State Superintendent Randy Dorn and Gov. Jay Inslee will honor 12 Washington schools for winning national awards at a ceremony tonight.
The awards, given through Title I, Part A, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, recognize schools that are meeting federal Adequate Yearly Progress and Annual Measurable Objectives standards in reading and/or math, as well as closing the opportunity gaps between white students and traditionally underrepresented students.
“I’m proud of all these schools,” Dorn said. “The fact that what they’ve done is being recognized on a national scale speaks very well to how they’re doing and how Washington state is doing.”
The awarded schools include:
Columbia Ridge Elementary Ephrata

Neah Bay Elementary Cape Flattery
Columbia Crest Elementary Eatonville
