Cypress Schools Recognized for High Achievement and Student Success!
The Cypress School District is pleased to announce that A.E. Arnold, Clara J. King, Margaret Landell, Steve Luther, and Juliet Morris Elementary Schools have been named to the 2018/19 Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll for high levels of achievement and student success.

Sponsored by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence, the Honor Roll program is part of a national effort to identify high performing schools and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students. Schools receiving this distinction have consistently demonstrated high levels of student academic achievement over time and have reduced the achievement gap among student groups.
 
"It's our mission in the Cypress School District to inspire and empower every student, every moment, for every opportunity. Our teachers and staff are committed to meeting our students where they are, nurturing their gifts and talents, and helping them achieve success. We are extremely proud of all our schools, and we are honored to have their accomplishments and good work recognized by the business community," said Anne Silavs, Superintendent.
 
The Campaign for Business and Education Excellence utilizes data from the Educational Results Partnership to identify Honor Roll schools. The organization charts the pathways that lead to academic and career success. Through national research, they have identified a common set of success factors in high performing schools. These include clear, specific learning objectives aligned to college and career readiness; evidence-based instructional practices; a system-wide mission of promoting college and career readiness for all students; data and assessment systems to monitor student performance; an investment in human capital; and the distribution of resources to support student success. It is their goal to ensure that more students are equipped to enter the workforce with the skills today’s global economy demands.
 
“The Honor Roll is the only school recognition program in California based solely on objective achievement data,” said Marilyn Reznick, ERP’s board chair. “Schools don’t even know they’ve earned the honor until we tell them. Our goal is to guide other educators to data-informed best practices for raising student achievement.”
 
The annual Honor Roll award is made possible by support from numerous businesses and organizations, including the Campaign for Business and Educational Excellence, Macy's, Wells Fargo, Enterprise Holdings, and the Automobile Club of Southern California.
