Snoqualmie Elementary Earns State-Recognized School Award

Snoqualmie Elementary School (SES) is being honored on June 6 at the Washington State School Recognition Event in Olympia, as one of 216 schools receiving special recognition. SES was named a State-Recognized School for growth in the Washington School Improvement Framework metrics while narrowing the gap between the highest and lowest performing student groups.

New Recognition Criteria:

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. They are recognizing schools who have demonstrated performance along a continuum of improvement, closing opportunity gaps in the Washington School Improvement Framework 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).

 

For more information about the new methodology used and other schools recognized this year, please visit the State Board of Education website.

 

Congratulation Snoqualmie Elementary students, staff and families!
