2018-19 Washington Achievement Award
The Washington State School Recognition program has awarded Evergreen Forest Elementary a recognition award for closing gaps for one or more student groups. Specifically, this for was for students with disabilities (special education) in the 2018-19 school year.
“At Evergreen Forest, our success stems from all staff being on the same page and working together towards the same targeted goals,” said Evergreen Forest Principal Stephanie Hollinger. “The collaboration between our general education and special education staff has helped us align our work and close the gaps in multiple areas. We identify problem areas, seek solutions, and then work together cohesively to achieve success. It is a focused effort by the entire staff!
The Washington School Recognition Program uses state and local data to identify schools that have made gains in targeted areas and are on a path toward overall improvements in achievement, growth, and closing opportunity gaps. It is supported by the Washington State Board of Education, OSPI, and the Educational Opportunity Gap Oversight and Accountability Committee to celebrate the diverse educational communities that support Washington's ever-changing K-12 student population.
