Washington Elementary School staff were invited to the Colorado Department of Education in Denver to accept a Governor's Distinguished Improvement Award

Distinguished Improvement Awards are bestowed on schools that demonstrate exceptional student growth through Colorado's statewide assessment system. These schools exceed expectations on the School Performance Framework indicator related to longitudinal academic growth, and they meet or exceed expectations on the indicator related to academic growth gaps. Washington earned this award on the strength of 4th and 5th-grade academic growth in Math at the 80th percentile and English Language Arts growth at the 56th percentile. There is no better way to exemplify our core belief valuing academic growth than to earn an award such as this.
Congratulations Washington!
