STILLWATER ELEMENTARY AND RIVERVIEW LEARNING CENTER’S PARADE PROGRAM NAMED WASHINGTON STATE RECOGNIZED SCHOOLS
On April 22, the Washington State Board of Education, the Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee (EOGOAC), and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction identified 391 schools statewide to receive recognition. Riverview School District is proud to announce that Stillwater Elementary and the PARADE Program, at the Riverview Learning Center, have earned statewide recognition as a Washington State Recognized School!
For a Washington State school to earn recognition from these organizations, they must show achievement in closing gaps, showing growth, and demonstrating achievement.
Stillwater Elementary earned recognition for achieving growth in Math and English/Language Arts for a majority of students, as well as students with disabilities. For a school to be identified in this area, at least one student group at the school must have posted outcomes in the Top 10 percent of schools, on at least 60 percent of the measures for which the school was eligible.
The PARADE Program earned recognition for achievement in English/Language Arts, regular attendance, and for 9th grade students being designated as “on-track” for graduation.
"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!”
