schools honored this year set a new record for KISD, and in all, 3,490 schools were recognized across the country.
With this recognition it's also important to shout out the teachers and staff who work hard every day to get the best out of each student, and of course the students themselves. The hard work is obvious, and a recognition like this is impossible without the efforts the students put forth.
According to Killeen ISD's announcement, the five KISD schools “demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.”
So what is the Educational Results Partnership? According to their website they are a "non-profit organization that applies data science to help improve student outcomes and career readiness throughout the educational system."
Their goal is to give "every learner accesses educational pathways that lead to in-demand, living-wage jobs."
Congrats to each of the five schools named to the Texas Honor Roll and the students, staff, and teachers involved in making this happen. A job very well done.
