Congratulations! After an extensive analysis of student data for every public school in California, by the California Honor Roll presented by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE) Robert Semple Elementary has been named an Honor Roll school for 2017-18.
Honor Roll schools will receive recognition in the press as a leader in student achievement and will be provided with a free banner to display on campus. They will also be featured on the website where educators and policymakers seek out high performing schools so that they can replicate success.
The 2017-2018 Honor Roll recognizes public elementary, middle, and high schools that demonstrate consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps. This year, the California Honor Roll recognized 1,798 higher performing schools that are distinguished for their academic achievement and for closing achievement gaps. According to ERP and CBEE, Robert Semple has shown 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.
Congratulations to the Robert Semple Elementary School staff and principal!
