Bastrop school earns spot on 2016 Texas Honor Roll

The Colorado River Collegiate Academy, Bastrop school district’s early college high school, has been identified as an Honor Roll school by Education Results Partnership and the Institute for Productivity in Education.

“CRCA continues to provide students with a high-performing educational program and early college experience,” Bastrop schools Superintendent Steve Murray said. “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.”

The 2016 Honor Roll recognizes public 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.

“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,” CRCA Principal Martin Conrardy said. “They epitomize our motto: effort creates ability.”

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.
