For the second year in a row, Jason Lee Elementary is being recognized by state education officials for closing achievement gaps and helping students grow and be ready for their futures.
The state’s State-Recognized School designation—determined by the State Board of Education (SBE), the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), and the Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee (EOGOAC)—aims to equitably recognize schools and the progress of their students within the Washington School Improvement Framework (WSIF).
The framework includes academic indicators such as student proficiency, growth and graduation rates as well as school quality and student success measures such as attendance and participation in dual credit opportunities. This year's winners were determined by student performance on the state’s Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBAs) for math and language arts from the 2018-19 school year.
The state board will recognize all State-Recognized Schools during a social media campaign throughout School Recognition Week from April 27 to May 1.
