Congratulations: Denny, Pathfinder, WSHS win Washington Achievement Awards!

Just in from Seattle Public Schools – three West Seattle schools are on the list of 23 district-wide that have just received Washington Achievement Awards:

Twenty-three Seattle Public Schools are being honored with Washington Achievement Awards from The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). The schools earned these awards for improvements in areas including reading, English, math and overall outstanding academic success.

[West Seattle schools on the list]

Denny International Middle School – Math Growth
Pathfinder K-8 – High Progress
West Seattle High School – High Progress

“We are honored to have so many of our schools recognized for their hard work, dedication, and student success, with this prestigious award,” said Seattle Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Larry Nyland. “This recognition demonstrates the continuing efforts and achievements our students and staff are making in academic excellence.”

Schools are selected based on their statewide assessment data for the three previous years. This data is analyzed using the Achievement Index and methodology. All schools received their awards at a ceremony earlier today in Spanaway.

      I just read the list sent by the district, for the third time (I wanted to be sure not to miss anyone) – and it’s not on there. Let me check on that.
      (Added, 6 minutes later) I just pulled the Excel list of all award recipients statewide, from the state website, and it’s not on that list either. I’m having trouble directly linking to that list but the link is on the right side of this page:
