Park Place Elementary School has proven to be successful in classroom efforts —despite having a high percentage of economically disadvantaged students and a high mobility rate — and that success has led to it being chosen for a best practices case study project being conducted by the Texas Education Agency.
Representatives from the TEA and Texas Comprehensive Center at the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory will meet with the school’s administration and conduct interviews with teachers to find out more about the school’s improvement practices and successes. After all the fieldwork is completed and information is compiled, the case studies will be able available to all schools in the state.
Ten more schools in 10 other districts will also participate in the case study. All of them, as well as Park Place ES, have been designated as High Performing and High Progress Title I Reward Schools.
