Valley Ranch Elementary in the Coppell Independent School District was recently named to the Texas Business and Education Coalition (TBEC) Honor Roll for 2011. Of more than 8,000 Texas public schools, fewer than 4% will have this distinct honor.
The TBEC Honor Roll is the most prestigious award for sustained, academic excellence in Texas. It recognizes schools that have demonstrated three years of consistent, high performance in all subjects compared to other schools serving similar student populations. TBEC Honor Roll schools have the highest percentage of students performing at the state’s most rigorous standard – Commended – in every subject. And, in this the last year of the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS), the standards are the most demanding they have ever been.
TBEC schools will be recognized in December at an Awards Reception and Dinner in Dallas sponsored by HEB.
