School of Distinction Awards
- Posted December 6, 2015, 10:00 pm
Today it was announced that three YSD schools are awarded SCHOOL OF DISTINCTION by the Center for Educational Effectiveness.
Now in its 9th year, the School of Distinction (SOD) awards were created in the summer of 2007 to recognize the highest improving schools in Washington State. The awards are not intended as a replacement for state and federal accountability measures of school performance, but rather as a supplemental measure to recognize and celebrate school staff, students, and leaders who improve performance for all students over a sustained period of time in reading/English language arts (ELA) and mathematics.
We congratulate the students and staff of these schools for their accomplishments and this recognition. Please tune in to KIMA tonight as well as the Yakima Herald tomorrow for media exposure of this honor. For more details, attached are some informational pdfs from the CEE website
