I am happy to report that Mukilteo Elementary School is a recipient of the 2016 Washington Achievement Award.
Mukilteo Elementary School is being honored for High Progress.
This is an extraordinary accomplishment and is a direct reflection of the hard work of our students, the dedication of our teachers, and the support and guidance of our parents. Mukilteo Elementary's award is well deserved. In the past year(s), Mukilteo Elementary has implemented several improvements that have impacted our students’ success.
The Washington Achievement Awards are sponsored by the Washington State Board of Education and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. They celebrate Washington’s top-performing schools and recognize achievement in many categories. This highly-selective award is based on our school’s performance on the Washington State Achievement Index.
The Washington Achievement Award is given in seven categories: Overall Excellence, High Progress, English Language Arts Growth, Math Growth, Extended Graduation Rate (high and comprehensive schools only) English Language Acquisition, and Achievement Gap.
I hope you will visit the OSPI Washington Achievement awards site to learn more about the awards and the criteria for selection.
The selection process for the Washington Achievement Award is very rigorous, and all of us take great pride in this accomplishment.
