Issaquah Valley Elementary School is honored

February 26, 2013

By Staff

For the second year in a row, Issaquah Valley Elementary School has received recognition for dramatic increases in reading and math for 2012. Only 96 other schools in Washington earned the award.

To earn School of Distinction status, schools must be performing at least at the state average in each grade level measured in their school (third through eighth grades, and 10th grade) on reading and math assessments as measured in the spring 2012 Measures of Student Progress and High School Proficiency exams. Schools meeting the requirement were then evaluated on combined reading and math improvement over the past five years. The top 5 percent of the elementary schools, middle/junior high schools, high schools and alternative schools are designated as Schools of Distinction.

Schools of Distinction are awarded by the Center for Educational Effectiveness in conjunction with other Washington organizations, including the Association of Washington School Principals and Washington State School Directors’ Association.
