Three Battle Ground schools recognized by state

Washington School Recognition Program LogoThree schools in the Battle Ground Public Schools district have earned awards as State Recognized Schools for the 2018-19 school year, ranking them among the highest performing schools in the state in terms of growth and achievement.

Amboy Middle School was recognized for growth for students identifying as Hispanic; Tukes Valley Middle School was recognized for Growth for students identifying with Two or More Races; and CAM Academy, which also received recognition last year, was recognized for Achievement for ELA, Math, Graduation, Regular Attendance, and 9th Grade On-Track.

“Battle Ground schools earning recognition from the state shows how committed our talented staff is to supporting our students and their families,” said Superintendent Mark Ross. “Helping our students achieve success academically and in their future professional lives gets to the heart of why we all became educators, and I’m so impressed by the work that is being done by our teachers and staff every day.”

The three Battle Ground schools are among 24 honored schools from Southwest Washington and 391 statewide. All schools will be acknowledged by the State Board of Education during next week’s legislatively acknowledged Washington State School Recognition Week, April 27-May 1.

“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!”

Based on the Washington School Improvement Framework, criteria for recognition factors in metrics such as growth, achievement, attendance and completion of dual credit coursework. More information about the methodology can be found on the SBE methodology web page. The program was developed by the State Board of Education, Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee and Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction.
