ERP maintains the nation’s largest database on student achievement and uses the data to identify higher-performing schools and districts. School districts that receive the ERP Honor Roll distinction have demonstrated consistently high levels of academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. For districts with high schools, the ERP Honor Roll recognition also includes measures of college readiness.
