EISD received notification from Region 7 that Eustace Primary and Eustace Intermediate have been selected as Title I, Part A Distinguished Schools. Out of all of the schools (not just districts, but actual schools) in the state, only 501 were selected for this honor. In Region 7, a total of 23 schools were designated as Distinguished Schools. EISD had two of them.
To be selected as a Distinguished School, a school had to meet the following criteria:
• Title I, Part A campus in 10-11, 11-12, and 12-13.
• Maintained a campus residing population of 40% or more low income in 12-13.
• Met AYP in 2011 and 2012.
• Achieved a campus rating in Spring 2012 of Exemplary.
• Achieved a campus rating in Spring of 2011 of either Exemplary or Recognized.
• Achieved a campus rating in Spring of 2010 of either Exemplary or Recognized.
I consider this a great honor for these campuses and for our district. Congratulations to the students, parents, and faculty on achieving this honor.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
