LISD campuses named 'Higher Performing Schools'

Provided by Lubbock ISD

Four Lubbock ISD elementary campuses and one middle school campus were recently named to the National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA) list of 2011 NCEA Higher Performing Schools.

The elementary campuses are Roy Roberts, Whiteside and Roscoe Wilson.  Hutchinson is the middle school campus. 

NCEA identifies higher performing schools based on two measures: above-predicted growth based on a value-added analysis, or an above-predicted percentage on continuously enrolled students scoring at the Commended level on the 2009-2011 Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS).

 LISD Chief Academic Officer Kelly Trlica said, "This is a great honor for these schools because they are being compared to schools statewide with similar demographics.  It demonstrates a high level of rigorous instruction in preparing all students for college."

The National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA) is a department of ACT, Inc., a not-for-profit organization committed to helping people achieve education and workplace success.
