District Wins National SchoolMatch Award

The HEB ISD has once again been named in the top 16 percent of more than 15,000 school systems nationwide as a recipient of the 2009 national SchoolMatch What Parents Want Award.

An outstanding curriculum, academic test scores, class size and an above average expenditure on pupil instruction are the criteria for this prestigious award. HEB ISD won this award in 1992 and again every year from 1994 through 2009, for providing what parents want in a school district.

SchoolMatch, an independent, nationwide service, helps corporate employee families find schools that match the needs of their children. SchoolMatch also has conducted more than 1,000 Educational Effectiveness Audits of school systems throughout the country and assists corporations with site selection studies.

SchoolMatch selected school districts to receive the award based on the results of more than 95,000 parent questionnaires completed by SchoolMatch clients.

More than seven million parents accessed SchoolMatch services through a variety of website locations including national, regional, and local real estate firms, various multiple listing services, chambers of commerce, economic development offices, and other family oriented sites, as well as by personnally contacting SchoolMatch's Columbus (OH) office.

Corporations and consumers use SchoolMatch when moving across town, upgrading residences, relocating to a new area, when negotiating child custody issues and for general information about schools.

SchoolMatch maintains information on every public school system throughout the nation. The service is offered as an employee benefit by about 600 companies, including Office Depot, Ernst & Young, Hewlett Packard, KPMG Peat Marwick, Nationwide Insurance, and Cinergy Corporation.
