HISD one of four finalists for award
A decade after the Houston Independent School District won the inaugural Broad Prize for Urban Education, it has been named by The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation as one of four urban school districts in the country selected as a finalist for the 2012 Broad Prize.
If the district wins, it will receive $550,000 in college scholarships for seniors who graduate in 2013. The district is guaranteed $150,000 as a finalist.
The Broad Prize for Urban Education honors urban school districts that demonstrate the greatest overall performance and improvement in student achievement while reducing achievement gaps among poor and minority students.
