Two Whitehouse Schools were recognized for their achievements during the 2013-2014 school year by the Texas Education Agency. TEA recognized 457 campuses statewide. The TEA has named these top schools “Reward Schools” with classifications in either “high performing” or “high-progress.”

Cain Elementary and Brown Elementary were recognized as “Reward Schools” by the TEA. Cain earned recognition in both categories, high-performing and high-progress. Brown earned recognition in high-performance.

A high-performing Reward School is a Title 1 school with distinctions based on reading and math performance on the state assessments. At the High School level, a high-performing Reward School is a Title 1 school with the highest graduation rates.

A high-progress Reward School is a Title 1 school that is in the top 25 percent in annual improvement and in the top 25 percent of schools showing ability to close performance gaps based on system safeguards.

“I am so thrilled for our campus and so proud of the teachers/staff and students for all their efforts,” said Valencia Ray, Brown Elementary Principal. “It is wonderful to be recognized for the hard work that happens daily at all of our campuses in Whitehouse ISD. It is definitely an award that we will display with pride.”

Schools that have been named Reward Schools have proven success in improving instruction quality, closing achievement gaps, increasing equity and improving education outcomes.

“Cain has a legacy of success and it is my goal to continue this legacy as we do whatever it takes to ensure success for all our students,” said Sandi Jones, Cain Elementary Principal.
