Congratulations! Your school is being honored at the June 6 School Recognition Event for high achievement in ELA and SQSS measures.
Over the past year, the State Board of Education (SBE), the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), and the Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee (EOGOAC) worked together to revise the Washington State school recognition system to more equitably recognize schools.
The first round of recognition under the new system will be held on June 6. This event will take place concurrently in both Olympia and Spokane, Washington.
SBE, OSPI, and EOGOAC are recognizing schools who have demonstrated performance along a continuum of improvement, closing opportunity gaps in the Washington School Improvement Framework (WSIF) measures. Measures for the first year include both academic indicators (proficiency, growth, graduation rate, English language progress) as well as school quality and student success measures (dual credit participation, regular attendance, and ninth grade on track rates).
Chair, Washington State Board of Education
