This is the image for the news article titled District named to Star Honor Roll againFor the fourth straight year, Los Fresnos CISD has been selected as an Honor Roll School District by the Educational Results Partnership (ERP).

The selection is the result of an extensive analysis of student data for every public school and school district in Texas.

Los Fresnos CISD was one of only six school districts in Texas named to the Honor Roll. The District was one of only three to have received the honor all four years since the inception of the award in Texas in 2015-16.

The other two school districts to receive the award four straight years are also in the Rio Grande Valley –– Roma ISD and Sharyland ISD.

The six Los Fresnos CISD schools named Honor Roll Schools represents 43 percent of the total number of campuses.

Four elementary schools – Laureles, Lopez-Riggins, Olmito, and Rancho Verde elementary schools – were among those receiving the school awards. Two of them – Olmito and Rancho Verde – were also named STEM honor roll schools.

Two middle schools – Liberty Memorial and Los Cuates – were also named to the Honor Roll.

They are among 855 statewide higher-performing schools that are distinguished for their academic achievement and for closing achievement gaps.

"This achievement speaks highly of the work of our campus leadership and the high expectations of an entire community," Superintendent Gonzalo Salazar said. "The honor validates the efforts of our teachers and administrators who work with a relentless focus on helping students achieve their full potential. "

The 2018-19 Honor Roll includes public elementary, K-8, and high schools that are recognized for demonstrating consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps. For high schools, Honor Roll recognition includes high college readiness in students.

Now in its fourth year, the Texas Honor Roll recognized higher performing, higher poverty schools that are distinguished for their academic achievement and for closing achievement gaps.

“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, 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.”
