Memorial Field is currently under construction. The grand stands are not accessible at this time. Temporary seating has been installed on either side of the grand stands for visiting team guests. The home team will be on the far side of the field. Portable bleachers have been brought in to accommodate home team fans. A tunnel has been constructed that will allow access to the restrooms, locker rooms and stadium entrance. It is very important to move quickly through the tunnel as it will be a point of congestion.
Washington Achievement Award combines state’s Accountability Index and federal accountability criteria
OLYMPIA— A total of 413 schools are 2013 Washington Achievement Award winners. Winners were notified Monday via email from State Superintendent Randy Dorn and State Board of Education Chair Dr. Kristina Mayer.
The Washington Achievement Award is sponsored by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the State Board of Education. Award winners are selected using the state’s Accountability Index and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Flexibility Waiver.
“It is important that we use the revised Achievement Index to not only provide feedback to schools and districts on their progress, but also to identify schools with exemplary student performance,” said Mayer. “These awards shine the light on what is working well in schools across Washington.”
Schools are recognized as top performers in one of six categories:
Dorn supports this collaboration. “So many schools in our state are doing good work to make a difference for kids,” he said. “These awards represent some of the best. It’s an honor to recognize them and celebrate their success.”
The award-winning schools will be honored at a ceremony on April 24 at Timberline High School in Lacey.
