Education Resource Group (ERG), a company that annually examines the student performance and operating efficiency of the 200 largest Texas school districts, has named the HEB ISD as one of top eight school districts in the state.

The 200 districts that are analyzed by ERG enroll 83 percent of the students who attend Texas public schools. The ERG analysis measures the relationship between operating expenditures and educational outcomes. Based on their most recent analysis, HEB ISD was among eight school districts in Texas to receive top honors.

HEB ISD earned what Education Resource Group designates as a “Best Practices” district. Superintendent Dr. Gene Buinger said this honor means the district is serving students, parents, and the greater HEB community.

“The combination of strong student performance and overall operating efficiency means that HEB ISD is giving parents and taxpayers the most bang for the buck,” Buinger said.

Out of the six school districts in Northeast Tarrant County, only HEB ISD earned top honors.

Among the school districts in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, HEB ISD shared “Best Practices” status with Richardson ISD. The other six top districts in Texas were in the Houston area and Rio Grande Valley.
