Manson, Orondo, Brewster schools receive honors from Washington School Recognition Program

Washington School Recognition Week April 27- May 1
 
Wenatchee - The State Board of Education, the Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee (EOGOAC), and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction have identified 20 North Central Washington schools to be honored as part of the Washington School Recognition Program.
Schools in Washington stand out for closing gaps, showing growth, and demonstrating achievement according to new data released by the state.
The state has re-imagined the recognition system to highlight schools that have received support and are thriving, and emphasize positive systems changes happening all over the state. This year, 391 schools are being recognized statewide.
Additionally, the state Legislature has acknowledged the last week in April as Washington School Recognition Week (April 27- May 1,).
“Washington schools are inspiring. With these awards we recognize the outstanding efforts of our schools and their positive impact on students,” said Washington State Board of Education Chair, Peter Maier. “The State Board, OSPI, and the Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee are excited to celebrate the diverse educational communities that support Washington’s ever-changing K-12 student population. Thank you to our state’s schools and educators for your dedication to students!”
In North Central Washington, among the schools recognized were:
• Orondo School District: Orondo Elementary and Middle School: Closing Gaps for one or more student groups at a Targeted Support school.
•  Manson School District: Manson Middle School: Closing Gaps for one or more student groups at a Targeted Support school and Growth for students who qualify for the free and reduced-price lunch program, students identifying as Hispanic, and students identifying as White.
• Manson School District: Manson High School: Growth for students who receive special education services.
• Brewster School District: Brewster Middle School: Growth for students who receive special education services.
“The Legislature is dedicated to recognizing the great work Washington schools do,” said Senator John McCoy, of Tulalip, member of the Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee and sponsor of this year’s Senate resolution honoring state-recognized schools. “With the current health concerns in our state, we are taking time to thoughtfully and safely celebrate the commitment and success of our schools in serving all students equitably.”
“We are so proud of our schools and the comprehensive focus on learning and student achievement. Our students are the future, and at the NCESD we see first-hand the level of commitment and dedication to teaching and learning so that our students can succeed. This is a tremendous honor for each of the schools,” explained North Central Educational Service District Superintendent Dr. Michelle Price.
