Two BISD schools receive state recognition
Two Bryan ISD elementary schools have been named to the Texas Business and Education Coalition (TBEC) Honor Roll for 2009.
Johnson Elementary and Sam Houston Elementary are among 254 of the state's most outstanding public schools selected for the honor.
Being named a TBEC Honor Roll school is the most prestigious academic award a Texas public school can achieve.
The list represents less than 4% of all public schools in Texas and includes 13 High Schools, 35 middle schools and 206 elementary schools. In analyzing every public school in Texas TBEC considers only the school’s commended performance, the state’s highest standard for academic achievement and sets specific targets for schools based on grades served and student demographics.
The 2009 standards were by far the toughest in the 10 year history of the award. All schools were expected to improve their commended performance from 2008 and every school was required to have a minimum of 20% of students tested performing at the commended level on ALL tests for 2009.
TBEC will recognize all the Honor Roll schools on Monday, November 9, 2009 at an Awards Reception and Dinner in San Antonio sponsored by HEB and IBM.
Johnson Elementary is a National Blue Ribbon campus and recently received an Exemplary rating from the Texas Education Agency. Sam Houston Elementary is also a TEA Exemplary campus.
