Five Dublin Schools Named to Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll

Amador, Dougherty, Fallon, Green, and Kolb Recognized for High Achievement in Student Success by a National Campaign of Business and Education Leaders

Dublin, CA – June 4, 2019 – The Dublin Unified School Districts today announced that Amador Elementary, Dougherty Elementary, Fallon Middle, Green Elementary, and Kolb Elementary schools have been named to the 2018-19 Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll for their high achievement and student success. The program, sponsored by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE), is part of a national effort to identify high-performing schools and districts that are improving student outcomes. The Dublin schools were five of 1,834 public schools in California to be recognized.

The 2018-19 Honor Roll is developed by Educational Results Partnership (ERP), a nonprofit organization that applies data science to help improve student outcomes and career readiness. ERP maintains the nation’s largest database on student achievement and utilizes this data to identify high-performing schools and districts. Schools that receive the ERP Honor Roll distinction have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. For high schools, the ERP Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness.

“The level of academic achievement in Dublin is nothing short of amazing,” says Dr. Dave Marken, interim superintendent of the Dublin Unified School District. “This recognition is a fantastic note to end the school year on. Our teachers and staff work hard to create a nurturing, safe, and inclusive environment for learning, and the results are clear. Well done Dublin.”

“The Honor Roll is the only school recognition program in California based solely on objective achievement data,” says Marilyn Reznick, board chair of the ERP. “Schools don’t even know they’ve earned the honor until we tell them. Our goal is to guide other educators to data-informed best practices for raising student achievement.”

“ERP is all about improving educational equity and promoting career readiness for all students, regardless of their family income, background or ZIP code,” said James Lanich, Ph.D., president and CEO of ERP. “These Honor Roll schools and districts are living proof that our students can succeed when schools are committed to removing educational obstacles and accelerating student success. By focusing attention on these bright spots among our schools, we hope to change the conversation from ‘what’s wrong’ to ‘what’s working,’ and encourage others to replicate their success.”
