Rewarding school: Snoqualmie Elementary dubbed 'High Progress'

Snoqualmie Elementary School (SES) was recently recognized a Reward (high-progress) School by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). It is one of 69 highest-performing and/or highest-progress Title I schools in Washington state to be designated a Reward School for 2013-14, based on the school’s performance over three years.

Snoqualmie Elementary qualified as a high-progress Reward School by scoring in the top 10 percent of Title I schools for sustained progress in reading and math over a three-year period, according to Washington State’s Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Flexibility Request requirements.

"We subscribe to the notion of continuous improvement in our schools and across the district," said Snoqualmie Valley Schools Superintendent Joel Aune at a recent School Board meeting. "The improvements that have been achieved at Snoqualmie Elementary over an extended period of time—and especially during the past three years—is a credit to the staff's commitment to seeking out better ways to improve student learning. They have been deliberate and consistent in their work---staying the course and staying focused over an extended period of time."
