(Bastrop) – Bastrop ISD is pleased to announce that its early college high school, Colorado River Collegiate Academy (CRCA), has been identified as an Honor Roll school by Educational Results Partnership and the Institute for Productivity in Education.
The 2016 Honor Roll recognizes public elementary, middle, and high schools that demonstrate consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time, and/or reduction in achievement gaps. At the high school level, the recognition also considers measures of college readiness.
“CRCA continues to provide students with a high-performing educational program and early college experience,” said Steve Murray, Bastrop ISD Superintendent. “We appreciate the work of those talented educators and the dedication of our students to push themselves toward academic excellence. Once again, they are recognized as a model.”
CRCA is one of 727 schools across the nation distinguished for academic achievement and closing performance gaps. Some of the success factors Educational Results Partnership considers in its evaluation are: clear, specific learning objectives aligned to college and career readiness; evidence-based instructional practices; a culture of college and career preparedness; and effective monitoring of school and student performance
“The performance of our students at Colorado River Collegiate Academy is rooted in the dedication of our teachers to developing college-ready, academically responsible students,” said CRCA Principal Martin Conrardy. “They epitomize our motto: effort creates ability.”
Educational Results Partnership is a Sacramento-based nonprofit focused on tracking data and showcasing high-performing schools. Other partners include the Institute for Productivity in Education, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Hellman Foundation, Chevron, and State Farm.
