Local schools claim achievement awards

 


A dozen schools from the ESD 105 south central Washington region are among the recipients of the eight annual Washington Achievement Awards, which the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) describes as “the state’s highest honor” for its public schools. The 280 schools across the state that are receiving the award this year will be honored during a ceremony on Wednesday, May 3, at the Auburn School District’s Olympic Middle School.

Award winners are selected on calculations based on student test scores collected statewide over the previous three years. These scores measure student proficiency in math, English language arts, science, student growth, and college and career readiness. Schools must have at least a 95 percent participation rate on state tests in order to be eligible for the award.

The 12 schools from the ESD 105 region receiving the Washington Achievement Award are:

Goldendale Primary School – for English Language Arts Growth

Bickleton Elementary and High School – for Math Growth

Cle Elum-Roslyn Elementary School – for Closing the Achievement Gap (Students with Disabilities)
