Conroe ISD honors schools with state, national accolades
The CISD Board of Trustees recognized district schools named as either a TEA Distinguished Performance School, National Center for Educational Achievement High Performing School or a Texas Business and Educators Coalition Honor Roll School during the April board meeting.
After review by the NCLB Program Coordination officials from TEA, Ford, Giesinger and Houser elementary schools were named Title I, Part A Distinguished Performance School Award recipients. To qualify, a school must earn Title I, Part A, status for the past three years; 40 percent or more of the student population was low-income; met Adequate yearly progress the past two years; achieved a campus rating of Exemplary last year; and achieved a campus rating of Exemplary or Recognized for the previous two years.
Conroe ISD NCEA Higher Performing Schools Awards were given to Buckalew Elementary, Deretchin K-6 Elementary, Tough K-6 Elementary, Collins Intermediate, Mitchell Intermediate, McCullough Junior High, and Moorhead Junior High. NCEA identifies high-performing schools based on one of two measures: academic growth of students at the school and/or absolute achievement of students at the school.
TBEC Honor Roll Schools include Buckalew Elementary, Deretchin Elementary, Tough Elementary K-6 and Mitchell Intermediate. TBEC analyzes three years of performance data for every public school in Texas to identify Honor Roll schools, looking for a high percentage of students meeting state standards on every TAKS test for three consecutive years. Honor Roll schools also have the highest percentage of students performing at the state's most rigorous standard, Commended, in every subject.
