Chain Lake Elementary Named as State Recognized School

A huge congratulations to Chain Lake Elementary on recently being named as a Washington State Recognized School!

The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, State Board of Education, and Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee have created a new system of recognizing and celebrating schools' achievement on the Washington School Improvement Framework (WSIF) measures. The new recognition system places more emphasis on schools which are making progress closing opportunity gaps among student groups, as well as schools which have lower levels of achievement, but are seeing high levels of progress.

Recognized schools measure within the top 20 percent on the WSIF measures and are making significant progress closing gaps among student groups that have been identified for support.

Chain Lake Elementary has received the honor of being named a 2017-18 Washington State-Recognized School for closing student achievement gaps and demonstrating high levels of improvement among their English Language Learner (ELL) students on the Smarter Balanced Assessment.

"Every school which earned a State-Recognized School distinction this year should be very proud of their students and their staff," said Kevin Laverty, Chair of the State Board of Education.

Chain Lake Elementary, along with other state-wide recognized schools, will be recognized on June 6 in Olympia and Spokane, WA.
