Washington State School Recognition Week is April 27 to May 1!  

Six Bellevue School District schools have been recognized by the State of Washington for making great strides to improve outcomes for students by closing gaps and showing growth and achievement in areas that make a difference to students. Congratulations to the educators, students and families at Bennett, Jing Mei, Medina, Somerset, Clyde Hill and Phantom Lake elementary schools!

What is Washington School Recognition Week? The State Board of Education (SBE), the Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee (EOGOAC), and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) created a new vision of what it means to be part of the Washington School Recognition Program, formerly known as the Washington Achievement Awards. Based on the Washington School Improvement Framework, schools are recognized more equitably for closing gaps and for growth and achievement. Learn more on the State Board of Education’s website
