State Recognizes Positive School Data
Washington State will recognize schools virtually for closing gaps, achievement, and growth during Washington School Recognition Week


Congratulations to Alice V. Hedden Elementary recognized by the state of Washington for closing gaps for the students with disabilities!

Washington schools stand out for closing gaps, achievement, and growth according to new data released by the state. Washington state has re-imagined the recognition system to highlight schools that have received support and are thriving, and highlight positive systems changes that are happening in all regions.

The state Legislature has acknowledged the last week in April as Washington School Recognition Week (April 27 – May 1, 2020). 

"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!”

The State Board of Education, along with partners and schools are asked to celebrate safely during Washington School Recognition Week by posting to social media. Data supporting the reason each school was selected for recognition is featured on SBE’s website and will be shared via social media all week with the hashtag #WASchoolsWeek.  

“The Legislature is dedicated to recognizing the great work Washington schools do,” said Senator John McCoy, of Tulalip, 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.”
