On behalf of the South Pointe Middle School community, I want to congratulate you and your children! Our school was recently recognized as a 2017 - 2018 Educational Results Partnership (ERP) Honor Roll School for our high achievement and student success! The Honor Roll 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. South Pointe is one of 1,798 public schools in California to be recognized.
The 2017-2018 ERP Honor Roll utilizes public school student achievement data to identify successful schools and districts. Our school stands above others in the state because of our demonstrated ability to get students to grade level achievement and beyond.
Schools 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.
Here a few important facts about the ERP Honor Roll:
- It's the only award given in collaboration with business leaders
- It includes graduation and dropout rate data
- It establishes a higher bar of performance than any other award
- It is conducted by Educational Results Partnership, a nonprofit organization that maintains the nation’s largest database on student achievement
We did not apply for this award. Our results led them to us! Because of our accomplishment, we will be featured on the ERP Honor Roll website and a banner has been designed for us to hang proudly at our school.
We are thankful for the hard work of our students and teachers here at South Pointe Middle School. This recognition is a testament to the sustained focus on academic results and commitment to student success that our school and parent community have shown over the years.
Again, congratulations and let’s keep up the great work!
Dr. Susan Arzola
