Three district schools identified as 2019 State Recognized Schools
May 28, 2019—Three district schools have been designated State Recognized Schools by the State Board of Education for demonstrating exemplary performance and making significant strides in closing the opportunity and achievement gaps and improving student achievement.
Bryn Mawr Elementary School is recognized for making the largest annual gains on the Washington School Improvement Framework measurement and narrowing the gap between the highest and lowest performing student groups.
Campbell Hill Elementary Schools is recognized for closing gaps and demonstrating improvement among student groups identified for support.
Nelsen Middle School is recognized for closing gaps and demonstrating improvement among student groups identified for support.
The distinction is part of the state’s upgraded recognition system designed to align with standards of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The new policy incorporates state and local data to better identify schools showing remarkable progress in growth and achievement.
The schools will be honored at a statewide celebration in Olympia on June 6.
