Tuesday, December 18, 2012
Two local elementary schools have made the prestigious statewide, “Schools of Distinction” list.
The awards were created by the Center for Educational Effectiveness in the summer of 2007, to recognize the highest improving schools in the state.
This year, Grass Valley Elementary in Camas and Cape Horn-Skye Elementary in Washougal were honored.
"The awards are not designed as a replacement for state and federal accountability measure of school performance, but rather as a supplemental measure to recognize and celebrate school staff, students and leadership who improve performance for all students over a sustained period of time," stated the CEE website.
