Clark, Creekside honored as schools of distinction

December 3, 2013

By Staff

The Issaquah School District had two schools — Clark Elementary and Creekside Elementary — earn 2013 School of Distinction awards in October.

The awards were given to 55 elementary schools, 24 middle/junior high schools and 23 high schools throughout the state.

To attain the honor, schools must demonstrate outstanding student performance and improvements over a five-year period. Student achievement in both reading and math must be above the state median. Both math and reading improvements must be among the top 5 percent of the state’s schools.

Each regional Educational Service District in the state will host an awards ceremony at a future date to recognize their area’s award winners.

The Center for Educational Effectiveness, the Association of Educational Service Districts, the Association of Washington School Principals, the Washington Association of School Administrators and the Washington State School Directors’ Association sponsor the awards.
