Educational Results Partnership (ERP) named the White Settlement ISD Fine Arts Academy a 2018-19 Texas Honor Roll School. The Honor Roll recognizes public elementary, middle, and high schools that demonstrate high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps.
This year, the Texas Honor Roll recognized 855 higher performing schools that are distinguished for their academic achievement and closing achievement gaps.
Through national research, ERP identified a common set of success factors in higher performing Honor Roll schools and districts.
These include clear, specific learning objectives aligned to college and career readiness along with evidence-based instructional practices; establishing system-wide mission of college and career readiness for all students; investing in human capital; maintaining data and assessment systems to monitor school and student performance; and deploying resources and guidance to support schools' efforts to prepare all students for college and career.
