Jim McNiece, KSDE Board of Education Representative, attended last night’s USD 353 BOE meeting to present Washington Elementary with the Challenge Award.
The Challenge Award recognizes schools for outstanding achievements and uncommon accomplishments based on Kansas math and reading assessment results and other qualifying factors, specifically the sample size, ethnicity and social-emotional status of those taking the test.
Graduation rates for high schools and chronic absenteeism rates for middle and elementary schools are also factored in. The Top 100 Kansas schools are selected for this honor each year.
Congratulations Washington Elementary administrators, teachers, staff and students!!
