The National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA) recognized Mansfield ISD for having two schools make the NCEA Higher Performing Schools List for 2010. Please join us in congratulating the campuses that received the honor and Higher Performing recognition in the following areas:
Cora Spencer Elementary, Writing
Roberta Tipps Elementary, Mathematics
The Higher Performing Schools (formerly known as Just for the Kids Schools) are identified by two measures: academic growth of the students at the school and/or absolute achievement of students using the TAKS’ Commended Performance level.
NCEA’s higher performing methodology controls for school and student demographics allow for an apples-to-apples comparison of school achievement and to demonstrate that with the commitment of educators, all schools can have success no matter the zip code. NCEA provided award certificates to each Higher Performing School and the district.
“We are honored and humbled to receive recognition for our student achievement,” said Elna Davis, Principal at Tipps Elementary. “This would not be possible if it were not for the support of the district and focused efforts of the staff, parents, and students. We will continue to work hard to meet the needs of every student here at Roberta Tipps.”
Hats off to the students, teachers and staff at Spencer and Tipps. Job well done!
