Herbert C. Green Middle School Recognized for High Achievement in Student Success

California Schools Selected for Prestigious Honor Roll Issued By a National Campaign of Business and Education Leaders

Herbert C. Green Middle School in the Mother Lode Union School District in El Dorado County announced on April 18 that our middle school had been selected by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE). Herbert Green is one of 1,866 public schools in California to receive the title of 2016 Honor Roll School District.

The Honor Roll is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and highlight successful practices that improve outcomes for students. School districts receiving this distinction have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. For school districts with high schools, the Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness.

“We are so proud to be recognized by education and business leaders in California as an Honor Roll School District,” said Superintendent Dr. Marcy Guthrie. “Our teachers and administrators work tirelessly to keep the focus on high expectations and student academic achievement and to continuously improve our practices. This hard work and dedication are paying off for all of our students, no matter their background. Because our team is committed to the successful education of every student, this is not our first time on the Honor Roll. In 2013, Indian Creek Elementary School was also recognized.”

“We are proud to recognize those schools and school districts who are succeeding in putting their students on a path of productivity that not only leads to success in the classroom but also prepares them to contribute to and benefit from a more productive economy,” said Greg Jones, ERP, and CBEE Board Chairman. “Leadership from both education and the business community is critical to linking success from one system to the next, and ensuring that students have the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve a college degree and the financial security of a living wage job.”

“The Honor Roll proves that many schools are doing well, even those with high numbers of historically disadvantaged students,” said Jim Lanich, ERP President and CEO.  “These schools are clearly doing something right and all schools, no matter what zip code they are in, can achieve this kind of success. School and school district leadership have a great opportunity to find out what’s working at these Honor Roll schools and replicate it.”

The California Honor Roll program is made possible with generous support from numerous businesses and organizations including Automobile Club of Southern California, Macy’s, Wells Fargo, Enterprise Holdings Foundation, and several private foundations. Chevron Corporation provides support for the STEM Honor Roll.
